Template:Infobox weapon

The B&T APC9 (Advanced Police Carbine) and its variant B&T APC45 are submachine guns produced and manufactured by B&T (formerly known as Brügger & Thomet) of Switzerland. Announced in 2011, the weapon uses standard 9×19mm (APC9), .40 S&W, and .45 ACP (APC45) rounds.

Variants[edit source | edit]

The APC9/APC45 is offered in several variants.[1] The standard has a barrel length of 175mm (≈ 7 inches) and a polymer stock very similar to an H&K UMP's which folds to the right side, the assault variant with an adjustable B&T Foldable Visor Helmet stock and the carbine variant with a 406mm (16 inch) barrel for the civilian market.[2] All variants are available in 9×19mm (APC9) and .45 ACP (APC45) calibers. There are also -SD variants available, with integrated suppressor muffler.

In March 2019, B&T released its APC9 Pro model, an improvement with a non-reciprocating charging handle and a replaceable pistol grip compatible with grips for the AR-15 style rifle family of firearms. The APC9 Pro will feature an optional lower receiver capable of using Glock magazines.[3]

On March 29, 2019, B&T was awarded a contract in the U.S. Army's Sub Compact Weapon Production-Other Transaction Agreement (P-OTA) competition for its APC9K submachine gun. The $2.6 million contract includes an initial 350 subcompact weapons (SCW) with an option for additional quantities of up to 1,000 SCWs, with slings, manuals, accessories, and spare parts.[4]
