Smith & Wesson Announces M&P FPC 9mm Carbine


Smith & Wesson has just announced the M&P FPC, a new ultra-compact 9mm pistol-caliber carbine that can be folded in half.

Pistol-caliber carbines, or PCCs, continue to be extremely popular, and Smith & Wesson has just thrown its hat into the ring as well with the announcement of the M&P FPC. The new carbine is chambered for 9mm, accepts double-stack M&P pistol magazines and can be folded in half for compact storage or transport.


The stand-out feature of the M&P FPC is its horizontal folding mechanism that can bring the overall length from about 30 inches down to about 16 inches. Because optics are mounted to a Picatinny rail on top of the M-LOK handguard, folding the carbine doesn’t interfere with one’s sights like on some other folding 9mm PCC designs. When folded, the charging handle on the buffer tube (which houses an integrated recoil buffer system) doubles as a locking latch.


Other notable features of the M&P FPC include a 1/2×28 threaded muzzle, a flat-faced trigger and an in-stock magazine storage compartment that can hold two spare mags. The carbine also has a cross-bolt safety, a reversible magazine catch and is compatible with M&P pistol palmswell grip adaptors. Each M&P FPC will ship with a 17-round mag, two 23-round mags and a carrying case with Velcro straps for transporting the carbine while folded.


John Myles, Senior Manager of New Products at Smith & Wesson, said this about the M&P FPC:

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…

The Smith & Wesson M&P FPC is available now and has an MSRP of $659.
