The boys from Milcomp visited us in order to test the APC556 PDW. Here is their review:
B&T pistol USW-A1 Compact, Cal. 9x19mm
In order to react to the quickly changing threats faced by police forces all over Europe, especially those threats presented by terrorist, law enforcement needs to quickly rethink its armament. The recent terroristic attacks have proven, today’s police side arms are not able to cope with an opponent armed with military assault rifles and bomb vests.
This is the main reason for the development of the Universal Service Weapon (USW). It was to designed to be a weapon which enables the first responder, thus the normal patrol officer, to intervene effectively in the event of a terrorist event. It is also a sidearm that is suitable for every kind of “normal” police work.
The USW-A1 Compact is the perfect choice for all those who carry their weapon concealed (protection teams, Air Marshals, undercover cops, intelligence, etc.)
Versions of this weapon that comply with country-specific regulations for end users are available. Please contact the B&T Distributor in your country (http://www.bt-ag.ch/kontakt/distributoren), within Switzerland the B&T shops.
