Entry Level B&T GHM9 Redesign Finally Official

By now you are probably wondering if I get a secret monthly check from Switzerland to promote B&T products. So let me take a moment to set the record straight: I can not confirm or deny any foreign payroll income related to sexy Swiss firearms. But if your reading this, B&T mothership, call me. My last envelope must have been lost in the mail. As for the latest news, the B&T GHM9 redesign is official on the company’s website, and it is attractive in both form and price point.

As we have mentioned a few times in the past, the entry-level gun was recently reworked to become a side-charging action rather than a top charger like it’s limited release cousin the KH9. And with the changes and a predicted U.S. price point of $1,300, a whole new slice of the shooting/collecting market opens up.

Obviously, import restrictions will require the B&T GHM9 to be imported as a pistol, however the adventurous type can file their ATF Form 1 applications to make a short barreled rifle (SBR). Stay tuned for a release date announcement. As soon as I get word from my EU and FL handlers, that is.


The GHM9 is a sporty 9 x 19 mm carbine with an integrated shoulder stock. The GHM9 is a perfect and inexpensive semi-automatic carbine for dynamic shooting as well as just for plinking.

    So much the better, but they would do well to proofread their documents.

    Secretarial misspellings are the bane of many a business, even in this age of spell check.

    Even so, this new piece definitely goes on the “want it” list, along with an APC45 and and a TP9 FDE, complete with shoulder stock and “snap in” holster.

    Lol. Yikes!

    • Chrono777

      Funny that their official Instagram account is Brugger & Thomet.

    I have trouble seeing anything more expensive than a Hi Point carbine as “entry level”.

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      You’re not wrong. This is like saying “entry level Porsche”

      • Brett baker

        To quote Fortier,”Go be poor somewhere else.” Taking his advice, I’ll now go to Hi-point’s website.

        • Concerned Third Party

          B&T P26 is $900 on Atlantic’s website. This gun should be priced below that. $900 is hardly expensive for a *gun* this day and age.

  • Voice from East

    Why i can’t find P26 on B&T website? Is it scrapped?

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      B&T sold the patent. To a small Italian company. It’s dead Jim.

      • Giolli Joker

        Do you know the name of the Italian company? I can investigate how dead it actually is.

        • El Dude

          Beretta. It is going to replace the Beretta SMGs that are in service with the Italians. No plans on civilian sales.

        • Pete – TFB Writer

          Even though it’s semi public info, I was asked not to say. Hint though, I was being sarcastic with “small”.

        There much to the patent? It’s basically an updated tech 9/kg99. Seems like that would have lapsed years ago.

  • Eric B

    They are not called Brügger and Thomet any longer, just B&T. Thanks!

    • Raptor Fred

      Just like it’s not Eric B & Rakim, Just Eric B. I reminisce……

      • FearlessFarris

        Paid in Full.

  • Madcap_Magician

    Sporty? Does the price include the Mazda Miata, or is that an upgrade?

  • CharlesH

    But the top charging handle was the best part, it made it so unique 🙁

  • Vhyrus

    They need to make this as a long barrel carbine. I could use something for PCC matches.

  • Raptor Fred

    SWISS TEC 9 in the house BOYEEEE!!

  • int19h

    Given that this would be competing directly against Scorpion EVO, they really should rethink that price.

    No gas? I’ll pass.

  • Grant

    I don’t see the appeal. $1300 for a blow back 9mm. I’d rather have a Kel-Tec Sub 2k for less than $400. It folds in half and takes Glock mags. That way I don’t have to spend a small fortune on obscure, over priced Swiss mags.

  • Timbo1

    Woot! Can’t wait to form 1 that beauty!

  • Tom

    Pete, as a professional writer, you should know better…

    “But if your reading this,…” Should be “you’re”

    Also, how could your editor let this slip?

    Language (and grammar) are actually critical to maintaining our culture – as well as our rights!

  • Ralph also takes a lot of their photos; really nice guy.
