Featured Miami Vice – B&T’s APC9K Chosen by Miami Beach Police Travis Pike April 11, 2020 Join the Conversation In a move that will surprise the submachine-guns-are-dead crowd, the Miami Beach Police Department has purchased the B&T APC9K Pro platforms for a specialized role in the department. The guns are outfitted with B&T three-lug QD suppressor and Aimpoint sighting systems. Making this choice even more interesting, their APC9Ks will sport the SIG P320-compatible lower receiver groups. The Miami Beach Police Department carries the P320 handgun. The adoption of the APC9K Pro Platform with the P320 magwell is a smart move all around. This has been the first purchase of the APC9K Pro Platform with the P320 magwell compatibility. The P320 has quickly become a law enforcement and military favorite. That popularity will likely cause this particular APC9K Pro platform to grow. “B&T has a long history of supplying local, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies with top-tier products, and we are honored to provide Miami Beach Florida Police Department with B&T's specialized equipment to help them with their challenging assignments,” stated Tim Nickler, President and CEO, B&T USA. The city of Miami Beach is rather large with over 100,000 full-time residents. During peak tourist season, that number grows to 3 million people. B&T and their premium grade products are growing in popularity around the United States, and like the P320, they've also had a good bit of success with the United States Army. After a heated competition, the United States Army chose the B&T APC9K as their submachine gun of choice for special security roles last year.
