Short version of a Bren lmg.

Unread postAuthor: Stephen Holliday » Wed Feb 25, 2009 12:36 pm

This is my short version of a WW2 Bren lmg. I made this to hold more bbs, about 4000, by adding a gravity feed clip on top that feed down after the chamber empties. The block is 3 quarter in. pieces of plexiglass glued together. The barrel is 5/16 brake line I had on hand. The window is plexiglass and the grips are flared on the bottom.

To load the clip you turn the gun upside down and fill it then the chamber. The bolt on the plunger stops behind the slot of the clip.

Looking good!

But have you thought about the magazine hindering your sight for aiming?

Maybe paint it in multiple colors (like this green and the handle or barrel black) instead of everything the same color.

I love it.
It's different, but oozing craftmanship.

Now give it a black coat and it's all good.
You seem to have lurked for quite a while!

I love it, you can tell you put some decent time into making it. Although I'm not exactly loving the green paint I would paint the barrel guard black that would be ownage. :D

It's Nerf or Nothing.

Don't start crying when I play this as my hobby, Paintball, Airsoft and Nerf are equally good hobbies, except you can play Nerf in public. Good day! Hmph!

Nice, personally I'm not a bb hose guy (I'd rather a steady, more powerful full automatic mechanism that is more efficient) but I do appreciate guys who spruce up their bbmg's, or even model them after real guns. How does it shoot with the extra magazine?

Very nice job.

I know. But it still is in the way of your "ironsights".

The Bren has a peep sight that sets to the left of the mag. I didn't put it on because you can just aim down barrel. These guns were spray and pray anyway.
