Czech military gets new rifles: CZ 805 BREN

The Czech Republic's military forces are being equipped with new assault rifles from a local manufacturer starting in July.The weapon is the CZ 805 BREN made by Ceska zbrojovka...The Czech Ministry of Defense said the rifle comes in two variants -- long barrel and short barrel -- and replaces the 7.62mm vz. 58, in use by Czechoslovak and Czech militaries for more than 50 years...Both 7.62 x 39mm and NATO standard 5.56 x 45mm cartridges can be used....

C.Z. has long had a reputation for making quality firearms (In fact, that was the main reason Hitler wanted to invade the country in WW2, to take over the arms factories). This new BREN will likely be an excellent weapon (S9)
