Bren 2 Carbine is out.
« on: January 23, 2020, 11:20:00 PM »
CZ at the Shot Shot today announced the long awaited Bren 2 806 Carbine is finally out and will be in stores soon. I can't wait to get my hands on one.

No such thing as an 806

appears to be 806 and 807:

From the article....

Quote
Lighter and more versatile than the BREN A1/A2 system, the BREN 2 weapon system includes two modular assault rifles – the 5.56x45mm CZ 806 model and the 7.62x39mm CZ 807 model. Oddly enough, among these two, the latter was adopted in 2017 by the special intervention group of the French National Gendarmerie (GIGN) due to the higher performance of the former-ComBloc 7.62mm caliber in urban environments.

I mean, did you bother to click on those links? Because they don't work. Because there's no such thing as an 806 (or 807). But thanks for using a significantly out of date article to try to correct me

What we know publicly as the Bren 2 and Bren 2 MS was originally called the Bren 806 and is still internally referred to as such by CZ.  Heck, all their parts files names refer to it as that.  I held the Bren 806 at the CZ USAtwo days after it came into country.

The argument is pedantic.  The Bren 806 and Bren 2 (and 2 MS save for a forend change and lack of a cosmetic relief on the side) are the same gun.

Don't hold your breath while you're waiting. The video that I watched from Shot Show only said that it will be out some time this year.  We all know how CZ likes to announce a new product but takes forever have it widely available.

Don't get me wrong, it's great news, but if the past is any indication, it won't be out any time soon.

Bren 2 was labeled Bren 806 in CZ's old catalog. Just FYI.

It showed a Bren 2 with "806" on the side instead of Bren 2. Not sure if that was an actual receiver marking or just a photoshop that CZ had done.

Sit tight bud.  Its going to be a while.

I would say realistically, on the extremely optimistic side we may see them by June/July.

My money says the end of the year but I hope to be surprised.

Heck I'm still waiting for a proper release of the freakin pistols. They released what was it, 300 of them last year? This most recent batch didn't include any 5.56 11 inchers... which is frankly just dumb considering that's probably the go to length for most. Plenty of 8 inchers and 14 inchers though, and a few 11 inch 7.62x39's.

I see tons of pistols on Gun Broker. Maybe they arent cheap, but thats Supply/Demand/Equilibrium.
