Need help, Bren 2Ms fail to feed.
« on: October 12, 2019, 10:36:33 AM »
Hey everyone, I’m having an issue with my new Bren2Ms.  I took it to the range for the first time and had about 8-10 failures to feed.  The Bren has the 11” barrel and is chambered in 223/5.56.  Gas block was in the normal position 1.  I was using the cz mags that came with the firearm and shooting American eagle 223 Rem 55 grain FMJ boat-tail ammo.  I have heard the Brens reputation for being rock solid as far as reliability so was shocked when this was happening.  Any guidance would be appreciated.

That’s a bit disappointing!  Did you try Magpul or standard aluminum magazines?

I haven’t, just the cz mags so far.

Did you contact CZ-USA?  Failures to feed looked like what?  Deformed casings or bullets?  Bolt did not fully lock up?  What?  Any pictures?

I'd try some different ammo & mags, and see what happens.  If you're still getting FTF's, THEN contact CZ.

First things first call CZ-USA and let them know. Second, what kind of FTF, nose up, bolt riding over the round in the mag?

I had heard the reason why the Bren 2 Ms has been sent over here in mass yet is because of quality control problems. I forget who said it but it was a somewhat reliable resource. The source also said they have some military contracts to fulfill as well and that's also taking a toll on the US market.

What “quality issues” if they are supplying quantities to the military?  Seems unlikely.

I call BS on the quality control (QC) issues. If there was some major QC issues then none would have been shipped out. The reason there has been small numbers is just supply and demand.

Yeah those are just two rumors I’ve heard. I don’t know if any of them can be substantiated. I find it odd though that it’s taken so long to get into the states, especially since the first 300 were here well over a year ago.

The 300 were approved by ATFE - they may have not approved the MS version quickly enough, plus I do know the factory IS filling military contracts worldwide. Perhaps when the new factory goes fully online they will produce the MS pistol and rifle here in the US.  8)

That’s a good reminder the early shipments were pistol-based. The pistol versions are mostly a US market item as one wouldn’t normally find them offered in say, the home market, where there’s not that 16” minimum thing.

The original poster claimed a problem (failures to feed).  Month later we don’t know whether he followed up with CZ USA or if/how he resolved the problem.  Useless.
