At the 2015 edition of the EnforceTac expo − a side event of the yearly IWA OutdoorClassics show in Nuremberg (Germany) − Swiss-based B&T AG showcased two new large-frame semi-automatic pistols, offering a high volume of fire and a strikingly aggressive design for deterrence, conceived for sports shooting, personal and property protection, and for private security personnel use.

Law enforcement applications in those jurisdictions where standard Police personnel has no access to full-automatic firearms should however also been taken into consideration: particularly, these designs would fit very well in the hard bag of a Police motorcycle, providing first responders with a compact and high-power force multiplier.


Vaguely inspired by George Kellgren's late 1970's vintage Interdynamic KG99 (and by the later, notably inferior TEC-9), the B&T P26 semi-automatic pistol is built with the highest available technologies and the tightest tolerances, and is meant to be vastly superior to both in accuracy, performance, and quality.

A closed-bolt, blowback-operated, semi-automatic firearm, the B&T P26 pistol feeds through the same double-stack clear polymer magazines of the APC-9 sub-machinegun − holding 15, 20, 25 or 30 rounds of 9x19mm Parabellum ammunition − and sports Ghost Ring type sights, a top MIL-STD-1913 "Picatinny" rail for optics and shorter rails at 3-o'clock, 6-o'clock and 9-o'clock accessory rails on the dust cover.

Built around a polymer-coated lightweight alloy structure, the B&T P26 semi-automatic pistol comes with a 17,5cm and an innovative buffer system that reduces felt recoil to a minimum, allowing the shooters to obtain tight groups at the maximum practical distances even in rapid-fire sequences. The B&T P26 semi-automatic pistol is 63,1cm long overall with its stock open and 40,1cm long overall with its stock folded; it is 2,3 kilograms heavy, when unloaded, and its trigger weight ranges around 2,7 kilograms.

The B&T KH9 semi-automatic pistol, even more boxy and sporting an even higher deterrent potential than the P26, shares most of its features − a side-folding stock; a top MIL-STD-1913 "Picatinny" rail for optics and other, shorter accessory rails around the Dust Cover; a closed-bolt, blowback working system − but its main feature is indeed a SA/DA trigger pull: a disconnecting switch allows the user to decock the gun; the B&T KH9 can thus be carried in full safety but... without the safety on. The first show will then be fired in double-action, just like on most modern hammer-fired pistols.


The B&T KH9 semi-automatic pistol comes with a 15,3cm long barrel, is 40,4cm long overall with the stock folded and 63,3cm long overall with the stock unfolded. The overall weight ranges around 2,45 kilograms; the trigger weight is merely 1 kilogram, providing for extreme fast-firing capabilities; other features include a top cocking handle and factory-issued, folding, adjustable front and rear sights.

The B&T KH9 semi-automatic pistol is chambered for the 9x19mm Parabellum caliber, and feeds through Suomi 50-rounds quad-stack magazines. Each KH9 is issued with an adapter that allows the use of the same 15, 20, 25 and 30-rounds clear polymer magazines of the B&T APC-9 sub-machinegun.

Both the B&P KH9 and P26 semi-automatic pistols will be released in June 2015; no indication has been provided regarding availability and pricing in any specific Country.
