The BREN Machine Gun, usually called the Bren, was a series of machine guns adopted by Britain in the 1930s and used in various roles until 1991. The Bren Mk2 was much simplified in the body, which although still being milled from a solid billet of steel, required significantly fewer milling operations than the Mk1 which gave it a much cleaner appearance. The bipod, woodwork and barrel were also simplified making production quick and rate of fire slightly higher.
