THE GLOCK USW-G17 CHASSIS
The folks at B&T have introduced their new chassis for the popular Glock 17, 19, and 23 models. The B&T USW-G-17 conversion kit is a great add-on. It allows the operator to change from the traditional fire to the chassis in seconds. Due to its design, the shooter can use the optional red dot sight or stick with the standard Glock sights. Made from aluminum, it requires no tools to install, and with its non -reciprocating optic bridge, you can mount optics directly to the chassis.
Based in Thun, Switzerland, B&T formerly known as Brügger und Thomet was formed in 1991 by Karl Brugger and Heinrich Thomet and initially manufactured firearm parts and accessories. B&T now produces suppressors for H&K as well as other items for a wide range of weapons. According to their profile, B&T owns over 500 different types of weapons in order to engineer accessories for them. In 2004 they used their outstanding engineering department to start producing their own weapons like the MP9 Submachine gun along with its civilian counterpart the TP9, the APR Sniper rifle, and a 40mm grenade launcher. They add new designs seemingly every month. B&T has evolved into a manufacturer of some of the world’s finest Tactical firearms systems!
The B&T Glock chassis is not a firearm, and therefore not serialized. The Glock Chassis turns your pistol into the Universal Weapon Configuration complete with folding stock for added stability. Check one out and see if you need one of these. Here’s a hint: you do!
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.”
