Never too old to be accurate


If you buy a new rifle at the age of 77, you must be an avid shooter. And normally you won’t expect from someone that old to buy a military looking self-loading rifle. But Hermann Ohnheiser liked the APC223. Just a few days after he picked the rifle up, he proved beyond any doubt, that he made an excellent choice. Shooting five round groups from a bench at 100 m, using GGG ammunition in .223 Rem from Lithuania, he shot a group of 12 x 12 mm. Changing the ammunition to S&B 55 grs he improved his already excellent result with a group of 7 x 8 mm. In order to archive such an outstanding result it needs a very accurate rifle like the APC223, a good scope but also an outstanding shooter. And this at the age of 77. B&T has only one thing to say: RESPECT!

B&T Universal Service Weapon - USW-A1, Kal. 9 x 19 mm

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.
