New from Breda Company - B4 Series of Semi-Automatic Rifles

Breda is one of the oldest and most important Italian manufacturers of semi-automatic hunting rifles. She recently presented her next novelty at the IWA & OutdoorClassics 2014 exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany - a line of B4 semi-automatic rifles based on the AR-15.

Breda B4 will appeal to even the most demanding shooters due to its affordable price and high-quality AR-15 platform. The rifle used a free-hung handguard from the US manufacturer Midwest Industries, as well as polymer parts FAB Defense or Magpul. The lower and upper parts of the receiver are made in Italy using German blanks made according to strict specifications of Breda. Moving parts, including the valve and the feeder, are manufactured by the company itself. The 11.5- and 14.5- and 20-inch barrels are manufactured by Lothar Walther.

It is worth noting that the company’s management intends to acquire all the necessary technologies in order to start local production of the required components, except for fittings, which they will continue to import, as it is much cheaper and there are enough high-quality offers to satisfy the company's needs.

Breda engineers even developed flame arresters, which will begin production in the near future.

Breda B4 rifles will be available with 11.5 ", 14.5" and 20 "barrel lengths

The main feature of the Breda B4 rifle system is a self-adjusting venting mechanism, automatically leveling with respect to the free floating barrel. This eliminates many problems with Free-Float trunks on AR models.

Breda introduced three rifles with the designations B4-A, B4-C and B4-SE. The latter model uses the bull-pap barrel, which will appear on the international market in the near future. It is possible that the company will create a version of the rifle for the military, as well as law enforcement officers.

    We read the title: "New from the" Breda "company - series of semi-automatic rifles B4 »
    This is a weapon for the civilian market (+ private security companies and the police), such clones of M16 / AR-15 in the USA itself are "a dime a dozen".

    The oldest and most important Italian manufacturer, even the site is inactive winked

    I will supplement the author of the announcement.
    The Ernesto Breda campaign was founded in 1886 and was engaged in the production of locomotives and other railway equipment.
    Later, she began the production of aircraft and weapons.
    At the beginning of 90's it was disbanded, and new campaigns were created from its units:
    Breda Meccanica Bresciana - weapons campaign
    AnsaldoBreda - production of buses and railway equipment;
    Istituto Scientifico Breda - research.

    Did a fifth-grader write this article? What nonsense about the "free-hanging fore-end", "self-regulating gas vent mechanism that automatically aligns with the free floating barrel" and "Bullpup barrel". Where does the site administration look? How can such crap be allowed to be published on such a serious information resource?

    The article is a victim of Google translation ... It is necessary, however, to edit the text from time to time. And so - a clone as a clone. Unless the trunks of Lothar Walther.
