Getting closer to the USW

20.07.2017

The B&T USW is a, not only at first glance, rather unusual weapon. Even so it looks like a pistol with at stock, there is much more to this concept. That’s why experts rate the USW as the best Anti-Terror-Weapon for First Responders. In some cases it needs a certain “convergence” to the weapon and the idea behind it. In this context we received the following email:

Hello B&T Team,

my name is Max XXXXX and I am a former member of a special military unit. After my service I moved to Switzerland, where I of course enjoy my shooting hobby a lot.  A while ago I visited a friend of mine who works as gundealer/gunsmith in order to buy a new weapon. I noticed the USW, which looked rather ugly to me at first glance and I didn´t understand the aim and object of the weapon. Not a pistol but also not a submachine gun. The thought about the USW did not let go of me and so I studied the technical data and the idea behind, which then absolutely impressed me. A complete weapon system for all kind of new threats in Europe or around the world, a brilliant idea. I positively fell in love with the USW and bought one. Since then I am more and more enthusiastic about its accuracy, quality and functionality. I wish I would have had such a gun during my time in the military.

Kudos to all involved in the development. In the future the USW will help police officers as well as soldiers to protect the public and to react faster.

Great respect, keep up the good work.

Yours sicerely 

Max XXXXXX

Company Profile

The core competence of B&T is the integration of firearms expertise and state of the art engineering into practical solutions for special military and police users. Expertise is a big word and at B&T we believe it means:

  • Knowledge of the systems the operator is using
  • Knowledge of what the technical benefits and limitations of the current system are
  • Knowledge of what is best value for money for the customer
  • Knowledge of what to propose and from where to procure it
  • Knowledge of how to integrate many different current or perhaps newly designed components into a new tactical system that will meet current mission and requirements

It does not matter what your current weapon system is, B&T has more than 300 different types of firearms in its reference collection, so we can start the development of mounts or other accessories right away.

State of the art engineering competences enable B&T to create and produce the optimal possible tactical solutions for weapon systems. When B&T started in 1991, suppressors were the first product the company produced. Users of suppressors very often needed special optical sights on their weapons, so optical sight mounts for tactical weapons soon became a second product line.

To complement this, B&T introduced a line of Tactical Rail Handguards (TRH), thus increasing the modularity of modern firearms, adapting them to accept laser sights, night vision devices, illumination systems, brass catchers and more.

Many customers would also come to us asking for suitable weapon platforms that were not available from other manufacturers. In summer 2004 B&T started to produce its own line of complete weapons, these include:

  • MP9 9mm submachine gun
  • APR308/338 sniper rifle
  • GL06 40mm grenade launcher
  • APC9 submachine gun
  • APC556/APC300 police carbine
  • APC223 sporting rifle
  • VP9 veterinarian pistol
  • SPR300 urban sniping rifle

As different as these weapons are, they all have something in common; these weapons are genuinely modular, offering many interfaces to accept all accessories that your missions may require.
