I am a firearms collector from Poland and this is my first post on the forum. I want to buy a deactivated BREN MK I, actually before entry into force of the new EU law... The seller sent me some photos of a particular example and it is MK I BREN gun with (commonly seen) buttstock, non adjustable bipod from MK II etc. There is nothing wrong with that, a lot of these machine guns were refurbished... The most important thing for me are the markings, especially year of production. You can clearly see on the picture, that "in the date place" the year of production was milled away, but there is a new date inside! I have seen other BREN guns with milled away date, however please help me if this particular is correct or not and what does this really mean.
Thank you very much for your time and help!
