Bren gas ports?
« on: February 13, 2018, 08:25:38 PM »
I am currently thinking about the Bren gas system. They have a two gas setting but it’s for “normal” and adverse settings. They are both very large.

Anyone have a solution for a suppressed setting?

I see that you can buy new gas regulators from CZ USA now for $80.

Anyone know what sizes they are for the pistol vs the carbine? I believe the carbine is 1.0mm and 1.5mm.

I have been speaking with Black River Tactical and they put set screw gas ports in barrels to tune the gas system on AR’s. I am thinking about if they can do the same with the Bren.

I think you're going in the right direction. I don't have my Bren accessible right now but I thought about drilling a third hole and making a third notch to do suppressed. Doing a regulator with a set screw I would think could be manageable.

I do not have a Bren either but I don’t know about drilling a third hole. Doesn’t the gas regulator lock in position with a pin?

It does. You'd have to make a third cut out for the pin between the two existing ones that would line up with a third gas port.
