Tampa, FL – After making front-page news at SHOT Show 2017, the Swiss designed and built USW (Universal Service Weapon) first introduced in Europe in 2016 is now available to both law enforcement professionals and commercial customers in the United States. This revolutionary weapon is more than a 9mm pistol, it represents an entirely new category of firearms systems designed to fill the gap between submachine gun and 9mm police carbine.
The USW-A1 was designed to specifically meet the needs of today’s law enforcement professionals, who face challenges that far exceed the capabilities of even today’s most sophisticated pistols, and who during specific conflict situations do not have the time to reach for their standard issue carbine rifle. Now first responders, in most cases patrol officers, can intervene in any sudden event with more stable rapid fire, greater accuracy, and longer range than a standard 9mm semi-automatic pistol.
Taking advantage of an integral spring-loaded folding stock and custom Aimpoint Nano red dot sight, the user can deploy an extremely accurate pistol carbine in as little as 1.5 seconds from its own custom Level 3 polymer holster. The USW-A1 is capable of 1.6″ groups at a range of approximately 27 yards, or 40mm groups at 25 meters. Adding to its stability is a fixed bridge mount for the Aim point Nano, keeping the sight stationery during cycling of the gun.
With the stock folded, the USW-A1 can function as a standard holstered sidearm.
The USW-A1 is available with 17, 19, and 30-round double stack magazines, and can easily be configured with B&T’s own Impuls-11A® Suppressor. All NFA rules and State and Federal laws apply. Read more
