B&T USA is proud to announce the São Paulo Brazil Civilian Police have purchased 700 B&T APC9-G PRO models equipped with MBT folding and telescoping stocks, Glock compatible lower receivers, RQD suppressors and Aimpoint ACRO P2 optics on B&T QD mounts.
This acquisition is part of its plan to modernize the equipment of its security forces. These compact weapon systems are chambered in 9mm, allowing cartridge commonality between the divisions service pistols and its new submachine gun.
We are very pleased the Government of São Paulo and the Secretariat of Public Security have selected B&T APC9-G PRO models, reinforcing its commitment to provide firearms of high quality and efficiency to units within its institution.
This contract marks our company’s second contract for US-produced APC submachine gun models for the professionals of São Paulo, Brazil — the first being APC40 models to the country’s Military Police.
Chris Mudgett, Vice President of Marketing, B&T USA
