Apparently the British machined Bren receivers out of one very heavy block of steel. Not real cost effective, but good for longevity. The Bren stayed in service, in 7.62x51, in the british army until they switched to the FN MAG in the 80's. That a LMG could stay in service for that long says something about the quality and applicability of the weapon.

The 1919/BAR/Monitor was a great gun too.
