CZ Bren 2 Extended Charging Handle

(15 customer reviews)


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Our Drop in Charging Handle for the CZ Bren 2 is extended in length by 3.5mm, and the height/width is increased 2.1mm. More importantly than the dimensional changes is HOW the geometry was changed. The factory charging handle assembly on the Bren is dynamic in that is engages several other components in the upper receiver. You might have noticed that the factory finger catch rotates such that when pulled to the rear, the rake of the finger catch goes to “zero” or even negative. Our charging handles are designed with a more positive rake while in battery, and when operated, our finger catch never pulls into a negative rake. In addition to this, we have also added an aggressive hook to tip of the finger catch that captures the operators finger.

Our Bren2 Extended Charging Handle is machined from 6061T6 aluminum then hard coat anodized to MIL-A-8625. Each charging handle is supplied with replacement roll pins and a taper dowel pin to aid in installation.

    Just big enough to give you much appreciated real estate to engage the charging handle, especially if you’re running a red dot and magnifier. With the factory charging handle you would be jamming your knuckles against the optic and/or rail. With this, you’re able to move your hand away from the body of the rifle just enough to clear them.

    Extremely easy to install.

    Very high quality, no tool marks or rough edges.

    The red version is a very metallic red that looks great against the jet black color of the Bren 2.

    Love the look of this in red on the Bren 2. compliments the selectors very nicely. Feels better also.

    Easy to install. Very small difference in size over the original but somehow makes a big difference. Bought this because I like the charging handle on the left and the mount for my optic sticks out slightly on the left. The original would catch my knuckle slightly. The geometry on this changes the position of the hand so it doesn’t catch the optic mount. Oh and the best part, they don’t rip you off on shipping. I’m going to order another one for my other Bren 2. Nice job guys!

    This charging handle is an solid improvement when it comes to ergonomics, look and feel.

    The install was easy and went without a hitch for me. I didn’t even know that they had a video tutorial for it. I used an AR armorer’s block combined with a roll pin punch and a light hammer. The included taper pin was very helpful in keeping things aligned when punching in the fresh roll pins. The included roll pins are higher quality than the CZ ones.

    Anyway, it’s another sweet Bren 2 upgrade from these guys that I can heartily recommend!

    Very easy install. Only marginally longer than the stock charging handle. Nice quality. Is it necessary? No. Is it nice? Yes.

    Good upgrade, especially when working around optics mounts. Adds a good geometry to the charging handle. Makes actuating the bolt a breeze. No complaints.

    Fantastic upgrade, super easy replacement, great video for changing it out, and while it is only slightly larger, it is a worthwhile purchase.

    A great upgrade for the Bren 2, provides for much better and easier way to cycle the firearm. Very install and looks great on the Bren

  9. Dre (verified owner)

    Very nice upgrade easy to install looking forward for more upgrades from the company!

    This was SO worth the $30. Easy to install and works better than I even imagined. If you are thinking about getting, take the leap of faith. But now I want more of their stuff, it’s a deep hole.

    Sooooo much better then stock, must have IMO.

  12. brightt (verified owner)

    good upgrade over the stock option.

  13. Zachary Mueller (verified owner)

    Bought both the red and black versions. Like others have said, not a massive difference between the two, but enough that I feel it’s worth it. They feel much better being metal over plastic. The machining is perfect, and for the money definitely worth it.

    Another 4 star till I fire the weapon. But what you get for the price This is a must for the bren 2 ms. Now if they could just come up with something that folds like the charging handle on B and T stuff does.

    Props to HB Industries. Bought this charging handle & the safety selector set on Tuesday & already received the package earlier today. Not bad from Arizona to Massachusetts in 2+ days. Awesome product too. Simple to install even though I marked up the top of the handle slightly pushing the pin back in after the new one was put on. Looks great in the Tungsten along with the safety selector switches. Just another way to dress up the beautiful sexy fantastic Bren 2 Ms rifle. If I decide to dress up my sexy rifle further, HB will certainly be in order to get more of my business. Great Job HB & the company sticker is sweet too!!!!
