The Bren has been used in the following films

Bren Mk1 - .303 caliber
Bren Mk2 - .303 caliber
Bren L4A4 - 7.62x51mm NATO. Note the straight magazine (due to the rimless 7.62 NATO rounds) and the slotted flash hider.



An evolution of the Czech designed ZB26 the Bren gun became one of the most successful British small arms designs of the 20th century, its use lasting well into the 1980's (albeit in 7.62mm NATO). Noted for its side mounted sights and relatively low rate of fire (500 rpm average) the Bren gun was manufactured, and used, worldwide.
