I figured you all would chuckle on this one, I still am shaking my head. I watch GunBroker and the likes for Maltby rifles and a bit ago I came across a 1941 Maltby on GB. Correct low wall foreend, correct round style cocking piece, it appeared all correct for an early Maltby. So, I put it in my watch list..... and forgot about it When I finally remembered and went and checked the auction was over.... and it sold for less than $400. The one that got away I guess.

That's unfortunate. We all pass by opportunities occasionally. 
Last week I found a semi auto Bren for sale in france. it's the first time I've ever seen one for sale here. I would love to own it; but it's 1500 Euro's and I do not have the space or the funds available at the moment. It would also take a few month's of paperwork to complete the deal. 
Still; it would be nice thoughCry

Oh Bear, I did post a few extra photo's of the Resistance Maltby. Let me know if they are what you needed.
See the original thread.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Sometimes I forget all the steps you have to go through to buy a firearm. We sure take it for granted over here. On the upside, at least you got to see a Bren. I have never seen anything more than pictures. Would be nice to have a semiauto example but that cost is tough.
