    Thanks Jim ,that is the Bren Gun tripod MKI I have , but I am missing the 2 light gauge steel tubes that store inside the right and left side frame tubes of the tripod . These tubes when joined together make up the third leg when the bipod is set up for AA usage . If I could see how they are made I will try to fabricate them . My tripod has the leg your Bren is attached to in your picture , which is the front leg of the MKI or the MKI* .

    You can ask over in the WTB forum...again, there are some that have enough of this stuff that they may have a donor. You could always just use your #1 rifle to hold it up...

    Jim I want to use the nose guard from a MkIII rifle and attach it to !" steel tube stock. This will fit into the AA retainer on the MKI bipod . I will have to re-fabricate it in order for it to slide into the side tube on the bipod, where it is stored when it is not used as the third leg for AA purposes . I have a nose guard on order from Gunparts Corp. .Cutting and reworking the nose guard will be interesting in the least !!!

    Did you ever make that tripod front leg? If so can you please share a few pics of it?
    Also any more suggestions on how you did it.
    The problem is that a lot of the folks that I've talked to in our weapons area have not seen the poles. Most of them are gone, long gone.
    In GB or Franceicon they might be out there just not around here.

    Are you looking for the T&E or just a single adapter piece?
