Your are right mikec. They should never have put an item up in their catelogs and website without it being released first or coming with a couple weeks. That is really bad marketing. But then, CZ was never known for savvy marketing or good customer relations. Its just that their products happen to be built great for their price category and market themselves.

That being said, the American customer even though happy, will still suck up to them whenever they are released as long as the product is of a base minimum quality.

I hate to say it, but I have moved on. Love the design and ergonomics. But as a company and how they have handled the release vs availability. Forget it. Rather put my money into a company that stands behind a product than be, "behind in production and service".

Come on everybody,

This won't be the last time a product has been released late to market.  Might I remind you that Microsoft notoriously stopped naming their Windows OS releases after years because they kept missing them. 

Looks like Bren 2 actually meant Bren 2020  ;D

Remember the Sig MPX?  LWRC SMG-45?   Even Magpul Masada eventually made it to market (even as a Bushmaster).  Just frustrating to wait year after year.

If those 300 Bren 2’s did not make it to US shores last year, I think our frustration wouldn’t be as bad.  Are we as frustrated with them not releasing the Bren 2 BR?  We also waited a year or two for the Shadow 2 Orange, didn’t we?

HI!

Does anyone here knows what is the rifling of the Bren 2 rifle in 5.56mm? Also the rifling in the Bren 2 BR (7.62x51mm)? is there any other barrel size for the Bren 2 BR besides the 16"? Last: length for both rifles, Bren 2 in 14" and BR in 16" barrel, with extended stock and folded stock?

Thanks if somebody can help me!

My Bren 2MS 8” (5.56) pistol is finally shipping. Will be here Friday then the 10 day waiting period that WA State now has. Well I waited this long, so I guess a few more days won’t hurt. At least I can look at it while I fill out my transfer paperwork.

When I was in Afghanistan I met some Czech professional badasses with 11.5" Bren 2's. I held one (of the rifles... not the soldiers), and I told the "owner" when I got back to America I was def going to buy one.

Then I come back to America and alas, my plans are thwarted.

Nont yet, Doc, the pistols are finally shipping in, slowly, but they are coming in. Rifles/carbines, I have no info at all.

My LGS received their first B2 5.56 Pistol today, so here they come fellas! May try to run down in the morning and Czech it out in the flesh.
I’ve got a few CZ’s...

It’s an 8” model, no brace. Dodged a bullet there, had it been an 11” with a brace I’d have been in deep doodoo with the wifey  ;D

May hold out for a carbine (until an 11 w/brace shows up, and I change my tune on a dime)

I have a Saint Victor Pistol already in 7.5”, and it’s the cats behind. Absolutely LOVE that pistol. I’ll hold out.

8 inch 5.56 on Gunbroker for less than MRSP by a dealer around my zone.
Dang!  CZ really dropped the ball with that new handguard crap. Now I see why folks dropped big $$$ for the military version
