    I cant remember if you pressed a button or pulled the trigger ?? and it started a sequence in slow motion of the moving parts, I've mentioned it before cant remember who replied regarding the finer details, I'll have to dig my Bren cutaway out, not a SKS one but I guess an apprentice one as it has more detail and more meat machined than the SKS.
    Come on Geoff, the people demand Bren cutaway pics!

    Just to add to the UKicon legal position on instructional cutaways...

    I contacted my local Police authority before I bought my first example and as peter said, the Police (or both proof houses) have no issue with them, providing they are totally inert, with no reusable pressure baring parts of any kind.

    The other advice I was given (and I would strongly suggest is followed) was only buy one from a RFD, that way due diligence has been taken by all parties.

    And finally ...So far at least, here's my VZ58 instructional action, a fascinating and very compact tilting bolt design.

    Just like the other two eastern block cutaways, the chamber's been sectioned by 50%, so not designed to chamber an inert round.

    The round would simply fall out sideways!

    The bolt has been bisected in half to show the firing pin trackway.

    So...you can't even leave it so it will just hold a cartridge? Just enough material? Don't know here, we have dewats and not dewats. I don't think they have a category for cutaways in FAs. Our new dewats must be welded solid. They might not want to consider a cutaway dewat.

    They don't really have a category here Jim..

    They are totally inert and not capable of discharging anything, so not of concern or interest to the authorities.



    The lack of chambering, was (I would guess) not a requirement of the eastern block instructors.
