    Looks like a Bren sans barrel...so a Czech zb?
    Could be a zb, has some "lines" that match up. And more likely to be in German hands vs a Bren

    It's a Bren or the same family I'm sure. Interesting find though.

    Odd you'd find a Bren in with a cache of weapons hidden by the Germans...but heh! you never know.

    Hi

    Personally, I would say Brengun mk.2 or ZGB-33.

    These relic-weapons, is going to be taken care of by the local museum.
    ...so perhaps, we get the answer later.

    Regards

    Great find and it looks similar to a ZB to me!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Not a ZB, none of the ZB guns look quite like that. Its a Bren Mk 2 without barrel and bipod. It looks to be a Canadian Inglis made gun rather than a British Daimler. I wonder if these are resistence guns hidden under the Germans nose.

    Hmmm. Very interesting turn of thought. Would explain the mix of weapons...but would the resistance have MG42's??

    Good to know they are not simply going to be destroyed.

    What an exciting find -

    I zoomed in the best I could on the firearm on the far right - it looks very like a ZB26/30 -
    A pic of my ZB26 for reference is below -
    Except that the length of the lower receiver seems to be the longer type used by the Bren, were the ZB lower receiver section is stubby, just the gas tube unprotected beneath the barrel - but tough to tell.
    I'm inclined to think it is a Bren not a Mg/Zb26/30t



    That said my eye sight combined with the rust and degradation of the pictured example is not to be trusted.

    The only fact is, that I would like to examine and help restore these finds in person

    Did German's ever use Brens?
    (Yes, I know it's a famous pic, posed probably...)


    The firearm to the left of the center MG42 looks interesting - too.
