APC9K Weapon Storage Rack – B&T USA won the US Army contract for a small submachine gun in 2019. With the Army now fielding the new APC9Ks, the call to meet AR 190-11 and store them properly can be answered with Combat Weapon Racks.
The APC9K is the first new submachine gun for the US Army since the M3 grease gun from World War II. The APC9K is a new submachine gun developed in conjunction with and for EKO Cobra.
The APC9K uses a closed-bolt blowback system with a maximum rate of fire of 1,080 rounds per minute, and weighs just 5.9 pounds with 30-round magazine, foregrip, and Aimpoint micro red dot aiming sight. It’s chambered in 9-millimeter Parabellum and comes standard with two 30-round translucent magazines.
The APC9K has a side folding stock for compact carry and features a 4 position Picatinny rail system on the barrel shroud. The APC9K can also mount suppressors and are fully ambidextrous.
APC9Ks will be used to arm Army Personal Security Details. PSDs are assigned to senior leaders and staff to protect them from insider attacks in friendly territory, enemy forces in war zones, and various other threats. Soldiers assigned to PSD units spend a great deal of time indoors or inside vehicles and helicopters, relying on a compact weapon that can be quickly brought into action.
