B&T GHM9: The Best Budget 9mm AR?

B&T GHM9 Gen 2 for sale. A bargain 9mm PCC you need in your life.

B&T GHM9 For Sale

  • Price: $1,299
  • Caliber: 9mm
  • Capacity: 30+1

You know by know that we love B&T guns round this place. Brugger & Thomet is a Swiss company that makes some of our favorite guns, but they were always expensive.

The GHM9 has the answer for that. It’s a cheaper, more straightforward B&T handgun for sale that is based on the KH9, but isn’t quite as well finished.

Still, it’s priced competitively compared to the Sig Sauer MPX . It’s less than half the retail price of the new HK SP5 and a third of the real world prices. Also, the CZ Scorpion is firmly in its sights.

GHM means Grass Hopper Mouse. Guess what they eat? Yes! Scorpions…

Weirdly specific, huh?

A Cheapish B&T? Shut Up and Take My Money

This is a gun that you don’t need to justify, it’s just about cheap enough and it’s a B&T. It’s Swiss, it’s perfect and every screw feels solid. This is a mil-spec gun and it leaves the Scorpion in its wake.

The Sig Sauer is a definite rival, but this gun might even have the edge. This in-depth review reckons that the Swiss gun is a better option than the legendary Sig Sauer and could be the best pistol-caliber carbine on the market right now.

The reviewer even bought one following this test, and at this price you can too.

It’s a blowback set-up with a hydraulic buffer, which means it’s a pussycat when it comes to recoil.

Same Basic Internals as B&T KH9

The basics are all there, the barrel and working parts are the same as the KH9. The packaging, though, makes it looks more like an Android and less like an Apple. It weighs in at 6lb, there’s a lot more polymer and less cool metal and yet it still looks like a B&T weapon.

It’s a 9mm, 30+1 round assault pistol, if you want to go with that name. The barrel length is just 6.9 inches and as B&T is the Swiss military supplier, and a supplier to elite fighting units all round the world, they have the right brace, stock or suppressor to suit your needs.

Here it is in action.

Every B&T is a modular system that you can turn into the perfect gun for your exact needs with the right accessories. They include tactical elements like dual magazines that really give you 60 rounds, plus one…

BT GHM9 Dual Magazine. An interesting accessory that gives you 60 rounds. That should be enough...

Not Too Expensive for An AR9 Pistol

It still isn’t cheap, but then at just over $1,300, it’s not crazy money either. I have celebrated the fact that the KH9 was reduced to $1850 like they were giving us a present. I do maintain, though, that that gun is one of the prettiest AR-style or tactical pistols to hit the open market.

It is sold out now, but have another look at the B&T KH9 for sale.

B&T KH9 for sale. It's one of the best AR9 pistols of recent times. Definitely, if you can find one, it's one of the best 9mm AR pistols in 2020.

When you’re done there, have a look at the B&T TP9, which you can still buy. It’s like a modern-day, semi-automatic Uzi, but when you fit a stock to it then you can consistently group your shots at 100 yards. That makes this the ultimate tactical pistol as far as I’m concerned, but sadly that never slipped beneath $1830 either.

B&T TP9 for sale. One of the best 9mm SMGs you can buy in semi-auto form. It's also a killer tactical pistol, in a way.

B&T TP9 is an Icon Round Here

The B&T TP9 is a budget 9mm assault weapon from some of the best in the business, with the inner working components of the brilliant KH9 and some cheaper wrapping paper.

These Swiss guns are so well balanced that they really are miniature assault weapons and the TP9 even straps to a unique leg holster. It’s innovative, and we love that.

Owners will tell you, too, that if you put a brace and a red dot on this pistol then you’ve got a seriously accurate and effective weapon for home defense. it’s a 9mm legal SBR with minimal recoil, so anybody in the family can handle this weapon. In the right circumstances, then, it’s a lifesaver.

Other Legendary B&T Firearms

Take a look at the B&T APC45 Pro, too, if you want 45 ACP ammo and more stopping power.
