Weapon parts lists – Lee-Enfield, Sten, M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, Browning M1917A1, Browning M1919A4, BAR M1918A2, Bren, ZB37 (Besa)

During the filming of WW2 Treasure Hunters at the ordnance depot at Weedon Bec, we recovered a large number of weapon Parts. These were identified the second they came out of the ground because of the knowledge that both myself and members of my team have built up over the years. However, even we have to refer to the weapon manuals every now and again to identify some of the smaller parts!

I’ve collected together a few manuals of some of the main weapons used by the Allies during WW2. These manuals show the parts of the weapons and will hopefully help people identify items they have recovered themselves.

Most of the manuals are high quality, except for the Bren one which isn’t great, so apologies for that!

I’ve separated the manuals into appropriate sections below, so just scroll to the one you’re are interested in……
