The Army recently announced the adoption of a new SMG. I learned about this and shared it here on April 1st. It sure felt like a joke.
Finally we get to see some real info about the model the Army is buying. The Military Arms Channel on youtube did a nice video about this B&T SMG. B&T also makes a .40 cal version that uses Glock mags, and a 9mm that uses SIG P320 mags.
I think it looks pretty interesting. You can currently buy a similar (but not the same) B&T 9mm semi auto for about $1800-2000. I imagine that when the semi auto version of what the Army is using comes out, it will be pretty pricey for a while, but after demand from the public dies down it will likely be around $1800ish. I saw a place allowing for preorders at $3100, and I think it would be nuts to pay that much for one.
