    L4 question

    Simple question really as I'm thinking down the road a bit of a build.

    What would be the proper finish for an L4 bren gun? Circa 1965.

    Thank you in advance.

    2 to 3 round bursts followed by emptying the magazine as a grand finale.

    I believe that would be good as grand finale mate.... But not so much as a surface finish.

    Peter Laidlericon stated in a couple of threads here that from the time after WW2 they were bead blasted and phosphate finished, and Suncorite painted as required.

    The ones I used in MG Falling Plate matches were just blued......and very thin, but the general run of issues were phosphated.

    That must have been great shoots. You could almost have had a coffee back of the line while the gun did the work...

    BAR they were fun, however the L2A1 heavy barrel outshot them 8 times out of 10 and it was a lot lighter for the rundowns as well.
