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 SMG APC45 Classic cal. .45 ACP

For those who prefer larger diameter handgun cartridges, the APC45 Classic is the perfect choice. It is not only one of the lightest and most compact .45 SMGs on the market, but due to its internal hydraulic buffer it is the most pleasant to shoot. The buffer also gives the shooter tight shot groups when short bursts fired.
