First Look: B&T USA SPR300 PRO in .300 BLK
The .300 Blackout is a versatile cartridge that is specifically designed to be used with suppressed firearms. Now B&T USA is releasing the next generation in their SPR300 (Special Purpose Rifle 300BLK) series of guns, the SPR300 PRO.
The SPR300 PRO is chambered for .300 BLK (7.62×35 mm) and is built with a 9.8-inch barrel with 1:8-inch twist rate for maximum accuracy at distance out to 165 yards. The SPR300 PRO platform also has a foldable, fully adjustable stock, an extended top rail that is designed to accept clip-on night vision/thermal devices and prisms as well as a quick-detach bipod and a thread-on suppressor.
“Due to increased demand, the SPR300 has jumped the line to receive our updated PRO treatment. The new PRO version features an updated chassis, accepts AR-pattern magazines, features a Timney match trigger and has a new folding stock assembly compatible with the myriad of AR/M4-style stock models available today” said Jon Scott, Vice President of Sales, B&T USA.
“The SPR300 has an incredible reputation as a whisper quiet precision rifle originally developed for European special mission’s units, who have allegedly used the platform to great success as a discreet, urban precision rifle, that boasts comparable sound and flash signature to that of an air rifle.”
Because of its precision Swiss engineering, the SPR300 PRO can be broken down for transport and quickly reassembled in the field or at the range with no change in point of impact. The SPR300 PRO has a durable hard anodized, aircraft aluminum receiver for reduced weight, a Timney single-stage Hunter Elite trigger that is adjustable from 1.5 to 4 pounds, M-Lok accessory slots, a three-position safety selector as well as a cocked bolt indicator.
