New for 2019: CZ-USA BREN 2 Ms Pistol

posted on June 25, 2019
New from CZ-USA for 2019, the BREN 2 Ms Pistol shares the same look as the service rifle for the Czech military. However, the Bren 2 Ms Pistol is a “clean-sheet design,” integrating a modular fore-end that provides a more-streamlined profile while still allowing for easy accessory attachment. The BREN 2 Ms is much lighter than its predecessor, using a trimmed-down aluminum receiver with a lower half made from carbon fiber-reinforced polymer. This weight reduction results in a robust and reliable firearm that is substantially handier and more-easily carried than earlier versions.

The reciprocating charging handle on previous models of the BREN is gone, replaced with a handle that stays in place until it’s needed. The handle also doubles as a forward assist.

CZ-USA has also added is an ambidextrous AR-style bolt catch/release system along with an ambidextrous safety, making it easy to use for shooters used to the operation of the AR-15 platform. 

The Bren 2 Ms Pistol is available in one of six variations:

  • .223 Rem./5.56 NATO with an 8.2-inch barrel
  • .223 Rem./5.56 NATO with an 11.14-inch barrel
  • .223 Rem./5.56 NATO with a 14.17-inch barrel
  • 7.62x39 mm with a 9.0-inch barrel
  • 7.62x39 mm with an 11.14-inch barrel
  • 7.62x39 mm with a 14.17-inch barrel
The .223 Rem./5.56 NATO models use AR-15-style magazines, while the 7.62x39 mm models use CZ factory magazines All BREN 2 Ms Pistol feature a flush rear plate which allows you to attach an AR-style buffer tube for the installation of an arm brace or similar stabilizing device or the entire rear plate can be removed and replaced with a factory folding/adjustable stock for use as an SBR.
