Last Thursday, B&T USA announced the arrival of the new Special Purpose Carbine or SPC9 for short. The new SPC9 by B&T combines the features and characteristics from a few different weapon platforms to create the best shooting experience possible. The SPC9 takes elements from the HK MP-5, the AR platform, and the B&T APC9. Taking features from these weapon platforms allow for B&T to make a smoother shooting experience with the SPC9. Most critics knocks on the direct blow back system is perceived increase felt recoil. The B&T SPC9 utilizes a hydraulic buffer system similar like other SMGs to reduce the perceived recoil of blow back operating systems. The new SPC9 will be available in 5 different variants including an integrally suppressed variant.
Below, is the press release from B&T on the SPC9.
Tampa, FL (January 13, 2022) – B&T USA is excited to introduce its all-new SPC9-series. Born from a European tender requesting a 9mm carbine with the same handling characteristics and ergonomics as the AR platform; the all-new SPC9 incorporates many of the features foundon the B&T APC9, MP5 and AR platforms combined into one, very versatile platform. Lightweight and reliable, well balanced and accurate, safe and modular — the SPC9 checks all the boxes and is one of the lightest recoiling 9mm carbines available, thanks to B&T’s innovative and effective hydraulic buffer system.
“As is the case with virtually every product B&T develops, the SPC9 was created because a professional entity asked us to do it” said Jon Scott, Vice President of Sales, B&T USA. “B&T developed the SPC9-series at the request of a European Police Unit, who immediately adopted it in large numbers. Since that time, several variants have been developed to meet other needs and B&T USA will be offering five variations, to start. Those are inclusive of a 4.5-inch barreled PDW, integrally suppressed PDW-SD, 9-inch Standard, integrally suppressed Standard SD and a 16-inch carbine slated for later in the year.”
Some of the features found on the SPC9 are time proven while others are state-of-the-art and modern. One of the unique features of SPC9-series is that it is equipped with two different charging handle systems. One of these is the handle found on AR platforms, while the other is a non-reciprocating, foldable charging handle located above the barrel. This gives the user the choice to use whatever manual of arms that is preferred; both systems are ambidextrous.
