This looks like it would be a fun little toy!
There’s a new B&T firearm just released on the Swiss B&T website, literally minutes ago.
The GHM9 Compact is available in Switzerland and the EU, and it looks sexy. Will it come to the US?
We know that B&T release their firearms nationally first, then within the EU.
Most of the time B&T also release their new firearms in the USA as well, so it is fair to assume that it will happen soon with the GHM9 Compact as well.
There is a also a rumor that B&T will start manufacturing of firearms in the USA, but they have to be sure that the quality is maintained as the Swiss quality they are known and respected for.
The price is 1,600 Swiss Francs, which would be about the same in USD. Frankly I don’t think this is expensive at all, it seems cheap for a firearm manufactured in Switzerland and I would buy one in an instant if the Government allowed me.
The GHM9 compact, as described by B&T (and as auto-translated by Google).
The GHM9 Compact is a sporty 9 x 19 mm carbine with an integrated folding shoulder rest. The GHM9 Compact is perfect as a cheap and sporty semi-automatic for dynamic disciplines but also just for fun shooting.
Note the possibility to add a suppressor, another B&T specialty.

You can get the GHM9 Compact with sound suppressor (signature suppressor), double magazine(clamped) and telescopic stock. You’ve heard me say this before, it’s a great stock. Aimpoint Micro on top.
