BREN, is that you?
Of course, whenever one says the name, BREN, one thinks of the famous Czech-British (Brno-Enfield) light machine gun that served the Allies well during WWII– and the British Army well into the 1980s.
However, in more recent years, CZ has been making the Bren 2, a design that has been well-received in Central Europe. Available over here as a pistol, the gun was introduced on the consumer market in a carbine format last month and I caught one at SHOT Show while in Vegas.
Derived from the company’s select-fire Bren 2, a modular combat rifle in the same vein as the FN SCAR, Remington/Bushmaster ACR (nee Magpul Masada), Radom FB MSBS Grot and Serbu Diabolus, the Czech-made gun uses a carbon-fiber lower and stock mated to a lightweight aluminum upper.
