Gabor, a reader from Hungary, sent us a photo of his B&T APC9. This semi-automatic (consumer legal) version is chambered in 9mm NATO. Earlier this year we reported that importer ARMATI was planning on bringing the APC9 (minus the folding stock) into the USA this year but we have heard nothing from them since March.

Gabor says it is a very nice gun to shoot and easy to control when firing rapidly. The only downside is that in Hungary is costs approximately $3000 US Dollars!

    /insert generic statement questioning high price of said firearm

      We need comparative prices of other weapons available to purchase in Hungary (glock, HK, remington 870, a typical ar-15, etc)

        A Glock is 8500 USD at my current country of residence, go figure… 2000 USD for a 38 snub nose of local origin. It’s not Hungary though

            No sir, Colombia. We’re also talking legal prices here…

            Just about the other side of the world.

    • Kovacs Jeno

      800-900 usd a G17, 1500-1600 usd a Sig P226.
      average monthly income for a Hungarian citizen: cca. 500-600 usd.

  • My local range has one of these. I really need to put some rounds through it.

    is it just me or does there seem to be a resurgence of SMGs on the market.

      Only good things can come of this. (IMO)

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Apparently some people may have noticed that 7.5″ 556 blows super hard, 10.5″ ARs are concussive and (relative to a polymer SMG) heavy, 556 doesn’t suppress very well, 300blk is expensive, and that 9mm is no joke so thirty rounds of it is fairly serious.

      In before someone comes blabbering about body armor.

    CZ EVO3: $850 MSRP, ~$18 30rnd mags.

    Proof that “NEW” can be done without becoming “ONLY-FOR-THE-INDEPENDANTLY-WEALTHY Expensive”

    Thanks for the share!

    Does the way it’s folded and the small apparent size in this photo remind anyone of the original version of the TEC-9?
