Offered in two calibers and multiple barrel lengths, CZ’s new Bren 2 Ms pistol series platform is headed for a U.S. landfall.
Using an aluminum receiver and a carbon fiber-reinforced polymer lower, the pistol is a lot less beefy than CZ’s 805 Bren line it replaces but still has a weight that runs in the 5~pound range with slight variances from 5.4- to 5.86-pounds depending on caliber and barrel length.
Speaking of which, the Bren 2 Ms has 14- and 11-inch barrel offerings in both standard calibers as well as dropping down to a more compact 8-inch (5.56/.223 only) and 9-inch (7.62x39mm) model for those who want a bit more of a fire breather.
Continuing a rundown of the specs, overall length varies from 19.9- to 25.8-inches depending on variant.
While the 7.62x39mm Bren 2 Ms at the top of the page uses proprietary CZ factory magazines, the 5.56/.223 versions accept AR-15 style mags.
Each pistol comes standard with a single 30-round magazine– AR-15 style for the .223 variants– and
