Bren 2 MS Carbine SBR
« on: April 28, 2021, 01:19:06 PM »
I picked up a Bren 2 MS Carbine recently for a great price from a guy who needed some cash.  I'm an 07/02 FFL and have plenty of experience cutting/threading barrels and have no problem with the gas port tuning.  I have yet to find anyone who has cut down a carbine though and was wondering if anyone has seen one done.  The gas system on the carbine is obviously a lot longer than the pistol variants and I'm trying to see if I can get away with going to 11-12" without it not having enough gas to run.

Thanks

Dan

Got it cut down today. Runs like a champ. Pictures are giving me trouble.

Edit, fixed the huge photo width.

looks good but there is something i dont fully get, you cut it a few days ago and it is a SBR already? like that is the fastest stamp approval i have ever seen.

The suppressor is a Griffin M4SD-K

Irons are Knight's Armament

As for the timeline, as stated in the original post I'm an 07/02 FFL (manufacturer of firearms other than destructive device) so when I make an NFA item I can do all the R&D work I need to and then file the Form 2 once it's complete.

Oh and my HBI Parts came in this weekend so I installed the trigger, sear, selector levers and charging handle.  Trigger is A+ would recommend for the first upgrade to anyone!  Oversized controls are nice too but functionally the trigger is huge.
