In a recent article, TFB wrote about the experiences with regards to Long Range Shooting with handguns in general and the B&T Universal Service Weapon (USW) specifically.

For the European market, it is now time for another addition to the B&T USW line.

Owners of the Walther PPQ pistol will be happy to know that they can now add a B&T chassis and possibly reach out even farther.

Below: Aimpoint ACRO on top, B&T USA chassis around a Walther PPQ.

The USW-PPQ conversion kit is the ultimate add on for the Walther PPQ.

It offers the operator the choice of using the pistol in the traditional way as well as with the built in folding stock, while the transition only requires less than a mere second.

Due to its elaborated design, the operator can mount an optionally available red dot sight on top of the chassis and use the original open sights as back up.

The red dot sight may not be mounted on the slide.

Here is what it is all about:

Delivery Instruction manual, sling loop, NAR/Picatinny adapter
Length min./max. 273 mm / 522 mm
Width 55 mm
Height 119 mm
Weight ca. 500 g
Material Alumnium, Polymer
Color schwarz
Primary Sighting System Aimpoint ACRO P-1 (optional)
Secondary Sighting System PPQ original open sights
NAR Rails 1 + 1
Side (r/l) Universal
Surface treatment anodized

You can find a direct link to the Swiss B&T webshop here.

The price is 391.50 CHF, which equals about 392 USD (more or less 1:1 ratio between the two currencies) or 356 Euro.

Again, please note that this product is only available in Europe at this stage. B&T cannot tell if this chassis is going to be available in the USA.

As an alternative, for those who run a Glock.
