Tampa, FL (June 12, 2024) – After extensive development and end user trials, B&T USA is proud to announce the release of its long-awaited SPR86 to the commercial market. A large caliber variant of the venerable SPR300 PRO; the SPR86 chambered in 8.6 Blackout ships as a deployment kit — just add the glass. This kit includes scope rings, a rail extension for clip-on optical devices, two 10-rd magazines, a folding QD bipod, and a padded discreet soft case. The new SPR86 is available in both pistol and SBR configurations; featuring a full-length printed Titanium reflex suppressor system and is SR25/AR10-pattern magazine compatible.

“The original purchasing element of the SPR300 platform required a compact, stowable, precision rifle that was discreet to transport and capable of sub-MOA accuracy out to 150 meters with subsonic ammunition” said Chris Mudgett, Vice President of Marketing for B&T USA. “8.6 Blackout is changing end user requirements thanks to a substantial increase in capability in the form of effective range, intermediate barrier penetration and terminal performance — when compared with 300BLK — without any sacrifice in platform weight or sound/flash performance. With a net increase of just 100 grams and an overall length increase of just over an inch, the SPR86 is the future.”

About the SPR86

Developed off the SPR300 concept, the SPR86 took the lessons learned from its predecessor and upgraded them with a negligible weight increase. Chambered in the 8.6 Blackout cartridge, the platform is capable of accurately launching 300 gr.+ projectiles at subsonic velocities hundreds of meters with precision accuracy. Through extensive testing, the SPR86 has achieved the same levels of accuracy users have come to expect from B&T. MSRP is listed at $5,525 and units will begin shipping 4th quarter 2024.
