    You could contact the vendor and ask for a "Partial Refund" after politely explaining what the problem is with the rifle. The worst possible outcome, in a worse case scenario, of doing this is that...

    Soften the brass first before trying to bend it.

    I agree with what you are saying Richard, but, they haven't advertised it as a WW2 sling have they? It is just advertised as a Bren sling; a Bren sling made in 1944 or 2020 is still a Bren sling. So,...

    It looks like a pretty good reproduction as repros go. If it was mine I would be inclined to apply one of the "modern permanent Blancos" to it that come in a bottle with a choice of colours. The...

    I'm seeing 1944 on my computer but part of the second "4" is very feint.
