    I've become infatuated with these 9mil sub guns, especially in SBR form. Back in mid October a Swiss made B&T APC9 was ordered from the local gun shop. The gun finally arrived a couple of weeks ago, but I was also waiting for a low mount for the optic before using the gun. A folding stock will be installed whenever the ATF decides to approves the application. A three lug suppressor adapter is enroute.

    I'm on the way to the range and wanted to take a few pics before the gun gets mucked up. I've included a Glock 17 a size reference. YouTube has several good shooting vids, so unless something unexpected occurs I'll most like report the gun operates smoothly and reliably. These guns reach their potential with a stock and as a pistol they are slightly unwieldy. Today, I'll test the gun with different ammo and sight the optic.

    Are you asking if it uses the proprietary mags from another company or it's own proprietary mags?

    OK, I'll bite

    What's the square button looking thing between the rear of the magwell and the trigger guard. Looks like the mag release can be pushed with the trigger finger much like an AR, which gives me question to what the button is.

    Takedown lever maybe????

    The gun only uses generic mags that work in models MP9, TP9, APC9, P26 and KH9.
