    Bren Buiilders

    Does not look I will get any local help in my life time to build the Bren kit I have. Just talked to KIWI'S Custom Guns, Riverbank, CA, he is a Bren builder, but currently
    making a run of MG42s. When he finishes will be switching back to Bren builds. Not going to be quick, but had him put me on his list for next Bren builds. he said he
    cuts list off at about 10 per run. If anyone else is interested http://kiwiscustomguns.com/.

    BTW he makes his own 922r stuff, etc, so if this works out I will likely put the 922r kit I have up for sale on forum. Like I said it won't be quick.

    the Brens are ugly....

    but they are easy to build & shoot fantastic! you will love to shoot them, although i know for you its more about collecting them.

    Curious if you have heard of these folks? I had heard them mentioned sometime ago and saved their website. I don't remember what was said, but nothing bad or I would not
    have saved it.

    I am likely going out there late spring and could take kit and stop by their place. He said he had displays of guns he builds and a brick and mortar gun shop. He
    said he already had 4-5 names for his next Bren build cycle around July, would add mine, and caps it around 10 guns per cycle. Like I said he is current working om MG42s.
    I guess if I can wait 10 months or more for a tax stamp I can be patient on this too (LOL)

    Well, 6 months have gone by. Talked to Kiwi Custom Guns yesterday. Looks like getting closer to starting back on Bren builds, hopefully backside of this summer. I had not shipped
    my kit to them yet and was told I needed to do so. I will pack it up and ship this coming week.

    well you bumped this & now i have someone else who will be doing Brens pretty soon.

    Jared Lewman @ Lewman Arms.

    863-430-6270 M-F 10am-5pm EST
    sales@lewmanarmsmanufactuirng.com or
    Lewmanarms@gmail.com
    www.lewmanarmsmanufactuirng.com

    & to save you some time... here is a quote from Jared on his pricing.

    Ok, here are some prices I am thinking. I am trying to be fair with the pricing. The prices will be shipped to btw.

    1.) Our FP extension for your build. - $75

    2.) Modify your internals for the old extended pin style or for our extension striker setup. - $325

    3.) Modify your internals and supply our extension. - $375

    4.) Modify your lower and weld blocker in place for semi only selection. - $150

    5.) Modify your lower with internals. - $125

    6.) Complete build, you supply striker assembly. - $2000.

    good dude who is doing some pretty good stuff.... & he's also interesting to YOU in particular because he is an 02, 03, 07, SOT.
    say what you mean & mean what you say!
