These parts are from a Bren light machine gun. Made in Britain. There are a few different variants of this weapon and several parts will interchange between them. It looks like you have a mixture of parts from a couple different models. The buttplate fits an MK3 variant. Almost all of the other parts fit the L4 variant, which uses some of the same parts as the MK1, so some parts will fit both the L4 and MK1. Links to these exact parts for sale. The last link shows the differences between the Bren variants.

Rejected

Reason:
It just says "HKP 69" on it. I don't see a caliber.
