Meopta Optics For the CZ Bren 805

Meopta has a couple optics that are not available in the US at the moment. No idea if Meopta USA will be carrying them but they look cool.

First up is the ZD-Dot. According to their website:

ZD-Dot red dot sight is a ruggedized and shock-proof tool suitable for any automatic rifle. Electronic regulation of the red dot intensity allows 10 intensity levels for day and night. Enhanced optical parameters eliminate reflection, astigmatism and both vertical and horizontal parallax. The unit is powered by one AA battery.


The Meopta catalog says the ZD-Dot can use any AA battery within the volt range of 1.2 – 3.6v. I find that very interesting. In some of my flashlights, I use Li-Ion rechargeables called 14500s. The 14500 is a rechargeable AA sized battery but puts out 3.6v. Your run of the mill disposable li-ion Energizer AAs are still just 1.5v.




Meopta also makes a magnifier called the DV-Mag 3. It works in concert with the ZD-Dot or the M-RAD red dot. The Scorpion EVO 3, that I shot last week, had the M-RAD on it.




Here they are combined on a CZ BREN.

    The sight looks like a Redfield Counterstrike with the Lazer on the side.

    MUST… HAVE…805 Bren… Basically a cool looking SCAR with decent stock and interchangeable mag well.

    • John

      Except the 5.56 CZ-805 weighs more than a .308 SCAR-H

      • Nicholas C

        Not really. I have a SCAR17S and the Bren 805 that I shot, did not feel heavier.

        • John

          Loaded perhaps not, but with both rifles empty, they weigh in at 3.58kg and 3.6kg respectively (7.9 lbs).

          Regardless, the point I was trying to make is that the Bren 805 is really heavy for a carbine, as it weighs as much as a battle rifle. Its contemporaries weigh much lighter

          • Dave

            I blame the SCAR stock and its seemingly vacuum formed cheapness for the weight difference.

            Heavy for a 5.56 rifle? Yeah, a touch. But I’m a civilian, I’ve already got my go-to rifle for social work, heaven forbid. Variety is the spice of life, and I’d love to own and shoot one of these for the fun of it.


    While I’m not too interested in the rifle, the CZ 805 G1 is a thing of true beauty. The swivel of the tube instead of the extending found in M203s and others is such a great feature.

    I still have a lot of love for the prototype of the Remington ACR’s GL, which was also a swivel design, and the aesthetics and shape looked very nice.

    Recommend stay with either ACOG or AIMPOINT this looks heavy and bulky.
