its a copy of the FN-scar. same old stoner bolt in a g-36 clone carrier in a one piece upper with synthetic stantag lower.
all part of firearms evolution, copy the best bits off other designs and put them together to suit your own manufacturing machinery and requirements.

clever of them to cash in on the BREN name and fame though.

Follow the Youtube link to the where some fat bloke demonstrates stuff like the 40mm and the suppressor. Then wonder why a second world country like Czech can produce a gat 10 times better than the Shit80.

That sir is a ******* LMG, get a grip (OK probably a BREN modded to take 7.62 but not in the UK, that still makes it a LMG in my book)

Mine had 'BREN 1942' crossed out and 'LMG 195?' written underneath

Johnson's bolt; Stoner did the direct gas impingement bit. Hence Armalite could still use the bolt in the AR-18, with a gas piston, after selling the AR-15 rights to Colt. The bolt's patents were long expired and every man and his dog could use it without paying royalties.

Ain't that the truth. You'd be stupid not to.
The word 'best' is open to creative interpretation, though. In some cases, best = cheapest.

yep, stoner got the idea from Johnson, when i say 'stoner bolt' i mean the way everyone since has copied stoners dimensions and camming system in the carrier almost millimeter for micrometer.

and the gas impingment system was nothing new,

Looks suspiciously like a Bren to me ... straight mag, sights with the wheel to adjust ...

shouldnt it be the BAECZ and cost £9000 ea?

the czechs do know how to make guns though. I know when they joined nato they didnt upgrade because their own soviet era kit was more than up to the tasks at hand.

hopefully we can get some decent kit soon but I wont hold my breath

hint* have a close look at the mag, its not the 30rd lmg mag, and its not in 7.62mm ;)

the 7.62mm LMG's were made from later model BRENS without dial sights,

the british did make a few in other calibers to try out and try and sell for export.

Thing is the bods on high have decided that weapons like the SLR and the Bren and various other bits of kit are too deadly. Therefore it would look bad as its un-pc if we were all issued with weapons designed for a conflict between powers.

But I've heard stories from guys who have fired the Bren and they were ordered not to use full auto as it would put the rounds through the same hole in the target

bit of an urban gun myth i'm afraid, the BREN was accurate (compered to other LMG type gats) but not a lazer lol.

and 7.62mm is making a comeback (thank god!), search L129a1.

I thought the bren was de accurised under the geneva people for being too accurate due to the bipod?
