CZ 805 BREN in either its A1 (14” barrel) or A2 (11” barrel ) configurations is an impressive rifle. The system has a monolithic rail with configurable side rails at the 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock position. Operating controls are fully ambidextrous and closely resemble the AR platform.  The BREN uses a gas piston operating system with operator adjustable gas settings. The rifle is specifically designed to switch between calibers, and even magazine systems easily. Removing the barrel/piston system involves 6 easily-accessible screws. Change the bolt-face and the rifle can shoot a range of different cartridges. The 5.56×45 and 7.62×39 are currently on contract but other calibers will probably follow. At the present time the CZ 805 BREN is only available in a selective fire configuration: single shot, 2 round burst and fully automatic.

As of this writing, there appears to be no “official” position on a BREN entry in the commercial market but we’ll have to wait for SHOT SHOW 2015 to refine that.

The CZ P-09, 19 +1,  9mm Parabellum introduced in 2013 is a polymer offering featuring CZ’s Omega DA/SA trigger.  It is available in three configuration; black frame with a threaded and extended barrel for suppressor use; Flat Dark Earth version with tritium night sights; and, the standard black polymer frame. The sights and sight radius of the P-09 make for very fast target acquisition. Very comfortable pistol with some very nice features like converting from a decocker to a manual safety. CZ introduced the CZ P-07  in 2014. It is essentially a compact version of the CZ P-09 that is also available in a .40 SW. Both the CZP-07 and P-09 are outstanding pistols and have received excellent reviews in the tactical media.
