    We only had Mk3 Brens and L4A2's in Malaya plus the odd L4A1 that you'd see kicking around. When the Battalions went back to Oz it was back to Mk1's and 2's, leaving the UKicon issue L4's for the next battalion and so on. But in 68/9 or so, it was all M60. You can imagine the disappointment after being brought up with the GPMG/L7/FN-MAG!

    I can. When I went to Australiaicon in '77 it was all M60s except when we contacted an armoured unit in the field. There was a 7.62 Bren, unknown to me what mark or model but I wanted to try that one out...since I was the machine gunner anyway. Then I had to wait until the end '80s to get the MAG in form of the C6 here. The I could understand what Peter would be on about. As one said, where was this when we WANTED to do this stuff?

    It JUST lets one close the bipod around it on the Bren. With the No.1 style bipod, I have to let the feet down a couple of notches to clear the grip. I suspect if I was running a no. 2 or No. 3 bipod, the feet may not pass by the pistol grip to fold in a rearward stowed position? I will have to try this. I currently do not own a No. 2 but have a No. 3 bipod.

    The grip is a tad long for my taste, but I have not been so bold yet to cut a inch or so off the bottom of one yet. I would like to even it out with the rear grip so if I stood the gun on just the grips, the rifle would sit parallel with a table top.
