Moving to offer a DMR option in their APC rifle series, Florida-based B&T USA had their new APC308 variant on display at SHOT Show in Las Vegas last week.

A step up from their APC223 models, the new .308 Win caliber rifles feature the same locked, rotating bolt and short-stroke gas piston operating system as their little brothers. With barrel options in 14.3- and 18-inches, the APC308 carbine is also available with either a folding or fixed length-adjustable stock. Weight varies across the variants between 8.59- and 10.58-pounds, including standard folding iron sights and a 20-round magazine.

Length, with the fixed, adjustable stock extended fully ranges from 34.40 to 40.40-inches. Use of the folding stock drops this down to as short as 24-inches with the shortest barrel offering. (Photo: B&T USA)

Additional features include full-length accessory rails and an optional folding charging handle. The barrels interface via QD mount with the B&T Rotex-IIA suppressor series. The rifles ship with a pair of 20-round SR-25 pattern mags, a vertical foregrip, cleaning kit, sling, and case.

Price through the U.S.-based subsidiary of the Swiss Brugger & Thomet company ranges from $3,500 to $3,700, depending on the model.

Tampa-based B&T USA of late has been concentrating on military and LE sales, with a degree of success.
