B&T just posted photos, a video, and more information about their new BWC Folding Carbine. The BWC stands for “Because We Can” and no, I’m not kidding!

B&T started out as a suppressor manufacturer supplying parts to Heckler & Koch and others. They’re well known for their quality products with Military and Law Enforcement around the world who were purchasing B&T Sub guns. Recently, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department in Florida purchased B&T Carbines for their School Resource Officers.

The new BWC has a similar look to the Magpul folding carbine seen a few years ago. The BWC folds into a small package and can be deployed quickly. The BWC is equipped with a carrying handle, which has an Aimpoint sight mounted underneath. Perhaps the best thing about the BWC is that it is not a regulated part! It’s basically a chassis until you install the Fire Control Unit (FCU) and barrel/slide. In the case of the BWC, the fire control unit used is a drop-in from the SIG P320. Once these are installed, the gun becomes a firearm.

Notice the angle of the stock when deployed. This position gives the shooter a good cheek weld to see through the Aimpoint sight.

B&T has announced on their Instagram account that there will be a limited run of these carbines available later this year, so get on the list and save your money.

B&T has posted pictures and video the of carbine being deployed. They can be seen on YouTube.

That’s all for now folks! Please keep sending in your questions, tips, and article ideas.  And as always – “Let’s Be Careful Out There.”
