    No problem, I wouldn't expect you to know but just a note, it wasn't the first. The Bren was actually one of the first guns I tried making. Granted, that was back when I had very little experience.

    I was hoping for a little more but the Bren is kind of a complicated looking weapon. A decent attempt.

    A repeating sling, yeah. When I first started off, I was working a lot with a rubber band firing mechanism.

    Well yes and no. I was incorrect with what I said, my gun was technically semi auto. But the term repeater means that you have to cock the gun every time you want to fire but it has a magazine or other ammo storage and loading mechanism so that you don't need to load the weapon after every shot.
