The AP-9 is a pistol that was manufactured by A. A. Arms and distributed by Kimel Industries, Inc of Indian Trail, North Carolina. A. A. Arms began manufacturing the AP-9 in the late 1980s and did so until 1994. The AP-9 resembles the TEC-9.
The standard AP-9 has a 5-inch barrel; the AP-9 target began with a 12-inch barrel (Target AP-9), but this was later reduced to 11 inches (AP-9/11 Target); they both have a separate fore end and a fluted barrel. These firearms were banned by most states after the passage of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban. After the Assault Weapons Ban of 1994 a ten-round magazine was introduced. Original magazines included 10-round and 20-round capacities.
