I love SCAR’s, currently have a 16S and a 17S. Absolutely awesome rifles.
I’d love to have a factory 16S with a shorter barrel, such as an ~11”....
... so with that in mind, is anyone here familiar with the Czech SCAR, the CZ Bren...?
CZ offers factory Bren pistols with something like 8”, 12” and 14” barrels. Since the gun appears to run similarly, with almost identical ergonomics, it seems like a natural second choice behind a factory short SCAR.
Buying a short factory gun has some benefits over modifying a 16” 16S:
- Prevents having to have someone cut down a SCAR barrel
- Prevents having to SBR that short SCAR
- Simple to sell if FN was to later come out with a short SCAR
I’m just not sure of the true quality of the CZ, especially as compared to the SCAR.
I believe in FN, I think they make awesome equipment, superior quality of engineering and manufacture, and that nothing beats an FN. They just don’t sell a SCAR in the configuration that I’m looking for, so I’d definitely appreciate any knowledge that you guys can pass on with regard to CZ and the Bren, specifically.
CZ has Bren’s in military circulation which is great - but I don’t know how much of that is automatic (such as, the Czech military MUST use Czech weaponry) versus truly deserved.
