    WANTED: BREN MKI M-Marked Sight Cam for Use w/ MK4 Barrel

    I'm searching for a BREN MKI sight cam with an "M" mark. The M-marked cams allow the MKI sight to be zeroed with the shorter MK4 barrel. Below is a picture of a regular BREN MKI sight cam for the full length barrel. My "M" is on the cam.

    I understand these were used in South Africa and perhaps India.

    Any help is appreciated.

    The MkIV barrels were made in India as we'll as in GB. I acquired several many years ago when they were available in th US and a couple are Enfield marked and the others, I believe, made at Ishapor Arsenal under Brit supervision.
    I have a lot of Bren parts and will look for some sights and check for the mark.

    Many thanks! In my thinking, the cam for the MK4 barrel raises the barrel less so the cam is therefore "smaller" in some dimensions than the normal cam for the MK1 (or MK2) barrel. This sort of makes sense because of the shorter sight radius requires less deflection. Does this make sense?

    Sorry to say that the cams that I have do not have the M marking. When one shows up it will be interesting to see the difference from the standard cam.
    Good luck finding one.

    Thanks for looking. I might have the outline of the correct cam shape for a MK4 barrel coming ---- I'll see. Thanks again.
