Crafted seemingly of unobtainium, guns by Swiss defense supplier Brugger & Thomet are rare and hard to come by, which makes this 1,000-round review kinda neat.
In the above 17-minute video from Alabama Arsenal, they get their hands on the APC9SD, which is B&Ts take on the HK MP5SD– utilizing an integral suppressor that has the ability to shoot even supersonic 9mm ammo at subsonic speeds. The configuration the guys in the Yellowhammer State are working with is a semi-auto pistol with a brace, and they seem to really dig it.
This neat-o European sub gun is getting some love, with Austria’s national SWAT team, the EKO Cobra, using a variant of the APC9 as a close-quarters weapon.
Recently, B&T also won a tender to provide 14 of their semi-auto carbine versions of the gun to police in New York.
