What gets women to the range? For one, guns that are easily transportable and feature accessories that make them easy to unpack, unfold and unload. This pretty much describes Smith & Wesson’s new 9mm M&P Folding Pistol Carbine (FPC). With a length of 30⅜” and a compact folded length of 16⅜“, the optics-ready FPC comes equipped with three double-stack M&P pistol magazines, including one 17-round and two 23-round mags. This new carbine 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.

Smith & Wesson’s goal was to design a pistol carbine that was compatible with various M&P series pistol magazines, according to John Myles, senior manager of new products. “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,” he said, adding that “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.”

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 palmswells for maximum comfort. The M&P FPC also comes with a carrying bag designed with multiple hook-and-loop storage compartments to secure additional equipment for easy transport. And the made-in-America pistol itself is not the only thing that is compact: The gun boasts a budget-friendly MSRP of only $659.00.
