Adaptive Carbine Platform for Pistols

Sig Sauer has been rolling out a lot of new handguns and rifles for 2012 but they’re releasing some great new accessories too.

The Advaptive Carbine Platform (ACP for short), is a set up to accept about any railed pistol.

Adaptive Carbine Platform Standard

Adaptive Carbine Platform Enhanced

LE Adaptive Carbine Platform

See Sig’s video describing the Adaptive Carbine Platform:

Below is Sig Sauer’s full press release for the Adaptive Carbine Platform:

SIG SAUER® Adaptive Carbine Platform Extends Pistol Utility

Universal platform mounts to handguns with an accessory rail

EXETER, NH (January 2012) —The SIG SAUER Adaptive Carbine Platform (ACP) allows any handgun with an accessory rail to be quickly modified into a personal defense weapon or submachine gun-style firearm. Regardless of the brand, most pistols equipped with an accessory rail can be mounted to the ACP without the need for modification to the base gun.

Fabricated from solid aircraft-grade aluminum, the ACP sports M1913 rails at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions with a full-length top rail at the 12 o’clock position. Compatible accessories such as lights, red dot sights and lasers can be mounted for additional functionality.

“The ACP brings Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) features to almost any handgun,” said Bud Fini, SIG SAUER Vice President of Marketing. “For law enforcement or executive protection details looking for the quick deployment of a submachine gun, but with the controllability of a handgun, the ACP offers everything in one package.”

An integral hand stop permits the user to get a forward grip without the danger of covering the muzzle. The integral quick-detachable sling mounts allow an ACP-equipped pistol to be carried on a sling for fast access.

The new SIG SAUER ACP allows the shooter access to the pistol’s frame mounted controls, providing an easy training transition and familiar manual of arms. The ACP is also compatible with most sound suppressors.

The ACP is available in three models:

  • ACP – This basic model allows for fast, easy conversion and works with most railed pistols.
  • ACP-Enhanced – The Enhanced version includes the new SIG SAUER MIL-GRADE Mini Red Dot Sight, a quick detachable sling swivel and a Single Point Bungee Sling.
  • ACP-LE – This National Firearms Act-regulated military/law enforcement model features a top- folding shoulder stock. Civilian purchasers must comply with the requirements for registering a short-barreled rifle.


Update 1-13-2012

There are two more versions of the Adaptive Carbine Platform – the ACP-CPL and ACP-ZK.

The ACP-CPL is the Adaptive Carbine Platform with single point bungee sling and compact pistol laser (Sig’s CPL-RM-R). MSRP on the ACP-CPL is $479

The CPL-ZK, aka, Zombie Killer, is the Adaptive Carbine Platform with the compact pistol laser mentioned just above, single point bungee sling, and Zombie Killer hard sided zipper case. MSRP is not available but I estimate it at about $539.

    Thanks for letting folks know about this ACP – I like the concept. I have read articles about using a sling to shoot a pistol accurately as if it has a stock. Haven’t tried it, but the principle seems sound.

    Always appreciate Osage’s commitment to providing great timely info. Even though you are a little drive from St. Louis, the service and selection is super. I really enjoyed my purchasing experience, and will certainly be a repeat customer. This might be my next purchase! What will the retail price be for the ACP?

  2. January 12th, 2012 at 08:02 | #2

    Suggested retail on the ACP-P is $369 and the upgraded version is $499.

    When is this going to be available ?@SigSauerGuns

  7. January 31st, 2012 at 10:54 | #7

    Will this platform fit the H&K P2000?

  9. February 3rd, 2012 at 08:21 | #9

    I’m not 100% sure. I’ll try to find out. The H&K P2000 does have an accessory rail but since I haven’t been able to really test the ACP, I can’t say if it will work on a pistol with a short accessory rail or if it requires a more full size pistol.

    Will the ACP-ZK fit a H & K P30L pistol??

  11. February 6th, 2012 at 08:22 | #11

    It should fit on the P30L.

    February 18th, 2012 at 10:39 | #12

    How about 1911s? Specifically, 1911s with an extended beavertail grip safety.

    any additional info on availability?

  14. February 21st, 2012 at 12:36 | #14

    It sounds like we’ll see them in another two or three months.

  15. February 21st, 2012 at 12:37 | #15

    It should accept a railed 1911 with beavertail.

  16. February 21st, 2012 at 12:37 | #16

    The model without stock should ship with or before the SBR version.

    will the ACP fit a Springfield XDM 5.25?

  18. February 21st, 2012 at 16:02 | #18

    @M Kramer
    I believe it will. I’ll see if I can get a confirmation.

    What about H&K USP that has a different rail style with no cross slot?

    will this work with my p220? How would I buy one?

  23. April 14th, 2012 at 06:55 | #23

    It will work on a railed P220. We don’t have them in stock yet but we’ll post updates when we receive them.

    err i mean .357 sig

  30. July 17th, 2012 at 07:13 | #30

    There is a LE versin but I do not believe Sig will sell the stock separately.

  31. July 17th, 2012 at 07:13 | #31

    It will fit the P229 and I believe both Glocks but I would recommend calling the factory to verify compatibility with the Glock. I have only heard of issues with H&K pistols so far.

  32. July 17th, 2012 at 07:14 | #32

    I’m waiting for a response from Sig on the Hi-Point.

    I ordered the ACP specifically for my HK 45 USP Tactical. Much to my dismay to find that is does not fit. Too long. Did not fit my Springfield XM 45 either. Do you have to buy a Sig to insure this thing really works????

  34. August 6th, 2012 at 07:05 | #34

    I’d suggest calling Sig Sauer and making an inquiry. I believe they were working on an adapter to accommodate some of the H&K pistols.

  35. Sa Graham
    October 13th, 2012 at 11:59 | #35

    Has a successful adapter been developed to accomodate the HK USP 45? I have read several articles recently on the topic but the articles are not recent inquiries.

    It should!

  40. June 28th, 2013 at 10:00 | #40

    It will work on a P250 compact with rail.
