The AP5, or “Apparatus Pistol,” is a roller delayed blowback firearm based and built off of the original and historical design from the 1970s. One of the reasons the Century Arms MKE AP5 is so widely used is because it has the delayed roller lock blowback action.

The AP5 and AP5-P barrel have a 3-lug quick attachment and 1/2×28 threaded end for suppressor mounting options.
