Q Is Making A .300 Blackout Honey Badger Pistol
It is has been almost seven years since AAC unveiled the Honey Badger. The original SBR was developed at AAC at the request of an elite US special operations group looking to replace their MP5-SD’s with an upgraded platform. Requirements included the ability to shoot a rifle caliber round while maintaining low visibility and excellent signature suppression. The .300 AAC Blackout Honey Badger was born. It exceeded expectations, but never made it to the commercial market. That’s about to change.
At the time, AAC was owned by Kevin Brittingham. It was his R&D team that lead the development. Brittingham sold AAC and started up a new company, Q, where he continued production of the Honey Badger. It comes in various lengths but the intent was always a short barreled firearm. Now Q has teamed up with SB Tactical and developed a pistol stabilizing brace to make a Honey Badger Pistol.
Below are two Honey Badgers. The left side is the SBR version next to the new pistol version with prototype stabilizing brace.
The Honey Badger is extremely light weight. As this image demonstrates. Two honey badgers is only a pound heavier than an HK MP5SD.
