Proving again this year that the 10mm is hitting a huge surge in popularity, B&T has debut the APC10. Their pistol ( with brace..ahem) that fires God’s Own pistol round. The sub gun uses the standard Glock 10mm mags. Very cool.
The gun uses a non reciprocal charging handle, a bolt hold open and accepts standard M4 type grips. You can see above the various stocks that will work on it.
There is no doubt the 10mm is back and all of us 10mm fans will benefit from the renewed popularity and development it brings.

The NGSR-AR is expected to replace the M249 squad automatic weapon, while the NGSW-R (Rifle) will replace M4 carbine.
NGSR-AR and NGSW-R are expected to replace the current field weapons in the next several years.
These new weapons are expected to include “sophisticated technologies
such as ballistic calculation, intelligent targeting and tracking
capabilities, wireless communication and advanced camera-based
capabilities,” said Defense Blog.
We’ve noted before, NGSR-AR and NGSW-R’s firepower will be able to
shoot at much greater distances, able to penetrate the world’s most
advanced body armor. The weapons are expected to be lightweight and have
reduced acoustic and flash signature.
Last week, the Special Operation Command (USSOCOM) granted Sig Sauer a safety certification for its new MG 338 Machine Gun, 338 Norma Mag Ammunition, and Next Generation Suppressors.
BLUE FORCE GEAR® ANNOUNCES THE LIGHTEST MOLLE COMPATIBLE SAFETY RESTRAINT BELT EVER MADE
POOLER, GA (January 16, 2020) — Blue Force Gear’s
absolute dedication to Lighten the Load™ for the warfighter has led to
the development of a state-of-the-art, fully MOLLE-compatible belt
system that – incredibly – weighs just half as much as competing brands,
and with a static load rating of 3500lbs (15.5 kN). Intelligent design,
proprietary ULTRAcomp laminate and valuable feedback from elite
professionals all contributed to the success of this belt system, one we
are very proud to bring to market.
“Our new Lightweight MOLLEminus® Belt is the result of many months of
focused design work and nearly daily interaction with our SOF
customers. We listened intently to their evolving needs and the
MOLLEminus Belt is a product of that synergy” said Stephen Hilliard,
Director of Product Development for Blue Force Gear. Constructed using
Blue Force Gear’s proprietary ULTRAcomp® laminate – a layered composite
material – coupled with other technologically advanced components; the
MAB is set to revolutionize how the modern warfighter carries their
Some innovative features include ULTRAcomp® laminate and composite
components that are cut on a bias to provide custom-fit-comfort right
out of the box. A lanyard “hard-point” at the rear of the belt is
positioned for greater safety should the user depend on the restraint
feature, and a matching inner belt is laser perforated for increased
breathability and comfort. All this, and the Lightweight MOLLEminus Belt
still comes in at only 0.65lbs for the inner/outer belt system (size
The composite material sandwiched between the layers of the outer
belt provide more than sufficient stiffness to carry a sidearm, plus
mission essential loads without affecting overall comfort, or
compromising the stability of the system.
Lastly, the MAB is Made in America of Berry compliant materials and will be available 4th quarter, 2019.
