I haven't had a chance to handle one, so I don't know if the forearm is that bad. I would bet that a better one comes or Manticore will produce one double quick. I also think that the delay had nothing to do with CZ-USA.

The MS handguards will be a good thing for 16" bbl carbines once longer handguards are available. Also, at least the M-lok slot is flush and not recessed.

I don't like the way the M-lok slots are recessed on the Bren2S that made it into the US. The short handguard area of this configuration really require goose-neck mounts for lights or IR lasers and the step up from the M-lok slot to the front screw blocks using an an M-lok mount. I'll probably have to mount a section of 1913 and put a light mount on that. I'd have been better off if my Bren 2 had just come with the 1913 rails instead, as then I'd be able to get the light/laser mounted farther forward. It's a shame the M-lok rails can't be flipped insode out so that M-lok mounts could get past the front screw.

I saw and a handled BREN 2 the shop last night (8 inch 5.56), it was really, really nice. Great trigger, I don't think I'd try to improve it. The handguard was totally fine, I don't see what the issue is? I'll wait for an 11 inch, but I'm really happy I finally got to see a BREN 2 up close and personal.

They have been out there. 2 months ago my LGS had an 11” for sale. Did not stay on the wall long.

In case someone has been thinking of getting the Bren 2MS in 5.56, the 8" and 11" pistols at Gunbroker are getting below what I paid for my Bren 2S in Sept 2018.

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.
Bummer, mine were not. Lol!
