The new CZ Bren 2 offers numerous improvements over the previous 805 Bren that are sure to make this a new favorite among practical/tactical shooters. The reciprocating charging handle on the old model is gone in favor of a non-reciprocating charging handle on the new Bren 2 which can be swapped by the user to their preferred side of the gun. Lighter weight materials make for an overall lighter platform than the previous version. Offered in both 5.56/.223 and 7.62x39, this piston driven pistol has a rear plate which is threaded to accept an AR15 buffer tube so it's an excellent candidate for any pistol brace designed for the AR platform. The safety, magazine release, and bolt catch are all located in positions which will feel familiar to shooters already accustomed to the AR platform.
