Strikefire 2 arrived about 30 minutes ago. So far, I love it!
Very nice red & green dot indeed...

Gonna shoot it tomorrow to make sure all goes well and, if it does I'll more than likely get another for my M1A.
The dot lines up perfect with my sight.

Just for fun, I will take the contrarian position.

I predict the 805 vs Bren 2 will be like comparing the 3rd generation, all-steel, pistol designs like the S&W 5906 Tactical or Beretta M9A3 with the latest polymer models.

There are modest arguments to be made about lower weight and lower production cost but ultimately they don't feel as nice to shoot or last as long.

I actually see the variation of models as a benefit over time.  Something for everyone and it will make for a happy, healthy and energetic Bren XXX community.

Yeah, I never once said I was against the Bren 2.
You know they will be great.
But, I like the 1 for the reasons you just mentioned.
That's a great analogy.  I'm also a big fan of all steel pistols too.
Just like the old Smith's you mention and Sigs and CZ's.

Here's a question fellas.
After how many rounds do yall clean your Bren?
I do after every session. Which I usually fire no less than 60 rounds.
Usually I'll fire 120 rounds. Of course, I've only fired 340 rounds total.
Do yall clean after every session or just as an example after every hundred or couple hundred rounds?
Thanx!

I think it?s personal preference. I have had week long schools where I have shot 1K rounds thru a DI gun without cleaning, and without a single malfunction. So a piston gun such as the 805, you could probably go longer without issue. Again, is it a safe queen? Or a daily carry that your life depends on?Most people clean way more than what is necessary. Some people love cleaning their guns. I will clean the first few times after I get a new gun to get comfortable with disassembling the weapon.

Excellent. Thanx Joe.
I feel the same way. I like getting comfy with disassembling and reassembling.  I also like to clean it too. Most times anyways.
Thanx again Joe.

Let's put it this way - every time I clean the 805, I have to break out the manual to remember how to strip it down. And it always works.

Now, I have to break out a Brownells video when I clean my M1A Scout.
I dearly love that rifle, but she can be a pain to clean.

Is it pathetic to admit that I clean it even between shootings?  There has to be a 13 step program somewhere for Bren obsession.  Curse you CZ, I can't quit you.   ;D

405 rounds thus far. This thing is as smooth as silk and just gets better!
The addition of the Vortex Strikefire 2 has been soooooo much fun.
I can see putting thousands upon thousands more rounds thru this ole gal no problem.

Ah, the addiction is deep within this one...good, good...*rubs hands together*...gooooood.... ;D

Clean it whenever you want, best way to get to know the inner workings of the rifle, really. Mine just runs so well that I often forget, and will suddenly think, "wait, I just put another couple hundred rounds down range, when was the last time I cleaned this rifle?"
This is usually when I can hear ever so faintly a highly enraged Czech Army Sergeant yelling at me. Fortunately I don't speak Czech so I ignore him...

Lol, well played!
But, yes, they run so darn good!  By far the smoothest running semi auto rifle I've ever shot. Which ain't saying much, but I gotta feelin the Bren may be the smoothest running semi auto period.
