BRS99 Radom SBR/Pistol! (SHOT Show 2016)

At the Radom booth at SHOT 2016, we got a glimpse at a wonderful offering that will soon be imported to the United States in pistol form. This neat little gun fires 9mm from a closed bolt, and features an Uzi-style quick change barrel, collapsible stock, great sights, and varying magazine capacities.

    Shot the full-auto military version in Poland last year. Called the PM85 Glauberyt if I remember correctly. It had quite a lot of movement in the bolt compared to say the MP5. Not sure I´d compare the two. Maybe an UZI is a better comparison.

    • The Uzi might be more comparable the the RAK63. The BRS and its select fire brothers are closed bolt.
      Still though, I see what you are saying.

      • plingr2

        I think that comparison BRS99 and uzi is perfect. Rak 63 is more like giant automatic pistol. In Czech Republic, you can buy BRS 99 for 1250$, RAK will cost you 230$. But I thing more people will buy UZI for 450$, so they can save money on ammo (9×19 is cheapest here). (Sorry for bad english)

        • plingr2

          UZI could be upgradet to firing from close bolt. (For 250$)

          • I think a closed bolt uzi and the BRS99 are comparable. It would be awesome if we could put them both to the test in the future!

        • De Facto

          Thanks for the input; also, your English is perfectly understandable. Most readers on TFB like hearing gun perspectives from outside the US, so don’t be afraid to chime in!

          I want a full auto RAK so bad 🙁

        • iksnilol

          To be honest, RAK seems more interesting than BRS to me.

    • BrandonAKsALot

      Roller delayed blowback vs direct blowback can make for a big difference in the feel of the action cycling.

  • Riot

    Looking forward to it

  • Dracon1201

    Oh, that is cool.

    Radom, SET UP IN THE US ALREADY.

    THEN PROMPTLY SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.

  • USMC03Vet

    New guns are always great, but that pistol grip looks about as terrible as if somebody just put a wooden 2×4 in it’s place.

    • BearSlayer338

      Probably still more comfortable than a glock.

    • Rusty S.

      It was actually quite comfortable.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Pfft… 2016… Who needs bolt hold open anyhow!?

    • God damn dude, you are queen of the negative nancys.

      • Laxguy59

        He literally lives on this site and thinks we all await his judgement of every item the blog reviews.

    • De Facto

      Means less opportunity for crud to get into the chamber.

    • VolkCNC

      Are you confusing a closed bolt action with not having a last round bolt hold open? I can assure you, my BRS99 has a nice big external bolt release and last round hold open.

  • Jeremy

    Looks more like a baby of of the Uzi and an Veresk SR-2

  • VolkCNC

    We’ve had the BRS99 in Canada for a number of years, I’ve personally had one for around 6 months. Great little sub gun, very accurate. The comparison to the Uzi is valid as Uziel Gal helped in the design of the PM68. Hopefully they will have a good presence in the US so we can start getting magazines up here. They are incredibly hard to find.

  • Anomanom

    Sounded like someone behind the camera was blowing a raspberry at the end.

  • Unlicensed Dremel

    You’re kidding right? As a pistol, it’s less than useless relative to a regular pistol (glorified tec-9), and as an SBR carbine, it’s OK, but certainly way short of say, a 9mm AR15.
