Looking for a Dewat Bren

Here's a good one....

I am looking for a dewat WW2 Bren in good condition (not a chop set rebuild).

Went to the Etobicoke show yesterday and there was one sitting on a table but I could not find the actual owner...anywhere! Apparently it was dropped off and the gentleman took off, too.

Off topic - there was a dewat example of the British Navy's Lanchester at the show. But personally not interested.

Please let me know if there are any Brens out there for sale.

Best regards,

D.C->

I saw that Bren MkII on the table....the guy was working the show. I was able to talk to him for a few minutes about it. He was askiing $2000.00. This Bren was a chop job... Thats why I was so intersted in it as I just closed the deal on a chopped job and wanted to know how the chop marks were filled, either with metal or filler. The cuts on that Bren were filled by welding. The same I am planning to do with mine soon as it is in hand.

For a super dewat bren give Rob Love at Shilo Manitoba a call. He does great work and usually sells out all he has at the gunshows out west. His stens are terrific also.
