Based on the company's popular submachine gun, which has seen use with the U.S. Army and Air Force, the semi-auto-only B&T USA APC9 Limited platforms provide a compact, capable pistol-caliber carbine to the U.S. consumer market, albeit only in NFA-regulated short-barreled rifle configurations.

“The heart of the new APC9 Limited guns is our new fully ambidextrous aluminum lower receiver featuring a highly functional flared magazine well similar in size and shape to our popular jet-funnel accessory, yet formed directly into the receiver” said Chris Mudgett, vice president of marketing, B&T USA. “We hit the sweet spot with the 8.9" variant with its longer slick fore-end and MBT stock; this combination makes for an extremely fast-handling, lightweight, ergonomic platform whose fit can be so dialed in, it feels like a natural extension.”

The newly designed MBT stock is a folding, telescoping design, which makes the platform easily collapsible for transport and storage while also providing eight length-of-pull positions and three cheek-height settings for user fit. The ambidextrous controls provide an easily accessible magazine-release button located just forward of the trigger guard, while a safety selector is located above and to the rear of the trigger, akin to those found on AR-style rifles. At the top end of the gun is a folding, non-reciprocating charging handle that's accessible from either side of the receiver.

Users will also find an AR-15-compatible grip, as well as M-Lok attachment slots located at the 3-, 6- and 9-o'clock positions on the fore-end. A tri-lug attachment system is included with the barrel, which is compatible with B&T's RBS9 suppressor line, as well as other suppressors built to use B&T's mounting system. The guns also include a flat-faced Elftmann Tactical trigger. Additionally, the non-serialized lower-receiver group can be swapped out with APC9 PRO lowers that are compatible with Glock, SIG Sauer P320 and B&T magazines.

The B&T USA APC9 Limited is available in 8.9" and 6.9" barrel configurations, and the suggested retail price on both models is $3,100. For more information, visit
