Smith & Wesson’s new M&P FPC is a compact, side-folding 9 mm carbine with M&P pistol controls, along with M&P magazine compatibility.
The company introduced this new folding pistol carbine on Tuesday, February 28. As mentioned, the M&P FPC is chambered in 9 mm, and it is also optics-ready. With an unfolded length of 30⅜ inches and a compact folded length of 16⅜ inches, the M&P FPC also 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, plus the ability to carry two additional M&P magazines in the stock. A quick-release tab system is used for in-stock magazine storage.
The horizontal folding mechanism of the M&P FPC provides a locking latch to enable secured transport and prevents interference with the majority of top-mounted optics or accessories.

The M&P FPC also comes with a carrying bag sporting multiple storage compartments for stowing extra equipment.
