    WTB Bren Gun Receiver Jig.

    Looking for a jig for a bren build. Used is OK. Not really looking for the 300-400 dollar ones. This will be my only Bren build. If you have one you can let go, let me know. Thanks, Roger.

    Roger are you just needing a bottom rail jig? (pirates style) got 1 i'll sell you for $75

    or are you wanting a full on spacing jig? those are gonna cost at least $250 when they pop up.

    sdk, if your bottom rail jig is full length, then that will work for what i need. Send me a PM on purchase information. Roger.

    as you can see ... back in the early days we had some confusion over which number set was exactly correct..


    HONESTLY? if the mag fits in the magwell & the lockring fits on the barrel?

    the couple of K's of length difference in the rest of the receiver dont mean anything... its just space back there that your striker & carrier travel in.

    get your magwell correct, get your lock ring for the barrel correct.. set your front spacing for any other cuts off of where your barrel seats in the receiver.

    Roger here are a couple more pdf's & a picture which is HUGE.... it might give you that other number you want or one that will help you get it as its pretty detailed.

    in scoping thru the threads with JoeH it came back up on the number transposing in that 1 drawing.. it really is supposed to be that changed number. :-)

    heres more pix & stuff.
