B&T P26 semiautomatic pistol

B&T showcased the P26 9mm caliber semi-automatic pistol at the 2016 SHOT Show
Unlike the European version, the P26 as sold in the United States will not feature a folding stock

First introduced last year at the IWA expo in Nuremberg, Germany, the P26 semiautomatic pistol conceived for close-quarters tactical engagements and personal, home and property defense by the Swiss-based B&T company was showcased at the 2016 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

A locked-breech, blowback-operated design, built around a metallic upper and a polymer lower, the P26 replicates the look and feel of 1980s style “assault pistols” without all their notorious drawbacks and defects – offering instead, in fact, Swiss-grade accuracy and overall quality. The detachable magazine of the P26 holds up to 30 rounds of 9x19mm caliber ammunition, and the gun comes with iron sights and several MIL-STD-1913 “Picatinny” rails for tactical accessories or optics.

At least for once, European shooters are lucky: the P26 has been available now for about one year on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, at prices ranging around 1500€ and featuring a folding stock. The US market variant will be available later on in 2016 for a yet unspecified price, and will come with a lanyard loop in lieu of the stock due to local SBR regulations.
