This is a lesson in minimalism from the established masters in Switzerland and now it’s cheaper.
This gun was more than $2250 when it launched.So yes, just yes! Get this gun and you will love it more than you ever should.
It’s a tiny, elegant and deadly 9mm semi-automatic and is essentially the civilian version of the favored weapon of the Swiss Army and Italian special forces.
A Civilian Version Of Swiss Army Sub-Machine Gun
That’s the civvy version of the SITES Spectre M4, the fully automatic weapon that could, theoretically, go to war.
You get the Apple of the 9mm AR pistols world as a payoff. It’s really that pretty a gun.
Lightweight CQB Weapon For Indoors and Out
It weighs just over 5lb, you get two 30-round magazines with it and, well just take a moment to look at it. It’s 13 inches long, in total, and the barrel is 6.2 inches.
It’s rare to see a gun that looks fragile. It isn’t, but the B&T KH9 is such a slender weapon that it makes the rest of the them look fat and dumpy.
Over Engineered Like A Swiss Watch
The Swiss are famous for their watches and you get the same obsessional over-engineering at every stage in this gun too. It’s just a Swiss hallmark.
It is smaller than you can actually imagine at first sight and nestles into your shoulder with a folding stock. Without it, you really could fire this gun with one hand. It’s a real Sig Sauer MPX rival, but so much prettier.
Aside from that every detail is perfect, every surface flush and every screw should stand the test of time.
Just 400 B&T KH9s Imported. And They’re Sold Out
It’s also a seriously limited edition and yours is one of 400 imported into the States if you acted in time. If not, don’t feel too bad.
Some people like the bragging rights. Others will know they own a precision and handbuilt weapon that is better than almost anything on the market right now.
Cheaper Than HK, Pricier Than Sig Sauer
It comes with a premium price tag, but it compares more than favorably with the HK SP5. Sig Sauer’s MPX is cheaper, but then this is a premium gun from the moment it comes out the wrapper.
You get a ‘recoil-reduced closed bolt blowback’ action and a three-lug muzzle adapter so you can fit a suppressor easily and securely.
Fitted with a suppressor you can ping quietly away all day at the range and you can also dress the gun up with a tactical lamp and a red dot sight.
A Near Concealed Carry SMG
It’s such a lightweight, well designed gun that we can see it finding its way into top flight private security work. It’s just perfect for the job.
It could also be the perfect weapon for home defence and a piece of modern art, all at the same time.
We think this is a future collector’s item and you’ll love every moment on the firing range with it until then.
And if you didn’t get one in time, well you can still get a B&T 9mm pistol. We love the B&T TP9, which we think bridges the gap between the traditional AR9 and a tactical pistol.
We have a lot more 9mm AR-15 pistols here, by the way, and a selection of 5.56 AR Pistols and 300 Blackout pistols if you want something different. Be warned, B&T features heavily on most of them. Near the top too…
