Alpine Green B&T TP9 Semi-auto pistol

This is the first time I have ever seen a Alpine Green B&T.

This firearm is a B&T TP9 semi-auto Pistol with (or without) an Aimpoint Micro TL. The specific model is BT-TP9TLGRN and they’re available at Dakota Tactical, a company with a whole lot of cool firearms for sale.

Not sure why Dakota Tactical keep calling B&T for Brugger & Thomet. The “Brugger & Thomet” name is gone, and it’s supposed to be “B&T” only.


Picatinny rail in the front.





A throwback to the vintage Swiss Alpenflage camo, the semi-automatic B&T TP9 in Alpine Green is a must have for the discerning firearms enthusiast.

The B&T TP9 9mm semi-automatic pistol is the commercial variant of highly acclaimed MP9 machine pistol which is in use by elite military and law enforcement units around the globe. Made in Switzerland using state of the art materials and manufacturing methods, the TP9 semi-automatic pistol is a masterpiece of Swiss precision. B&T AG is a global industry leader in military and law enforcement weapon systems and accessories.

  • Gary Kirk

    Alright.. Who gave the high point AGH??

  • VanDiemensLand

    $2,350!!!!!! Faaaark! Good thing they don’t make the SCAR!

    • Joe S

      $1850 actually for the Alpine Green. $1750 for black. $2350 is MSRP.

    • DW

      You are telling me APC556/300 isn’t a SCAR equivalent?

  • Pulo

    It’s not a closed bolt blowback as advertised but a rotary locking system. Damn is it that hard and particulary when calling for ” discerning firearms enthousiasts ” when it’about the color, for supposed professionals just to know what they are selling.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      It’s rotating and linear moving barrel with a rotating bolt… It’s weird.

      Basically it’s the reason I sold the gun, the barrel and bolt resemble and AR-15 bolt, but it’s just stupid complex and doesn’t handle variants of ammo and suppressors well. You basically need their specific suppressor.

      • roguetechie

        Gsh-18 made by a Decent manufacturer is my dream pistol lol… Very similar to the mp9…

        Except for the whole 5% the complexity 200% the ugly

  • Harry’s Holsters

    Did the name change have anything to do with the release of war dogs?

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Discounted at $2350?

    Wow, thanks.

  • J.T.

    $2350? Screw that. I remember 7-8 years ago when you could get a TP9 for under $1000.

    • DIR911911 .

      that was before it became one of the most popular guns on call of duty

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Bought mine for $930. Sold it for $1200.

    • Joe S

      $1850 actually for the Alpine Green. $1750 for black. $2350 is suggested MSRP.

    • Red79cj5

      Bought a steyr spp 2 years ago for less than $600, guess I got lucky. Its a fun gun but suffers fron light primer strikes often enough to be annoying. Can’t find a hammer spring for it anywhere. If that’s even the problem. $70 bucks a magazine aint fun either.

  • Maxpwr

    The Swiss don’t have the highest standard of living in the world for no reason. Now if we could just get 922R overturned as well as Clinton and Bush’s import bans and the SBR portion of the NFA we could import these with shoulder stocks like they were meant to be fired.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      I want to get to Switzerland, but when you consider the similarities in terrain but the crazy difference in price of Slovania, but that’s probably where I’ll go next time I’m in Europe.

      • Maxpwr

        Slovenia sounds nice, but all the cool firearms and good food and history are in Switzerland.

        • iksnilol

          Yeah… no… you an keep your crappy melty cheese, racist gun laws and good guns.

          Rest of Europe has plenty to offer, more than Switzerland on its own.

          • roguetechie

            But I really want an Adolf furrer boxed set damnit!!

            Plus mp41 furrer is the single most hilariously overbuilt 9mm SMG ever.

            It’s actually why I want one… Especially a new build with very durable finish some spare springs and basic care should make one last to the 1000 year anniversary of it’s initial adoption… Even after being explosively vented during that nasty Phobos business in 2634… Rediscovered apparently on it’s way back to Switzerland in 2742…

            Was cleaned lubed and new ammunition fabbed within hours after being recovered from the big empty…

            Immediately test fired by a former Marine headed home after a long fighting season in the craggy badlands and canyons around mount Olympus… (Really was too bad about the space Mormon pilgrimage group massacred by the black foot war band attempting to intercept a pashtun battalion raid in force who encountered the fleet of mars lux fast attack utility rovers bristling with weapons… And … Even more guns!)

            (Everyone knows that the only group more serious than the pashtu about no rover being complete without at least one heavy machine gun and a junior wife gunnery team always on alert was the Mormons…)

            Regrettably many Mormons and black foot perished this day….

            Which did nothing to damper the enthusiastic destruction of another damn popup kalikommune by the survivors of both bands…

            Kalidornikators always make the best blast craters being the universal greeting between any of the hundred nomadic badlands bands

          Slovenia also has awesome industrial/rock music, hot women, beautiful hayracks, and their martial history didn’t end with “And then in 1815 we decided to stay neutral and keep all the good chocolate for ourselves.”

          Slovenia wins hands down.

    • Frank Grimes

      High standard of living is what happens when you side with the Nazis and keep all their gold after the Allies kick their square mustaches in.

      • RocketScientist

        Huh, and here I thought the Swiss stayed neutral during WWII. More wisdom from our buddy Frank.

        • Frank Grimes

          Yeah, clearly the best way to remain “neutral” is to collaborate with the Nazis to smuggle and store the gold they stole from the millions and millions of people they murdered.

          Real neutral, huh?

          Socialists gonna socialize.

          • RocketScientist

            Ok, so for those keeping score at home. The world according to Frank:

            – .22 is the most pointless caliber ever, and anyone who owns/shoots a .22 is a moron and should replace them all with 9mm because its better in every way than a .22

            – Despite being the first nation to declare ISIS a terrorist organization, and despite leading MANY military operations against ISIS at a great loss of life and materiel, the Turkish gov’t actually IS Isis.

            – The swiss were actually a member of the axis powers, and not neutral in WWII.

            I can’t wait to hear what’s next. Is he going to blow the top off the moon landings (I’m sorry, ALLEGED moon landings)? The Bilderbergs? Maybe he’s the one holding onto all the HiDef pictures of bigfoot?

          • Frank Grimes



            You have a problem with the truth?

            Or is it something more? I mean defending ISIS and defending a country that had a hand in the Holocaust, kind of points towards maybe having a problem with a certain group of people, huh?

            Never thought I would come across such blatant antisemitism on TFB.

            Maybe Stormfront is more your speed?

          • RocketScientist

            Hahahahahaha. I’m an anti-semite. That’ll get a big laugh at the synagogue tonight. Thanks Frank, I needed a laugh.

          • Frank Grimes

            Yeah, maybe let them know you’re defending Holocaust collaborators and thieves.

            See how well that goes over.

          • RocketScientist

            I’ve said it before, and odds are I’ll have to say it again: Frank, you’re a f*****g idiot.

          • Frank Grimes

            So I’m an idiot because the Swiss collaborated with the Nazis during Holocaust to smuggle and stash the gold the stole from the millions and millions of innocent men, women, and children that they murdered?

            That makes sense, scumbag.

          • Kurt Akemann

            Being inflammatory in this fashion does nothing but turn the comment thread into a flame war. Dial it back, please.

          • Frank Grimes

            He has his right to free speech.

            Sure he’s wrong and denying part of the Holocaust, ignoring historical facts and reality, but he still has the right to speak it.

            You trying to stifle his free speech is worse than any insults or profanity.

            Dial it back, please.

          • roguetechie

            Ummm…. The swiss were technically neutral, but said “neutrality” was always the type of neutral that had no problem accepting looted wealth etc from anyone who wanted to make them their bankers….

            They also sold key materials to the Reich almost to the bitter end.

            It’s well documented in reputable sources and was never really denied by anyone.

            Some speculate that swiss shipments into Germany under neutral flag and even posing as medical evacuation trains etc

          • Machinegunnertim

            Don’t forget his adamant claim that IWI makes “junk”

  • Anon

    A few cursory searches show this can be found for $1750. While that isn’t cheap it’s a far cry better than $2350.

  • JumpIf NotZero


    I REALLY wanted to like mine. It’s TINY, and as an SBR it checks all the right boxes on paper. It’s the lightweight uzi that never was, if the Uzi was stupid complex and there were never any parts available for it. Had to sell.

    The action is a wierd combo of a rotating and moving barrel and an AR-15 and a heavy carrier. It’s just kind of dumb how expensive to make and complex it is. I don’t care what the people who spend 2k on one say – it DOES NOT suppress well or even handle multiple types of ammo well. I put a large volume subgun can on it, and it was THE SINGLE GASSIEST gun I’ve ever shot. Makes the MPX which is pretty unacceptably gassy seem like an no-gass MP5 in comparison.

    I see it now and I still want one, but the B&T APC is a far better gun – also for a stupid price though.

    • Joe S

      Were you use the factory B&T MP9/TP9 can? The TP9 requires a very low backpressure can.

  • Joe S

    Thanks for the mention! You are correct, B&T is the now the official company name. You will still see us use “Brugger & Thomet” in some of our headings simply for search engine indexing and you always see it accompanied with “B&T”.

  • John

    >“Brugger & Thomet” name is gone, and it’s supposed to be “B&T” only.

    Yeah, and it’s “f’n” USA, and it’s Heckler und Koch, and it’s Kalashnikov Concern, and it’s actually a MAC-10, not an Uzi, and you know what? They sell weapons and a lot of people already don’t like weapon manufacturers or weapon dealers, so let’s just go ahead and call them Brugger and Thomet because they’re the guys that make the cool-looking plastic Uzis.

    I’m not sure how useful this pistol is to the U.S. market though.

  • billyoblivion

    > 2,350 USD


    Just say’in that that is a LOT of green for that little thing.

  • Ryan

    How is this green different than the green variant brought in by DSArms?

  • roguetechie

    Is that AK5 green?

    oh my lord…. To have matching ak5 and mp9… Could life be any better?

  • Cope

    I’ve been wanting one of these since DSA imported them back in the day. I read an article that the DSA one had many feeding issues somewhere and never bought one. Those were made by B&T also, so I’m not sure if it was teething issues taking over the Steyr weapon or if it was simply an anomoly.

    Suffice it to say, this firearm is definitely on my want list. I think if you bought it, you’d just have to spring for the B&T can for it too.
