The APC45 has been a popular pistol caliber carbine for a lot of individuals as well as law enforcement agencies. However, for the average user of the APC45 Pro, having to shell out nearly $100 per magazine can get pretty expensive if you plan on running your PCC within a competition or using it for daily patrol. Now, B&T is offering the APC45 Pro-G model which is compatible with Glock 21 magazines which are reliable, durable, and most important of all – much more affordable.

B&T Releases the Glock Compatible Lower APC45 Pro
Our customers have been requesting a Glock lower receiver group option for this big-bore variant of our proven APC family of weapon systems,” said Jon Scott, Vice President of Sales, B&T USA. “The time has come for us to provide this option to those seeking the option of the heavier weight 45ACP projectile with its increased terminal performance, intermediate barrier penetration and sheer energy on target, all in a size optimized for discrete deployment.
The B&T APC 45 Pro-G will use the same hydraulic buffer system to keep the recoil of the 45 ACP cartridge tamed and the new offering will also feature its improved lower receiver ergonomics like M4 grip compatibility, and side-mounted bolt hold-open/release. The new model obviously takes the biggest benefit from the added Glock magazine capacity which will allow users to choose from a myriad of magazines including aftermarket Glock 21 magazines which are sometimes even more affordable than factory Glock magazines. Compared to a factory B&T APC 45 Pro magazine which costs nearly $100, you can expect to get out the door for less than $30 for a Glock magazine with a capacity similar to the 17-round factory mags for the B&T APC 45.
