Compact 9mm Carbines are insanely popular for a number of reasons. For outdoorsmen and ranchers, they are great tools to have as part of your toolset for hunting, post control, and even self-defense should the need arise. Smith & Wesson has just announced their own addition to the category with the introduction of the new M&P FPC or Folding Pistol Carbine. The FPC is a 9mm blowback PCC that takes standard Smith & Wesson M&P magazines and will also come complete with its own carrying case, two 23-round magazines, and an additional 17-round magazine.

The New Foldable Smith & Wesson FPC 9mm Folding Pistol Carbine
The new Smith & Wesson M&P Folding Pistol Carbine (FPC) features a handy and compact folding design that folds from right to left and the barrel/handguard is then held in place using a friction fit with the ambidextrous charging handle. The PCC comes standard with a stock that can accommodate two additional M&P magazines of any size and the entire package still folds down into a compact 16-3/8″ package. The barrel is threaded 1/2×29 and much like other folding PCCs on the market, I can assume that the FPC will also make a great suppressor host.
The Folding Pistol Carbine also comes with a carrying case that features extra storage space for accessories, ammunition, and magazines. The FPC comes standard with one 17-round and two additional 23-round magazines that feature handy extensions. James Reeves of TFBTV has already put the new FPC through the wringer and has a lot of good things to say about it, if you’re interested in watching his full initial impressions range review you can check it out below.
