The APC (Advanced Police Carbine) line from B&T USA is growing in popularity among U.S. civilians, law enforcement, and military alike. However, that has led to calls from customers for a Glock lower receiver group option for its big bore variant. For this reason, B&T USA releases its new APC45 PRO-G with Glock compatible lower receiver.
The B&T USA APC45 PRO-G
With an aluminum frame, the APC45 PRO-G utilizes a hydraulic buffer system just like the APC9 PRO and APC45 PRO. As a result, comes drastically reduced felt recoil and muzzle rise, aiding in accuracy and useability. Similarly, a full length top Picatinny rail and quarter length rails at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, allow for the addition of optics and other accessories. Likewise, the forend features Magpul M-Lok accessory slots just forward of the charging handle.
Dual auto-folding, non-reciprocating charging handles, on either side of the forend, provide ambidextrous operation. Additionally, improved lower receiver ergonomics include a removable M4 compatible grip as well as a side positioned bolt hold open/release.
Chambered in 45 AUTO, the APC45 PRO-G is compatible with Glock Model 21 magazines. In addition, the platform is also compatible with myriad of B&T APC accessories, including folding/collapsible stocks, interfaces, handguards, and suppressors.
“Our customers have been requesting a Glock lower receiver group option for this big-bore variant of our proven APC family of weapon systems,” said Jon Scott, Vice President of Sales, B&T USA. “The time has come for us to provide this option to those seeking the option of the heavier weight 45ACP projectile with its increased terminal performance, intermediate barrier penetration and sheer energy on target, all in a size optimized for discrete deployment.”
The B&T USA APC45 PRO-G is available now, with MSRP to be determined. For more info, please visit BT-USA.com.
