Still need semi-auto firing pin with spring & semi-auto striker with spring but no ones seems to make these parts anymore. Does anyone work on a partly finished Bren Gun for semi-auto?

Len Savage with Historic Arms out of GA did mine. I believe he may have (or can make) the parts you need.

Anyone that used to build kits or used to make parts seem to not do them anymore. I have been looking for 2 years but no luck. If you are building a Bren semi these parts are very, if not impossible to get. Got very few answers from several gun smiths if they answered at all. Very disappointed . Now a heavy paper weight.

Did you call Len at Historic Arms or Kiwi?

Historic arms does not sell parts, just complete arms according to an e-mail I received.

Did you ask them who built their Brens for them so you could contact them? I know Kiwi still builds them, but he builds everything in runs and once he build a run, he moves on to another firearm, then the next, then the next, and so on. It can a year or more for him to come back around to a specific weapon. Last time I talked to him, a few months ago, he had started a run, I believe of Brens, that he expected to be done by this month.

Join weapons guild and search for the mighty lime striker system. You should find the plans and chances are somebody has a set.

Hi,
I bought a 308 kit on Gunbroker and the seller gave me the option to buy a Mighty-Lime SA striker system which I did. That was last month, I found the firing pin at firingpins.com, also there are new gas pistons for sale on Gunbroker now.

I have two Bren kits, a 308 with original and new barrel which was Sarco and another early 303 kit which has a better cut receiver.

I‘m following the Mighty-Lime build. I now just have to find a welding jig.
