    WTB Bren Gun Mk1 charging handle

    Need a Bren Gun Mk1 charging handle. Found my kit does not have one. Also found out that Mk2 charging handle is not the same.
    No, SARCO does not have any, they are sold out (LOL).

    Update: Found One!!!

    Is this what you need?

    Original British manufactured charging handle for the L4 & MK1 Bren machine gun, USED in good condition. In stock, only 5 left.

    It is just the handle to the slide. I need the whole thing - it is not in my Mk1 kit. Thanks for trying. I am not seeing any so far.

    Ok. I thought you needed the just the handle. I'll look some more.


    Edit: Found a slide on GB. Does not say for MK1 or not.

    Look at this kit and just under the butt stock/pistol grip is what I need -- you will see the handle with the slide. https://www.ima-usa.com/collections/...illed-receiver

    I found a Mk1 slide and handle, no pin, at militarygunsupply. I am sure find a pin somewhere, or make one.

    Cool! Making a pin shouldn't be too bad if you can't find one.

    I got it today, it was complete slide with handle spring and pin attached. I will have to do nothing to it other than drop it in. I am surprised as they
    advertised it as an incomplete unit.

    That's good. I saw they said it came without the pin.
