Sig Sauer ACP Turns Semi-Auto Handguns into Carbines

The Sig Sauer Adaptive Carbine Platform (ACP) is an “aircraft grade aluminum pistol to carbine adapter.”

The ACP is “universal,” and therefore accepts the most popular brands of railed semi-automatic handguns–not just Sig Sauers.

The ACP comes in three configurations: Standard ($279), Enhanced ($399), and Law Enforcement ($399).

The standard model is the ACP by itself; the “Enhanced” gets you the ACP plus a Sig Sauer red-dot scope and a sling; and the law enforcement credentials is the ACP with a folding stock that turns the carbine into a weapon that requires law enforcement clearance or a federal stamp for ownership.

Breitbart News reviewed the “Enhanced” version. We inserted a Sig Sauer 2022 9mm into the ACP with no problem–the ACP comes with clear instructions. With the pistol locked into place we then racked the charge handle on ACP which simultaneously chambered a round in the gun–from there shooting was elementary. 

The only difficult aspect with the ACP was sighting in the red dot scope, but that could be a reflection on my lackluster sighting skills. 

The ACP feels “meaty” in a shooter’s hands, and it provides leverage for the shooter to steady his or her shots. 

The ACP has “M1913 rails at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions, with a full length rail at the 12 o’clock position.” This makes it easy to compliment the red dot scope with a flashlight and/or laser. 

The ACP is not option for those seeking a handgun. Rather, it is option for those who already have a handgun and would like a carbine as well.
