The AAC Honey Badger PDW is a personal defense weapon based on the AR-15. It is chambered in .300 AAC Blackout and produced by Advanced Armament Corporation, a subsidiary of Freedom Group. The weapon is named after the honey badger.

Both the rifle and the caliber used were developed in close cooperation with American special operations units to create a suitable and effective replacement for the HK MP5 and similar close quarters combat weapon systems. The rifle is designed to be very convenient for military use where AR-15s are issued and in common use, since many similarities would exist in the fire controls, weapon manipulation, and magazines.

The Honey Badger was developed with a standard M4 upper and lower receiver, a short barrel with a very short gas impingement system and fast rate of rifling twist, integrated detachable customized suppressor, and a proprietary buffer tube and collapsible stock.
