In April 2019, B&T won the contract to the U.S. Army Subcompact Weapon contract, with an initial order of 350. Last week, B&T USA has announced a limited run to commemorate the initial delivery of ACP9K Pro to the U.S. Army. The commemorative ACP9K Pro will come complete with serialized cases and much more. Out of the 350 commemorative editions 333 will be made available to the U.S. market.
The commemorative edition comes with the B&T ACP9K Pro, a Aimpoint Nano Optic mounted on a B&T Low Riser, and a Gearhead Works Tailhook brace Mod 1. B&T also added a MicroTech Dirac automatic knife with matching serial number and B&T branding. Other goodies with this package includes a Pelican case with custom foam cutouts, a Vertx Sling bag, and a co-serialized challenge coin.
These commemorative editions have already begun to ship to firearm retailers. This commemorative edition of ACP9K PRO MicroTech blade, and all other goodies retails for $6,999.99 MSRP.
Below is the proudct description from B&T on their commemorative edition for the ACP9K Pro.
The Advanced Police Carbine (APC) series was developed to meet and exceed the demands of modern police, special forces, and military units around the world and represents the ultimate in performance, reliability and accuracy. For these reasons, the United States Army selected the APC9K as its Sub Compact Weapon (SCW) to support global personal protective missions.
In recognition of the initial delivery of 333 SCW’s, B&T commissioned 350 SCW-serialized APC9K PRO models, 333 of which will be made available exclusively to US-based collectors.
Commemorative Case Includes:
• APC9K “Sub Compact Weapon” PRO Pistol
• Telescoping Brace & Stock Adapter
• Gearhead Works Tailhook Mod 1 Brace
• Aimpoint Nano Optic on a B&T Low Profile Riser
• Serialized Letter of Authenticity
• Custom Pelican 1600 Series Protector Case with Fitted Foam
• Two 30-rd & one 20-rd B&T Magazines with Bumpers
• B&T Co-Branded Microtech Dirac Automatic Knife with Matching Serial Number
• Commemorative Co-Serialized Challenge Coin – 1 Troy Oz .999% Pure Silver
• Vertx Dead Letter Sling Bag
The APC9K is expected to be issued to, and employed by, Personal Security Details (PSD) personnel tasked with protecting senior United States Army leaders, and other principles traveling to less secure areas. An operational need was identified for a highly concealable sub compact weapon system capable of engaging threat personnel with a high volume of lethal and accurate fire at close ranges, with minimal collateral damage — a compact submachine gun fills this niche. The APC9K was procured to fill this capability gap in lethality and concealability; essentially bridging the gap between pistol and rifle.
The APC9K accomplishes this, in spades. At less than 15-inches in length, the AP9K is an incredibly concealable platform optimized for low visibility carriage and discreet deployment; use in and around vehicles, and within confined spaces — all while delivering unsurpassed accuracy, controllability and ergonomics.
