    Bren Semi Conversion

    Ok, perro requested extensive pics, so here we go. Maybe make this a sticky?

    First the bolt/bolt blocking mods:

    The firing pin is a one piece pin from wise lite arms. I cannot see any other mods to the full auto parts being i dont have any full auto stuff to compare to.
    Firing pin, striker helper spring and trigger group bits

    I see no evidence of a welded in plate in the trigger group area like in other designs. A regular bren barrel fits without modifications. I will try to get better pics of my striker later, currently its in the mail, the heat treating wasnt done right and it became brittle and broke. A different heat treating method was started recently and im hopefully going to get a new one soon under warranty.

    crap, what did i do, first it displayed links, then i tried to edit them now it wont display the pics! there is a 0,1,2,3 in there before the [/img] but i dont see it when i try and edit them!

    if you copy and paste the link without the 0,1,2,3 etc it works

    Sorry I meant the hammer but I found a couple for photos in the other bren thread. It looks like they did a nice job.

    Very helpful Kevin.
    I just ordered a couple Bren II kits
    I may go with the SA conversion kit that weaponeer has.
    The mods don't look that difficult on this one.

    Fine looking Bren btw
