I just got myself a 1943 MK1 Bren gun deactivated by Ryton Arms
and I am on the look out for a Transit box to store it in, anyone
got one lying around being used as a tool box? Also has anyone
got any detailed spec on these guns?

A couple of pictures

I have a 1937 pattern webbing spare parts wallet for the Bren, if you're interested.

Would the wooden GPMG boxes do?

Different fittings unfortunately. I doubt there are many similarities at all.

The fittings can be removed though, and with a little jiggery pokery, can be adapted. He didn't specify that he wanted a pukka Bren transit box.
 
I know where there are pukka Mk 1 BRENs in boxes - complete with cleaning kits, instruction manuals et al. They are held by the Albanian Army and were sent there during WW" by the Brits.

I have a mate who demils some of this stuff so I will see if he can get you a box. TBH its a long shot but I need to speak to him this weekend anyways so I will let you know.

Kieron - pm me on this.
 
Email world wide arms.

faling that try an arms fair they are generally knocking around.

I might have a couple of spare .303 mags and an original & toolbelt bag somewhere, I'll have a shufty

FFS MDN, you can afford a cover for your Bren, but not carpet for the house.
Come on man, get your priorities sorted out man! :D
