Bren 805 upgrades or other input
« on: October 21, 2019, 07:55:03 PM »
My first post here! So I’m picking up a basically brand new Bren 805 carbine next week, just wondering what upgrades or add ons you guys would recommend? Thanks!

ALL of them.   8)

I went M-lok (from KNS) all over my pistol.  A good red dot, & a good sling (factory mounts are kinda funky.  HK clips work best, but even then, they can still bind) are definite requirements.  I also changed the charging handle to a KNS knurled model.

I also went with a Magpul handstop.  In the pistol configuration at least, the lower the profile grip/handstop, the better.
  I also added an INFORCE WML light to mine.  And Troy sights.

Like I said - "ALL of them!"   ;D

Thanks for the reply! So this is probably a dumb question, but is the handguard removable on the Bren?

Sorry, yes. I’m wondering if the pic rails come off. And if so, what kind of attachment system is underneath

Yes, that rail comes off, but you're gonna need SOME sorta rail down there, because it ties the magwell to the frame!  I went with the KNS M-lok rail, as I attached the Magpul handstop there.  It's also pretty smooth, so if you wanted nothing at all, that would be a good choice also.

Finally got my 805 carbine out to the range today. She shot like a champ! The action on these rifles is like glass.

Even the pistol is a smooth shooter, thanks to the heft of the gun.  Not sure about the carbine length action, but DEFINITELY wear gloves when shooting the pistol.  It warms up in short order!
