B&T USA Expands Production of APC9K SD2 US Army Submission

Friday, January 19th, 2024

Tampa, Florida–B&T USA, a leading manufacturer of firearms and suppressors, is pleased to announce that it has expanded production of its 9mm APC9K SD2 models complete with the company’s scalable suppressor system. This variant was submitted for consideration during the United States Army Sub Compact Weapon (SCW) trials as a demonstration of technology, with the Army ultimately awarding that contract to B&T USA for its APC9K SMG.

“To win a U.S. Government contract, you must submit a product that as closely meets the defined specifications as possible. That’s not necessarily what you think the end user needs, but when we’re developing platforms like this, we want to be two steps ahead of the game,” said Chris Mudgett, Vice President of Marketing, B&T USA. “In other words, we want to build firearms that won’t be obsolete in a year—or three years, or even 10. Without a doubt, that’s a challenge in the technologically advanced landscape of modern battlefields and urban law enforcement, but when the U.S. Army sees what you’ve done and acknowledges you gave them more than they asked for—much more—you’ve succeeded in fielding a firearm that has market longevity.

“Initially introduced in a very limited production run to service the SCW contract, the demand for the APC9K SD2 from other market segments has been unprecedented,” continued Mudgett. “What our customer want, our customers get, and we’re excited to be ramping up our production numbers in 2024.”

At less than 15 inches in overall length, the APC9K SD2 is the shortest integrally suppressed submachine gun available on the market today (a semi-automatic version is also available to both consumer and professional markets). With a 3-inch ported barrel and an over-the-barrel suppressor design that is fully contained within the short, M-Lok-compatible SD handguard, this weapon is optimized for low-visibility carriage and discreet deployment, delivering exceptional accuracy, controllability and ergonomics. Should the user require the utmost in suppression in lieu of compactness, a second-stage suppressor can be threaded onto the first, providing APC9 SD Compact-level (mid-length) decibel reduction.

Cobalt Kinetics – Scrambler Suppressor

Friday, December 15th, 2023

Released in October, the Scrambler from Cobalt Kinetics apparently flew under my radar. I just ran across it at last weekend’s Grand Opening event for Scottsdale Tactical in the Phoenix area.

3D printed from Titanium using the Laser Powder Bed Fusion method, it weighs just 6.2 ounces and is 4.75 inches long. This means it only adds 4 inches to the overall length of the carbine.

The RCB 6 mount seen here from Cobalt Kinetics but it the Scrambler is also compatible with CGS Group SCI-SIX patterned devices.

Although this is a 5.56 can, it will also work with 6 ARC.

Savage Arms Announces AccuCan Suppressor Line

Monday, December 11th, 2023

WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – December 6, 2023 – Savage Arms continues to cross categories through innovation and product design excellence with the announcement of the AccuCan line of suppressors. Initially available in three multi-caliber options, these suppressors are lightweight, field-serviceable and feature a design that reduces not only sound, but other disturbances like flash and recoil.

The suppressor market and the options available to hunters and shooters continues to grow, evolve and improve every day. For these reasons, Savage worked diligently to create a product line that stood out among the crowd. The Savage AC338, AC30 and AC22 create separation in a busy market.

“At Savage, we have continued to create new products that today’s shooters and hunters demand,” said Rob Gates, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Savage. “We’ve introduced several products into all-new categories, and AccuCan Suppressors are no different. We’re really proud of the features, technology and true performance-enhancing qualities found in our initial suppressor offerings. We’re excited to have the Savage name in another new and rapidly growing category. We can’t wait for shooters and hunters to get these into the field to see the advanced design, quality, reliability and ruggedness that accompany all Savage Arms products.”

The AccuCan Difference

Each individual AccuCan offering is feature-rich and designed to specific criteria that allow them to go head-to-head with existing suppressors in their product category. But there are a few distinct qualities across the entire AccuCan line that represent the innovation that will make them a new, top choice.

Today’s hunters and shooters are mobile, so suppressors can’t be a burden in the weight category. AccuCan offerings from the AC338 down to the AC22 are some of the lightest suppressors available today. They’re also rugged and boast unmatched strength-to-weight ratios.

AccuCans feature a MonoKore design that increases accuracy for seasoned and novice shooters alike. This is achieved by the fact that these suppressors reduce flash and recoil—as well as sound. After all, modern suppressors should do more than reduce a little noise.

Suppressors are now used frequently and owners also need and want to be self-reliant. That’s why each AccuCan is field-serviceable with an easy-to-disassemble/reassemble three-piece design. So whether shooters are at home on the bench or in the field on a hunt, adjustments can be done swiftly without the need for specialized tools or equipment.

The Initial Lineup

The first three offerings include the AC338, AC30 and AC22. With this lineup, there aren’t too many shooters or hunters out there who can’t find a suppressor for their shooting needs. Each Savage AccuCan suppressor brings with it a purpose-driven feature or characteristic to differentiate in a crowded market.

The AC338 is designed to be the lightest suppressor for PRS shooting and beats out other suppressors in its category when it comes to weight-to-strength ratio. The AC30 is also a lightweight hunting and PRS suppressor and is designed specifically for 7.62 x 51mm and 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition. Finally, the AC22 features the MonoKore design that allows the suppressor to be serviceable and the core upgradable and reparable without damaging or changing the serialized part.
