B&T APC9K M-number?   Small Arms <20mm

Last year B&T won a modest US Army contract for a compact 9mm SMG, the APC9K, to equip Personal Security Details.

Has it been given an M-number yet? I can't find any reference to one on the web.

Not sure it's going to get one.  Has the MP5 ever received an M series designation?  I get the sense that the Army doesn't always assign M designations to limited procurement special-purpose firearms.

Edit: in a little searching, I see US Army field manuals and other documents that refer to the various MP5s in US military service solely by their HK model numbers.  I suspect that the APC9K will be handled the same way.
