New adjustable stocks from Swiss B&T

B&T APC9 "Suomi" with fixed suppressor and new telescopic stock.

For the Swiss B&T APC-9/45 semi-automatic carbines and B&T APC223/300 semi-auto rifles there are multiple shoulder stocks available. It seems the swiss never run out of ideas to produce.

If you’re unfamiliar with the B&T APC it can be described as a modern HK MP5.

The latest addition to the APC line is the B&T telescopic stock, which has 3 + 1 positions (length only) adjustable settings.

The new stock offers extremely compact dimension, and can be extracted very fast by simply pulling it out.

The stock is self locking and there is no need to press any levers when pulling it out.

To get it back in the minimized position, simply press the lever and push it back in.

The stock is very easy to operate, offers great support albeit its limited size and, most important of all, it is possible to shoot with the stock in the minimized position.

Collapsed the shortest B&T APC9 is only 404 mm (15.9″) overall. Extended 582 mm ((22.9″).

The weapon design between the APC9 and the AR-15 is obviously not the same, but compared to the North Eastern Arms Compact Carbine Stock the B&T solution feels much better and more reliable.

The price? If you have to ask…688 CHF or roughly 700 USD.

As the buffer and spring is built into the stock, and the quantities are limited, this is most likely the main reasons behind the hefty price tag.

B&T also have a lot of options for the H&K MP5/MP5SD/MP5k range of sub-machine guns.

Also, if you are lucky to own one, the new stock seems to fit the B&T 40 mm Greande Launcher.

    “If you’re unfamiliar with the B&T APC it can be described as a modern HK MP5.”
    Straight blowback instead of roller delayed… even though it has bolt hold open as a modern feature, it sounds to me more of a Swiss UMP.

    • thedonn007

      I still want one. I don’t know the price, but it can’t be cheap.

      • Giolli Joker

        I’d take one too.
        I’m just saying that I don’t see much backing to its definition “as a modern HK MP5”.

      The ACP is hydraulically buffered

    Those 4 stocks reminds me of fallout 4: short, standard, Marksman and Recoil-compensating.

    Only if those can be made on a lathe with a few screws, polymer and adhesives lol

    Hey, all 3 people in the United States that own one of these!

    On PCC’s – Is it likely other manufacturers will make a piston-operated 9x19mm like the MPX or is there a consensus that SIG may seriously regret going the gas piston route and maybe that’s one reason it’s been delayed so much?

  • Mmmtacos

    When I first saw Die Hard, I wanted an MP5. When the UMP came out, I still wanted an MP5. When the Scorpion EVO came out, I still wanted an MP5. When the Sig MPX came out, I was more impressed, but still wanted an MP5.

    Then I saw the B&T APC9, and now I want it, not an MP5.

    Nice that MP5/SP89 clones are coming out and getting (slightly, relatively) more reasonably priced than they were just a few, scant years ago. However they still seem way overpriced, and it’s a big tax to pay for the “cool factor” of an MP5 clone when the idea of an SMG in and of itself is more or less just for cool factor.

    Still, the notoriously high price of MP5 clones (never mind the real deal) makes it easier to swallow the high price tag of a B&T APC9. But if the reviews are to be believed then you’re getting your money’s worth on the B&T.

      The ACP is a beautiful piece of Swiss craftsmanship. Amazing little gun, I love mine.

  • Some Dude

    Are 922r parts available just in case somebody wants to SBR one of these?

    • rudyelf

      Why? Why must you be the one guy that has to ask. You and your kind are the reason CZ had to make 922r compliance kits. Way back in the day we would make NFA items without 922r compliance because it was the general consensus that NFA trumped 922r compliance. But then people like you started writing the ATF. Of course they are going to take away rights when you highlight ambiguity. I am actually kinda busy, but I had to sign in just to berate you and your kind. Just STFU about 922r compliance you simple fa ggi t. You are made with less than 10 US made Male parts. I hope you never get into making explosive devices legally, because then you are going to start asking questions regarding the ambiguous parts that as a general rule we take as freedoms, and the ATF is cool with that. Admins don’t delete my comment because I went on a personal attack, when you probably never deleted comments that attacked freedom.
