What Is A CZ Bren 2?

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

CZ has updated the original Bren 805 and made a lot of internal and external improvements to the platform. They currently offer this weapon in a pistol configuration and a carbine configuration.

The 805 Bren was designed to a specific set of requirements set out by the Czech military, the Bren 2 is a clean-sheet design. With a bevy of changes, the most noticeable is sure to be the strict weight-loss regimen that the Bren 2 has undergone.

With a trimmed-down aluminum receiver and a lower made from carbon fiber-reinforced polymer, the result is a robust but substantially lighter gun.

Gone is the reciprocating charging handle, replaced with one that stays stowed in the forward position until it is needed.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

Swappable from side to side, it does double duty as a forward assist. Also added is an AR-style bolt catch/release system that is mirrored on both sides of the firearm, as well as a catch/release nestled into the front of the trigger guard.

The magazine release and safety are also ambidextrous and located in very familiar locations for anyone versed in the AR platform.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

Chambered in 223 and 7.62×39, each is available in several barrel lengths. AR-15 style magazines are used for 223 variants, whereas in 7.62, the factory’s magazines ensure last-round hold-open and consistent feeding.

All variants are swappable to different barrel lengths and chamberings and also feature a modular forend that can be swapped to different lengths.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

In pistol form, the Bren 2 Ms comes with a flush rear plate that has the provision for attaching an AR-style buffer tube for the installation of an arm brace, cheek rest, or similar pistol stabilizing device.

For those who wish to SBR, a Carbine buffer tube and stock can be installed, or the entire rear plate can be removed and replaced with a factory folding/adjustable stock.

Where To Purchase A CZ Bren 2?

If you do not already own a CZ Bren 2, your best chance is to find one online. Every gun store in my area has not had any of these in stock, but your location may differ.

Ordering one online and sending it to your local FFL is the easiest way to pick up one of these awesome guns. Here is a link to the CZ Bren 2 if you want to order one.

Best CZ Bren 2 Stock & Adaptor

If you are starting out with the pistol version and want to legally SBR it, you will be able to add a stock.

Make sure you follow all of your area’s federal and state laws and your SBR stamp and paperwork are approved before adding a stock.

Or, if you don’t like the stock that comes on the CZ Bren 2 carbine version, you can always swap it out.

A3 Tactical Rear Stock Adapter

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The A3 Tactical Rear Stock Adapter for the CZ Bren 2 will allow you to add a folding stock system to your gun.

It comes in a two-pin version and a Picatinny rail version, so make sure they are compatible depending on what stock you want.

Machined from 6061 T6 aluminum and hard anodized, this rear stock adapter replaces the original end plate on your CZ Bren 2.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

This adapter allows the use of our modular line of stocks and can also be configured with the Picatinny rail to adapt any side folding stock (or arm brace) designed for use on Picatinny mounts.image

The bolt pattern and locating lug on the rear of the adapter provide a positive modular mounting platform for a wide variety of currently available stocks and any future A3 Tactical stocks currently in development.

A3 Tactical Skelestock Skeleton Stock

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The A3 Tactical Skelestocks are fixed-length skeleton stocks machined completely from 6061 aluminum.

They are available in two lengths: 9.50in and 11.00in. They are also available with three different hinge options. The hinges fold right or left depending on how you mount the hinge. See hinge details below.image

Each stock comes with a 1/2in polymer cheek rest, 90 durometer Neoprene buttpad, and one steel, full rotation QD lug that can attach in 2 different locations on the right or left of the stock.

Best CZ Bren 2 Foregrip

There are a bunch of different options for a foregrip, and a lot of it comes down to personal preference.

I like using and recommend angled foregrips compared to vertical foregrips. I think they are more comfortable and make more sense to have a proper shooting stance and grip with your none dominant hand.

A3 Tactical CZ Bren 2 MS Angled Foregrip

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The A3 Tactical Angled Foregrip is a direct bolt-on AFG for the OE handguard on the Bren 2 MS pistols.

CZ designed the OE handguards with only one small M-LOK slot making it very difficult to install a universal angled foregrip.

Additionally, the rail surface is uneven, requiring a stepped surface for mounting. We utilized one M-LOK nut and one rail screw to retain our foregrip.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

Easy 10-minute install with supplied wrenches and hardware. Manufactured from MJF Polymer.

Best CZ Bren 2 Optics

This very capable platform can be used in many different scenarios. I recommend using a red dot sight if you plan on using this primarily as a home defense gun.

If you want more of a “do it all” gun, then adding a low power variable optic (LPVO) is what I recommend. Regardless of what you decide, all of the optics I list are of great quality and will work great on the CZ Bren 2.

Choosing between them depends on personal preference and the intended purpose for which you want the CZ Bren 2 to be used.

Best CZ Bren 2 Red Dot

If you want the fastest sighting option, then a red dot is the way to go. They are quick and allow you to threat focus/target focus instead of focusing on the front sight like you would on traditional iron sights.

If you want some magnification to be added to your red dot, then a magnifier is a great option and gives you the best of both worlds.

There are three primary red dots that I recommend.

  1. Aimpoint Pro
  2. Trijicon MRO HD
  3. EOTech EXPS3

Aimpoint Pro

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

One of the best possible red dots that you can get for the CZ Bren 2 is the Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic or the Aimpoint Pro for short. This 30mm red dot is insanely reliable and has an extremely long battery life.

The high-efficiency circuitry built into them gives you three years of constant illumination on a single battery. It is nice because you can just leave the optic on, and it is always ready to go at a moment’s notice.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

It comes with a QRP2 mount that is integrated into the red dot that will attach to your Picatinny rail and can be securely mounted without any special tools. Just tighten the knob by hand until you hear three clicks, and it’s good to go and will not shift your zero.

Flip-up lens covers are included, which will protect the glass.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The dot is a 2 MOA-sized dot that is very crisp with no distortion. A parallax-free scope is among the best in quality, durability, and reliability. It is also waterproof.

The Aimpoint Pro is night vision compatible, can also be used alongside a 3x magnifier, and performs very well.

Trijicon MRO with Magnifier

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

Another one of the best red dots for the CZ Bren 2 is the Trijicon Miniature Rifle Optic or Trijicon MRO for short. This is a reflex-style, sealed sight intended for use on rifles, carbines, and shotguns to provide fast target acquisition.

It is designed to be used with both eyes open, giving the operator maximum situational awareness. The large aperture and tapered light path maximize the viewing area in such a small optic, allowing for fast target engagement, especially from non-standard shooting positions.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

It also features ambidextrous brightness controls, sub-flush adjusters, advanced lens coatings, and a fully sealed, waterproof, hard anodized forged 7075-T6 housing, making the MRO the ultimate mini reflex sight.image

The MRO HD is optimized for use with a magnifier, with a re-engineered objective lens to produce a refined 2.0 MOA center dot surrounded by a 68 MOA segmented circle reticle. The ambidextrous reticle and brightness control allows the user to choose between a full reticle and a center dot.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The Trijicon Miniature Rifle Optic (MRO) HD Magnifier is a 3-power reflex optic magnifier specifically designed to magnify the target and target seen through the MRO HD red dot optic. By magnifying the target, the shooter can use the crisp dot in the MRO HD to quickly and accurately engage targets at extended distances.

The MRO HD Magnifier is short and compact, saving weight and rail space. The design features an easy-to-set flush, toolless adjusters that make centering the reticle in the field of view easy. The adjustable diopter allows the user to tune the optical performance of their eyes.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The 3x magnifier also includes a multi-position, military-grade flip-to-side quick-release levered mount, making mounting and unmounting the optic from the host platform quick and easy.

This mount is also designed to flip into place over the top of backup iron sights commonly used on modern sporting rifles. Each magnifier includes a riser plate and additional fasteners to allow the optic to align with either 1/3rd or Full Co-Witness MRO HD mounts.

EOTech EXPS3 with G33 Magnifier

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The EOTech EXPS3 w/ G33 Magnifier is the close-quarter tactical accessory for incredibly fast target acquisition capabilities, true heads-up display design, and versatile reticle adaptability.

These give you a true heads-up display that completely eliminates blind spots, reduces tunnel vision, and improves peripheral performance, and the EXPS3 allows you to target with both eyes open.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The reticle of the EO-Tech EXPS3 Holographic 1x Scope stays consistently visible with thirty different brightness settings, including ten settings optimized for night vision devices. When you don’t want to use the red dot sight’s reticle, the 7mm raised base allows you to use your iron sights. image

While the EPXS3 is a potent weapon sight, its 1x magnification limits your weapon’s range to close quarters. The EOTech HHS-1 Magnified Holographic Gun Sight rectifies that problem with the addition of an EOTech G33 Magnifier, which boosts the magnification rate of the EXPS3 by 3.25x.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The Magnifier has a wide field of view, maintaining the fast target acquisition capabilities of the standalone holographic sight even at 3.25x magnification.

The magnifier is attached to a Quick Switch to Side (STS) mount, which allows you to quickly switch between 1x and 3.25x magnification by moving the magnifier to the side and back again.

Best CZ Bren 2 LPVO

LPVO scopes are becoming very popular, and even the U.S. Army has started to issue them on their new rifles. They are a great option if you want a good rounds rifle that can engage targets to close but also reach out a little further.

They are still not as fast as a red dot at 1x but are still very quick. Remember that you will also need a good quality mount for a scope.

There are three LPVO scopes that I recommend for the CZ Bren 2.

  1. Vortex Razor Gen II-E 
  2. Sig Sauer Tango 6T 
  3. NightForce NX8 

Vortex Razor Gen II-E 1-6x24mm Rifle Scope

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

One of the best overall LPVO scopes and my go-to is the Vortex Razor Gen II-E. It has all of the features you want, is of great quality, and is reasonably priced.

The clarity, color accuracy, resolution, and eye relief are outstanding and are truly a high-end scope.

The Vortex Razor HD Gen II is an ultra-sleek design built like a tank. The Gen II-E is packed full of unique features and is overbuilt.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

This scope is well thought out and has everything you need in an LPVO. It truly is a premium optic and works flawlessly.

The scope is designed on a single-piece tube that maximizes alignment for improved accuracy and optimum visual performance and ensures strength and waterproofness.

The second focal plane reticle scale maintains the same sized appearance. Listed reticle subtensions can be used for estimating range, holdover, and wind drift correction are accurate at the highest magnification.

Sig Sauer Tango 6T 1-6x24mm Rifle Scope

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

These are made with HDX optics extra-low dispersion glass paired with high transmittance glass to create the brightest and most vivid sight pictures for your shooting needs.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The illuminated reticle and fast focus eyepiece allow you to acquire targets quicker than ever, and the reticles are also glass-etched in case you run out of power.

Night Force NX8 1-8x24mm Rifle Scope

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The Night Force NX8 is the perfect scope for short to mid-range missions that require superior optics with minimal weight and size. It is a 30mm tube with a 1-8x range for magnification.

This is a premium optic and one of the top LPVO scopes on the market.

These feature a revolutionary center dot that is visible in the daylight for rapid target acquisition and engagement, and the built-in power throw lever aids in fast magnification changes.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

The Night Force NX8 1-8x24mm Illuminated Rifle Scope is built from top-quality materials and constructed with a 30mm body tube for superior strength and durability.

The glass clarity is out of this world and provides a very bright, clear, and crisp image. The eyebox is the most generous I have seen from any other LPVO. When zooming in and out, the focus and image remain clear.

Best CZ Bren 2 Scope Mount

Once you decide on a scope, you will need a solid way to mount it on your CZ Bren 2. Just make sure that you get the proper ring size. In most cases, it will be either a 30mm or 34mm tube size.

Geissele Super Precision Scope Mount

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

One of the best scope mounts that I recommend is the Geissele Super Precision Scope Mount. This is my go-to mount for all of my scopes and is truly the best on the market.

It will hold zero and stand up to the recoil of firing without any issues. These are very well-made and precise, so no lapping is needed for the rings.

These mounts are available in either 30mm or 34mm tube diameter, as well as a variety of lengths, including standard, extended, and hyperextended. This allows you to get the perfect length for your chosen scope, ensuring it fits on your rifle easily.

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

While these scope mounts use the classic nut and bolt method for clamping to the Picatinny rail. This means they are more secure, as each nut and bolt combination provides 1,400 pounds of clamping force, which is more than any lever mounting arrangement.

It also spans 7 Picatinny sections and uses four shear lugs to ensure the scope stays steady and zeroed even after repeated firing.

Best CZ Bren 2 Light

For any serious battle rifle or self-defense gun, you need a good weapon light. It needs to be reliable and bright.

There are a lot of good options on the market nowadays for weapon lights, but I always go back to the tried and true one.

SureFire M600 Ultra Scout Light

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

Being able to identify your target and crucial, and if it’s dark, you will need a weapon light.

The Surefire M600 is my go-to for this. It is bright, reliable, and has the option to add a tape switch with a pressure pad for momentary on and off.

These have been around a while and are still trusted as one of the best weapon lights.

Click here to check the current prices of the Surefire M600

Tail Cap Pressure Pad

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

They make a Tail Cap Pressure Pad with a button on it, which will let you have a constant on and off button.

With this switch, you can have the most efficient ergonomic light setup and will not have to move your hand to activate it. This will stop you from breaking your shooting grip.

Click here to check the current prices of the Tail Cap Pressure Pad

Arisaka Defense Inline Scout Mount

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

I mount this on my handguard using the Arisaka Defense Inline Scout Mount. It’s slim and rock solid.

It takes up minimal rail space and is MLOK, so you can easily attach the Surefire M600 to the CZ Bren 2.

Cloud Defensive LCS Mount

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

I have the tape switch running to a Cloud Defensive LCS Mount that works absolutely great. I am super happy with this setup and believe it’s the best solution for mounting a weapon light with a pressure pad.

Having a good weapon light on a rifle is one of my favorite CZ Bren 2 upgrades and accessories.

Best CZ Bren 2 Sling

You need a sling to secure your rifle to your body, and if you plan on doing any serious tactical or running and gunning.

Personally, I recommend a good two-point sling for a rifle like the CZ Bren 2. It is the best option and will allow you to transition to a pistol smoothly.

Blue Force Gear Vickers Padded Sling

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

 

One of the best slings I have ever used is the Blue Force Gear Vickers Sling. It is the best quality sling that is the most functional.

This QD version has push-button attachments that make switching mount points or even rifles quick and easy.

A pull tab allows you to tighten or loosen the sling on the fly quickly.

They make this sling in a few different colors and camo patterns, and the quality is top-notch. This sling is durable and rugged and will last very long.

If you still do not own a good quality sling, then now is a good time to make the investment and pick one up.

Best CZ Bren 2 Magazines

Having extra magazines is a must for any rifle. The good thing about the CZ Bren 2 is that it takes standard AR-15 style mags.

Magpul PMAG Gen 3 w/ Window

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

I personally like using the Magpul PMAGs Gen 3 with the window.

These magazines are very consistent and fit into mag wells perfectly. They feed reliably and are fairly priced. (Even in today’s market)

I also like to stock up on PMAGs when I can.

Best CZ Bren 2 Ammo

Best CZ Bren 2 Upgrades & Accessories

You will always need more ammo, and with prices at a high, the best idea is to better it whenever you see a sale or buy in bulk.

5.56mm is pretty common and the same as 7.62x39mm, so it’s normally easy to find.

Be sure to click the links and check the current prices and availability of the ammo because prices always change.

  • 5.56mm
  • 7.62x39mm

Final Considerations

I have seen a few companies start to make aftermarket lower receivers for these guns. They are usually made of aluminum and will allow you to add your favorite AR-15 style of pistol grip and trigger group to the CZ Bren 2.

Before swapping out the lower receiver, make sure you have shot many rounds through the CZ Bren 2 and have enough trigger time to decide if this is something you want to upgrade.

I personally like and am used to the standard CZ Bren 2 lower receiver.

CZ Bren 2 FAQ

Is the CZ Bren 2 reliable?

The CZ Bren 2 is more reliable than the original version and has been focused on reducing weight and making it a lighter platform while still being reliable. Because of the short stroke piston design, it is better in adverse conditions and shooting suppressed.

Does the CZ Bren 2 take AR triggers?

Changing the lower receiver to an aftermarket one may accept AR triggers depending on which lower receiver you decide to purchase.

What military uses the CZ Bren 2?

In 2015 Czech Army began ordering CZ Bren 2. In 2020, a decision was made that Czech Army would use only CZ Bren 2 as a standard issue rifle within five years. Beginning in 2022, CZ Bren 2 PPS has been fielded as a designated marksman’s rifle, replacing the Dragunov SVD.

Does the CZ Bren 2 take AR mags?

The CZ Bren 2 Ms accepts standard AR magazines, which is great about this rifle; you do not need to purchase specific magazines.
