Brügger & Thomet (B&T) continues to grow. In April, Tactical Life reported B&T’s APC9K won a new sub-compact weapon contract from the U.S. Army. Now the manufacturer has announced a follow-up model to its previous APC9 and APC40 Pro sub-guns called the APC10 Pro. The B&T APC10 Pro chambers the hard-hitting 10mm round, a popular defensive choice.

“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 10mm 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.”
Like the ACP9 and APC40 Pro models, the APC10 Pro utilizes a hydraulic buffer system to drastically reduce felt recoil and muzzle rise. It also features a new dual auto-folding, non-reciprocating and ambidextrous charging handle. The lower receiver incorporates improved ergonomics, including a side positioned bolt hold open/release. Meanwhile, an M4-compatible grip and Magpul M-LOK accessory slots on the forend round out the package.
The APC10 Pro also accepts Glock 20 magazines. It accommodates a myriad of B&T APC accessories, including folding/collapsible stocks, interfaces, handguards and suppressors. For more information, visit bt-arms.com.
