That looks like a fun toy

The Swiss firm of Brugger & Thomet a few years ago coughed up a neat little SMG termed the Advanced Police Carbine, or APC. Nominally a pistol-caliber burp gun that can top 1,080 rounds-per-minute the company beat out a Baker’s Dozen of big-name gun makers last year with a shortened version, the APC9K, to win an Army contract to replace the HK MP5K in use with Personal Security Details guarding key command staff like SACEUR and UNC/CFC/USFK.

The new B&T APC9K is trim and, importantly, can take Sig P320 mags– which are used by the Army’s new M17/M18 pistols.

I got to handle one lately.

The APC9K, in what is dubbed a PRO series, is a semi-auto and is seeing some success on the law enforcement market for specialized services, such as when suppressed in the hands of an entry team in a meth lab.

Miami Beach just selected the B&T APC9K PRO this month. More on that in my column at Guns.com.
