I have been looking for a semi-automatic rifle with some sort of historical value to it for a few months, but as prices have risen I feel that I have been priced out of the market. I then found a site, militarygunsupply.com, with a wide range of parts kits, which seem like an inexpensive way to get a nice rifle. The first thing to catch my eye was a Bren kit for 300 dollars including a barrel. Here is a link
I also found a site that sells all sorts of spare parts here
Now I know next to nothing about these sort of things. Would these two sites provide everything I would need to assemble this gun? Would I be able to assemble this gun, having zero knowledge or experience assembling or even cleaning guns? If not, do local gunsmiths generally offer this service?
The original site also has many other kits (here), which may be better suited to my knowledge and experience. I have $550 to spend all told.
Thank you for your time, and sorry for the large number of questions.
