805 BREN carbine: Which parts are US made?
« on: January 24, 2018, 04:09:09 PM »
I understand that the carbines are imported as pistols and put into rifle form state-side. Does anyone know what parts are being replaced for 922r compliance?

Never mind; found the following in CZ-usa’s site as a kit. Assuming this is what CZ-USA does to the pistols when they arrive to make them compliant rifles. I’m most curious about the 16” barrels. Are those US or original?

i believe the barrels are US made for right now, unless they import them with the rifle length barrels in the pistols.

That's exactly what I was hoping NOT to hear. CZ barrels are legendary; U.S. made barrels, not so much :(

I asked CZ for clarification - as manufacturers they might be able to import the barrels, as these are new production items, NOT military surplus or "parts kits" like Century was making the ROMAKs out of. Those have to use US made barrels. Also, I've fired a few US made rifle barrels over the years that were quite good. ;) My BREN seems to shoot quite straight for me, however, I am not legendary shooters, but the consensus seems to be quite accurate and reliable.

Answer from CZ - the BREN barrels are Czech made.
