I love buying the Collector Grade Publishing books on all of the machine guns that I own.  I see that they have never made one for the BREN.  :(

 

Is there one that may be coming out, or is there an equally good book already out?

 

Thanks,

Mike

You need to look at the Bren Gun Saga. Second edition is better but the first is fine if thats all you can get. There are a number of errors still in the second as things have only become clearer after the second print run. Publisher is ......... collector grade publishing......

Amazon are nil stock but here is what to look for

https://www.amazon.c...y/dp/0889352496

Peter Laidler has written a manuscript that is more detailed than the BGS and it is sat with CGP but I dont think they are keen to publish as yet. Not sure if thats because they think there is still life in the BGS or something else. It would be a shame not to publish it as the detail is focused a lot more on the Bren and less on the forerunners of the Bren found in the BGS.
