Moving to offer a DMR option in their APC rifle series, Florida-based B&T USA had their new APC308 variant on display at SHOT Show in Las Vegas last week.
A step up from their APC223 models, the new .308 Win caliber rifles feature the same locked, rotating bolt and short-stroke gas piston operating system as their little brothers. With barrel options in 14.3- and 18-inches, the APC308 carbine is also available with either a folding or fixed length-adjustable stock. Weight varies across the variants between 8.59- and 10.58-pounds, including standard folding iron sights and a 20-round magazine.
