TRIGGRCON 19 – B&T APC9K

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

B&T displayed their 9mm APC9K, recently adopted by the US Army as the new Sub Compact Weapon. So far, 10 weapons have been delivered and an order for the remainder of the initial procurement of 350 APC9Ks should be soon. Ultimately, the Army requires about 1,000 SCWs for the requirement outlined below.

The SCW requirement arose from the Military Police. United States military operations take place worldwide and in all types of terrains as well as under every environmental condition. The Secretary of the Army and/or the Chief of Staff approves senior commanders and key personnel as High Risk Personnel (HRP). HRPs are authorized a Personal Security Detail (PSD), which are assigned to guard against outlined threats. To address this operational need, PSD military personnel require weapons with greater lethality than pistols that are more concealable than rifles. The ultimate objective of this program was to acquire a highly concealable Sub Compact Weapon (SCW) system capable of engaging threat personnel with a high volume of lethal force while accurately firing at close range with minimal collateral damage.

Although it’s seen here equipped with an Aimpoint ACRO Red Dot Sight, there’s no word on which, if any, optical sight the US Army will use. They do however, come equipped with backup iron sights.

There is a great deal of interest in the SCW by federal law enforcement. Interestingly, B&T can provide lower receivers which accept GLOCK or SIG P320 magazines, rather than the proprietary B&T magazines seen here.

TRIGGRCON 19 – GEN 12 from Genesis Arms – 12 GA Upper Receiver for AR10

Monday, July 29th, 2019

The GEN-12 from Genesis Arms is a 12 ga upper receiver group for use with DPMS 308AR (gen1) lowers.

The short recoil operates as a delayed blowback with the barrel actually moving each time it is fired, like on a GLOCK. You can see the guide for the barrel in the end of the handguard. They are currently developing a standoff system for use as a breaching shotgun.

The reciprocating charging handle is on the right side of the receiver.

In addition to the upper, they provide a reliability package with beefed up springs for the bolt catch and magazine release.

Due to the operating system, the lower can be fitted with a folding stock.

The GEN 12 uses proprietary magazines. Five round versions are currently available, but they are working on a 10 rounder. The biggest issue was working out the curve shape for a smooth feed.
