The APC9 K Pro is a Swiss-made submachine gun that recently won a contract with the US Army. As a replacement for the MP5, it’s a mighty good package.
The APC9’s blowback action is augmented with hydraulics which reduces felt recoil significantly. It’s got fold-away ambidextrous non-reciprocating charging handles and AR-style grips.
Its lower receiver can be swapped to fit various magazines, like Glock or SIG M17 mags.
The K is the compact version with a collapsible skeletonized stock. There’s also the SD version, which has a shorter 5.75″ barrel intended for police and dignitary escorts, as well as a civilian version with a pistol brace that is semi-auto only. The barrel comes threaded and has B+T’s Tri-lug system for muzzle devices. Keep an eye on GunsAmerica for more on the APC9 K Pro
