Teaser photos of the B&T USW-320 have been circulating around the interwebs for a few months now. We should have covered it but sometimes these things slip through the cracks. Basically it’s a stripped polymer pistol frame that accepts SIG P320 parts.
The best part of the design: the serialized part in the modular design P320 is the fire control group housing. That means you can buy a P320 and enjoy it while you wait for your federal From 1 permission slip to come in. You can also move the fire control group hosing between different weapons and have only one serialized part.
Delivery The scope of delivery consits only of the lower frame with integrated folding stock but without any attached or built in parts.
Width 43 mm (1.7 inches)
Weight 188 g (6.6 oz) Lower with folding stock
Stock Length of Pull 360 mm (14.2 inches)
NAR Rails 1

Shoulder stock Foldable
Remarks Available from April 2018 on
The frame sells for a penny under $300 and is available in your choice of black and tactical peanut butter.
Based on B&T’s track record for design and build quality, this could end up being an excellent,affordable SBR platform. No, it doesn’t take GLOCK mags and you can’t get a version with a brace. See the comment section for the obligatory drop safety jokes.
