L2A1 Transit Chest

Hi everyone,

For the man (or lady) that has everything and for all the purists out there, I have a genuine Australian L2A1 Transit Chest laying around collecting dust. I was hoping to gauge the level of interest out there for such an item. Hereís the catch; Iím not looking to sell it, Iím looking to gift it. The only problem is, itís so genuine, that itís still in Australian soil, so if anyone who would like to have this magnificent piece can arrange shipping, itís yours. So I put it to the group; if there is anyone who is interested, please get in touch.

Awesome! I would take it but I need an L2A1 first.. top of my bucket list. Hopefully it goes to an upstanding member that will take it for what it is and not turn it around for a profit.


How about some pics for the rest of us?

I'll definitely take 2nds!!!! My L2A1 would go great with it. But, if I don't get it, please allow me to make a direct copy. That would be awesome as well.

If you want a chest for an L2A1, hunt around and find a Bren Gun Chest, a lot of the chests were re-purposed Bren Gun Chests.

I have a Bren transit case. I'd like to see some detailed pics of an L2 case if anyone has some to post.

Thank you sir. I'll do a search when I get home. Hopefully they didn't become a victim of Photobucket.

Apologies for the delay in replying; I was in the process of moving and Iím sure you can all appreciate the shit fight and pain in the ass that moving involves. Thank you all for your interest. This one has been gifted, however donít despair; you never know when another one might appear in the new year..

For everyoneís interest, you can see a picture of the chest hosted here: (https://ibb.co/bOubaR) Iíll try and figure out how to put it up on the files properly, but hopefully the link works for now. Youíll note that she has been used and definitely isnít a safe queen, however some are into that. Very easily returned to brand new with a bit of love and a lick of paint.

If anyone would like more detailed images, dimensions, materials, weight etc, please send me a message with your email and I can send you everything you need to know should you be after a winter project and want to make an exact replica.

Wishing everyone a safe and relaxing Christmas!
