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 semi-automatic rifle APC223, Cal. .223 Rem

The APC223, the civilian version of the highly respected APC556 is the perfect choice for the range. The Short version with its truncated barrel is the perfect choice for shooters in need of a compact rifle for dynamic shooting disciplines.
