    Working on my double dovetail MKI

    Finally getting some play time and work done on my Bren double dovetail MK1. I opted to grab a BRP center section which cuts down the built time ( for me) quite a bit. Cut the gas cylinder section to length and milled both the center section and cylinder and welded them together.

    Rear receiver heel was cut a little wide and thru the take down hole. Its welded and needs cosmetic clean up but I focused on the internal section.
    The bolt and carrier do the "tilt test" and travel freely by its own weight. I built my DPM and RPD the same and they run super smooth.
