Smith & Wesson is introducing a new folding pistol carbine to their catalogue, the M&P FPC.

Chambered in 9mm, the FPC is optic-ready has a length of 30 ⅜ inches and can be folded to a compact length of 16 ⅜ inches. The folding mechanism of the FPC includes a locking latch to facilitate secure transport and does not interfere with most top-mounted optics.

“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 palmswell grip adaptors all make this new pistol carbine a great addition to the M&P family,” said John Myles, Senior Manager of New Products.

The FPC comes with three double-stack M&P pistol magazines, including one 17-round and two 23-round mags. It also features an integrated recoil buffer system, ½-28 threaded muzzle and in-stock magazine storage.

Additionally, the FPC includes a handguard with four interchangeable palmswells, a flat-face trigger single-action trigger and Picatinny and M-LOK slots for mounting accessories. The FPC also comes with a carrying bag with multiple Velcro storage compartments to secure additional equipment.

The new folding carbine is made in the U.S.A. and has an MSRP of $659.00. For more information on the new M&P FPC visit www.smith-wesson.com.
