First Look: B&T USA APC10 PRO

posted on February 4, 2020

B&T, LLC. is the designer and manufacturer of some of the world’s most technologically advanced and high-performance weapons systems. Its APC9K submachine was the recent winner of an Army competition to select a new 9 mm submachine gun, and now it is proud to introduce its latest addition to the compact weapon-system line-up, the APC10 PRO, which is chambered in 10 mm.

“Our customers have been asking for a big-bore variant of our proven APC family of weapon systems,” said Tim Nickler, CEO of B&T USA. “The 10 mm round introduces new capabilities to the APC platform; increased terminal performance, intermediate barrier penetration and sheer energy on target, all in a size optimized for discrete deployment.”

Just like it’s APC9/40 PRO cousins, the all-new APC10 PRO uses a hydraulic buffer system to cut down on felt recoil and muzzle rise. The new APC10 PRO also offers modern features like a new dual auto-folding, non-reciprocating and ambidextrous charging handle, improved lower-receiver ergonomics which include a side-positioned bolt hold open/release, removable M4 compatible grip and Magpul M-Lok accessory slots on the fore-end. The APC10 PRO accepts Glock Model 20 magazines and is compatible with wide range of B&T APC accessories that includes folding/collapsible stocks, interfaces, handguards and suppressors.
