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.
