The stock looks way too low to use the irons.

Gentleman I believe they will be making something similar to the KDG Mrex rail for the scar. It replaces the bottom and side rails with one piece and allows for attachment of Mlok rails or accessories.



And here it is on my scar 17

Now that needs to be made for the Bren for sure. Since using my 13" rail on my AR I don't like the shorter rails.

Even carbine length AR handguards are too short for me.  I find that lengthing the stock helps w/ comfort and works so long as using red dots and such w/ no eye relief considerations...
Even then, the AFG and an GoGun Rifle Gas Pedal combo is the most comfortable handhold I've found w/ shorter handguards... 
Combined, doing both, it takes a fair bit of stress off the wrist and elbow.

Hi Sven,
Any updated ETA on the Bren 805 M-LOK Forend? What about MSRP and weight?

Thanks

The product is going through some changes. I would expect it out late this year at this point.

Please make a better selector lever than the one CZ makes :)

I guess I'll add to the wish list...  a QD socket (both sides) rear sling loop plate replacement...

I am listening guys, and thanks for the input!  Seems you guys are seeing the same things I am on the gun.  A great base gun, but we can make it even better!  ;)

Based on some opportunities the stock and forend we originally showed have gone through some design changes, and we hope to have both out late this year.

If they sell well we will look into safety levers, bolt release, etc to really bump this gun up to the next level.    :)

I used an acr stock on mine.

Kns charging handle because it was the only thing available.

I like the stock fore end.

But a bolt release....   I think 60-70 percent of 805 owners would buy that regardless of how other things sell.

I second this, I hate that I can't engage the safety without have my hand in an awkward position on the grip. Engage with thumb and back on safety with the index.
