I have wanted one of these for a long time and finally talked my buddy out of one (he had 3). This one came set up as you see it with the Aimpoint micro. I had read many times how accurate these guns are and this one does not disappoint. Groups at 25yds were mostly through the same hole. The Swiss build some damn fine machines.

Nice gun. I had a Ghm9 and always wanted to step up to one of these. I'm very jealous. Have fun shooting it.

Very recently picked up the APC9K Pro with Glock and B&T lowers and have been very impressed.

Congrats,that is very cool. I like the three lug on the barrel. Gives it a newer/different vibe.

She’s a beauty for sure. I love my HK SP5 and SP5k, but in my heart of hearts I actually think my APC9 is a better gun. I love them all equally in their own way, but the B&T guns really are special.

I love these B&T's. Too bad they are so hard to get generally, and of course expensive. But save your pennies and get the B&T telescoping brace and the APC is as perfect as you can get in this type of firearm.

Great concept, if only their QC would be better. It's not really up to what we are used to, and they're asking a swiss quality price, so....

Interesting comment. I have quite a few of these apc’s and had no issues in many rounds. What problems might there be?

Can you get an aftermarket safety lever? Even though it is ambi, it's not great for a left handed person due to the lever size and bias for right handed use. Also, are the B&T mags any better now? I heard about some issues.

There are aftermarket charging (for sure) and safety levers I think but I have no idea if they fix what bothers you personally as I’m a righty and all is fine. The apc mags have not given me any trouble but what is great about the gun is can run Glock or Sig so that’s mostly what I do. Fully agree the aftermarket is nothing like cz or ar9 but the gun itself is like a different category from the get go. If it has some deficiencies that matter to you then it’s not the best option. But as I said I have run a lot of rounds and compared to the zillion other things I own I like it the best.

That looks nice. Where is a good place to look for one? I've been thinking about getting one for a while but haven't seen any in my neck of the woods.

You've got some great buddies!! The Kidd, this, the STIs; I wish my buddies had such good taste.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them.'

You might also try Franklins southwest of Nashville.

If you mean local purchase I have no idea. I have bought all of mine from Tar Heel State firearms and europtic. Both highly recommended. THSF is extra great as they will engrave it for you.

buddy of mine had problems with his 9mm suppressor. Also there are a few APC-556 that have reliability issues.

The magazines of my TP9 break easy. So far the costumer service is great, they replace the broken ones no questions asked. But it's still annoying.

Would be interesting to know where and how you are breaking these mags?

The one, I accidently dropped on a concrete floor. Floorplate broke.

On others (not mine), the feed lips wore out when using a APC9-SD.

The lowers which accept Glock magazines might be the solution to such issues.
