    Your MkII purchase sounds like a very nice package. I would be proud to own that, but building it piece by piece now would be my challenge. All things Bren related are interesting to me, but as time...

    tr63, not challenging or disparaging any of your comments, but in light of some things said, I often collect based on practicality. Practicality of price and usefulness.

    Remember when Sten mags were $5.00? I would guess some here remember when they were even less!?

    Hate to make it this simple, but have you backed the “adjustment screw” out? I recall that when it is in the “tightened all the way down” position, it will indeed not allow you to fit pin thru...

    It’s how are career paths are chosen. If you could do the same thing with biological systems, you’d have been a surgeon! 😉

    Another alternative, requiring less equipment, is petroleum jelly, spread it on, let it sit, then wash it off. Then paint with a high temp auto paint in flat back. I did this on some M-14 mags I ran...

    10-4 Brian. Might I suggest one of the modern plastic ammo can copies? I tend to follow the old school powder and primer storage rule. Don’t want it in something that will become shrapnel should it...

    With all due respect, I disagree about not maintaining two sections. The Semi auto crowd is as large as the full auto crowd. This is a particularly American development. If we learn the items by...

    Yeah. Sad to look back and think of the good ole days as the 80’s and 90’s. But that is what the surplus world is like. Wonder what beauties will be overestimated over the next decade!?

    Tr63, couple of comments. Your issue, is not strictly speaking, a semi auto problem. As parts kits, yoru guns are technically cut up machine guns. But as you move forward, there are particular issues...

    WallyG, I had not thought of it in that fashion, but yes, I suppose if the spring was the same diameter (1/2") as the nylon bushing, than yes,. It should be short and stout. Like a tea pot! lol

    The .303's may have had the same reaction to warmer/hot weather?

    RedRobTam, the video is a great guide, but it does leave out a few points that you will discover on your own along the way. It is a good parts identifier, of sorts. It does not show little nuances...
