LOL! Claim that he got $25 per mag for mags in such awful comdition is absurd. BREN mags are almost as common as Chatellerault M24/29 mags that are still only worth $5 apiece at best. Those mags are awful!! There are full mag carrier boxes of excellent oncition BREN mags for half that and less if you look around. FWIW

Thats a real tatty box but its a Mk1 Box. If it was in front of me I would be having a good look to see if the handle was leather and to see if the mags are Mk1 also. They may not be British or commonwealth so could easily be worth the money. The photos are so Shit that its impossible to tell.

Handle looks to be canvas not leather.  MK1 mags over in the US don't bring a premium like they do overseas.  In the US Bren mags are Bren mags and don't bring much more than $8 on a good day regardless of vintage or origin since there are so many and relatively few guns.  I bought  a complete chest for $100 recently, of minty mags and nice chest.  I offered the seller $125 if he would clean the cosmo off of them.....unfortunately he would not and I think he told me $175 if clean.  LOL

If its a canvass handle it will be Canadian and less likely to have Mk1 mags.

In the U.K. and to collectors who want them, Mk1 mags can be the equivalent of $200! If you ever find one, buy it and put it on Milweb for a tidy profit!!

APEX I think is selling decent box and mags for about 80 total ?   Mags are $7 ea.  We used to get a box and 12mags for $39.95, and I have 4-5 for my Bren. Don't even know where they all are.
