B&T USA APC 45 Pro G: Taking Them Glock Mags!

The popularity of compact and subcompact firearms continues to increase as people consider home defense and truck guns as the realm of guns other than small pistols. This is one of the ways B&T USA furthered the compact weapon system market: this is the APC 45 PRO G. It is chambered in 45 ACP and features a Glock-compatible lower receiver – making the weapon immediately more appealing to gun owners.

Jon Scott, Vice President of Sales, B&T USA, had the following to say regarding the company’s product when released: “[Customers wanted] a Glock lower receiver group option for this big-bore variant of our proven APC family of weapon systems. 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.”

This is a 45 ACP-chambered APC designed for superior versatility and performance. It makes a solid range weapon but also has legitimate personal defense applications whether for home defense or use as a truck gun. A full-length Picatinny rail is ideal for red dot sights, magnifiers, and other accessories. Rails at either side and underneath the forend are useful for items such as lights or lasers.

The capacity of the APC45 PRO-G depends on the magazine the shooter chooses to use with it, but according to retailers the guns ship with a 25-round magazine. Users interested in a lot more capacity could certainly use the gun with Glock-compatible drum magazines or other larger-capacity designs.

The APC 45 PRO-G has a hydraulic buffer system designed to significantly reduce felt recoil and muzzle rise which, in turn, improves accuracy and useability. It also has a dual auto-folding, non-reciprocating and ambidextrous charging handle to make operating the gun simpler. According to the manufacturer the ergonomics of the lower receiver have been improved to include a side positioned bolt hold open, an M4 compatible grip that’s removable for greater customization, and forend Magpul M-Lok accessory slots.

What makes this such a versatile option for gun owners is that the APC 45 PRO-G works with Glock 21 magazines and is also compatible with numerous B&T APC accessories. Currently, available accessories include folding and collapsible stocks, various interfaces, handguards, and suppressors.
