I think there was more than design issues that killed off the Bren.EAA has the worst possible customer service attitude and the 10mm they built was their worst gun ever. I have yet to see one that works very well and they sold a lot of them up here initially. Nobody carries them around here anymore because of their quality control. It's basically a CZ design and everyone who has tried to beef it up to take a bigger bullet has failed miserably. Look at what happened to the Bren 10.
It's still gone and subsequent attempts by multiple other companies have failed, even when employing the originals designers to trouble shoot. Flawed design. The 10mm cartridge deserves a purpose built platform some day.I think there was more than design issues that killed off the Bren.
Bren's magazine dies were sold when the mag maker went bankrupt making it almost impossible to get mags, adding "features" such as the firing pin block safety that would break, selling guns without mags, taking orders for guns that hadn't been made yet.
It was more than just upscaling the CZ that killed the Bren off.
The CZ-97 runs great as long as SWC bullets are not used, it doesn't like to feed them. It's built like a tank and is a very good piece, I'd like to see a 10mm version of it.
I think the Glock 20 and 29 fit that bill.It's still gone and subsequent attempts by multiple other companies have failed, even when employing the originals designers to trouble shoot. Flawed design. The 10mm cartridge deserves a purpose built platform some day.
Sounds like limp wristing... 10mm is potent. And its not a revolver, dont 'rock with the recoil.' 10mm was the FBI round after 9mm failed- but too potent for skirts 'n sissies- so went to 40 s&w a shortened 10mm round.I have a EAA 10mm I bought if off a buddy who needed the cash. My biggest probelm was it jammed on me ALL the time. I tried different ammo - no luck. I found a Guy that handloads near me and I bought a couple boxes from him that functioned better in the gun. I don't know what was different with his handloads- maybe just luck.(I know nothing about handloading- yet) I tried different mags - no luck. I got it cheap which is good infact its been laying in the safe for quite awhile now. Wanna buy it?
