Review of the APC556 PDW by Milcomp


The boys from Milcomp visited us in order to test the APC556 PDW. Here is their review:

B&T assault rifle APC556, Cal. 5.56 mm x 45

Designed to meet the future needs of Police and Military forces worldwide, the APC556 is a rugged but light carbine. It perfectly covers the demands of urban or rural police work as well as the challenges the special forces operator faces in today’s asymmetrical conflicts.
