Smith & Wesson’s New 9mm Pistol Carbine: M&P Folding Pistol Carbine
Smith & Wesson’s new 9mm folding pistol carbine, the M&P FPC is c,hambered in 9mm. The optics-ready FPC has a length of 30 ⅜ inches and a compact folded length of 16 ⅜ inches. It comes equipped with three double-stack M&P pistol magazines, including one 17-round and two 23-round mags.
The FPC features an integrated recoil buffer system, ½-28 threaded muzzle, and in-stock magazine storage for making reloading fast and efficient. The horizontal folding mechanism of the FPC provides a locking latch to enable secured transport and prevents interference with most top-mounted optics or accessories.
“The team at Smith & Wesson aimed to design a pistol carbine that was compatible with various M&P series pistol magazines. We exceeded that initial desire by introducing side-folding mechanics that deliver a unique compact feature and allow the user to keep their sight system mounted on the gun both in the folded and extended positions. Extra magazine storage in the buttstock, familiar M&P fire controls and reliable palm swell grip adaptors all make this new pistol carbine a great addition to the M&P family,” said John Myles, Senior Manager of New Products.
Additional features include a handguard with an upper Picatinny rail and M-LOK® slots for accessory mounting capabilities, a flat-face trigger design that offers a crisp single-action trigger break, and four interchangeable palm swells for maximum comfort. The M&P FPC also comes with a carrying bag designed with multiple Velcro® storage compartments to secure additional equipment for easy transport. This new folding pistol carbine is proudly made in the U.S.A. and has an MSRP of $659.00.
