Developed in the 1920s, the ZB vz. 26 Light Machine gun is a gas-operated, air cooled, light weight, man portable squad support weapon. Primarily used by the Czechoslovakian military, the ZB vz. 26 design also saw service with various countries across Europe and Asia and has taken part in numerous conflicts including WW2 and the Korean War; sometimes used by both sides. Most famously, the ZB vz. 26 was adopted by Britain and then updated and redesigned into what is known as the Bren Gun.
Unlike other light machine guns of its time which were often belt fed, the ZB vz. 26 is unique in that it is a top loading magazine fed weapon. The advantage of this is that the overall weight of the gun is much lighter and the weapon was less prone to malfunctions caused by dirt and debris getting into the guns action.
The Matrix ZB vz. 26 is quite an accurate recreation of the weapon featuring a quick detach outer barrel and adjustable sights with oversized adjustment dial. The Matrix ZB vz. 26 features full metal construction which includes the receiver, barrel, sights, carry handle, and bipod along with imitation wood furniture including the grip, stock, and carry handle. The gun itself is a solid performer with reinforced metal internals and an impressive rate of fire right out of the box; the extra-long barrel also gives the gun quite a bit of reach and accuracy.
