B&T AG is getting ready to start production of the new APC 300. Â The APC, or Advanced Police Carbine, will be chambered in .300 Whisper, and is designed from the ground up for the cartridge. Â The gun is full-auto capable and is intended for use with a sound suppressor. Â The APC 300 fires from a closed bolt.
B&T states the gun is adaptable to right- and left-handed shooters, and comes with an ambidextrous charging handle, magazine release, bolt release and selector switch.
With the company’s ROTEX suppressor and a 220 grain subsonic load, the APC 300’s noise signature is “…well below 140 dB.” Â According to B&T, this makes the APC 300 “more quiet than the (H&K) MP5SD, but with a greater range.”
The fore end will have four Picatinny-type accessory rails. Â The top of the receiver will also be outfitted with a rail for the easy addition of an optic. Â No iron sights are expected to ship with the gun.
Currently, B&T anticipates shipping the APC 300 with an Aimpoint Micro TL1 optic, a single point sling, a vertical foregrip, two 30-round magazines, a cleaning kit and hard plastic carry case. Â Options will include sound suppressors and a weapon mounted light.
The stock both folds and adjusts for length.
Production will start in early 2014, and the rifle is planned to be available in March or April. Â The company expects to finalize the specifications shortly and will publish them when production starts around February.
