Magpul FMG-9

| Saturday, August 20, 2011 | 1 comments

The Magpul FMG-9 is a new generation of folding submachine guns, designed by Magpul Industries in 2008. It looks like an industrial torch or a portable radio, and will fit in a girl’s handbag or the back pocket of a pair of jeans. One click later, the spring-assisted deployment mechanism snaps and you have a sub machine gun ready to fire. It is made out of a light-weight polymer material rather than metal, making it very light and easy to carry. It is also small enough even to fit in the back pocket of most everyday pants. It was developed for potential use by personal protection details such as the United States Secret Service. It is still a prototype and may or may not be made in large numbers for law enforcement agencies. The prototype uses a semi-automatic firing mechanism from a 9mm Glock 17 pistol. With modification, the FMG-9 could also use the mechanism of a Glock 18 machine pistol for Class 3 or law enforcement use.

The FMG-9 is a rapidly-deployable, ultra-concealable personal defense weapon currently in development for military, law-enforcement and private security operators. It is designed to offer maximum firepower and control in a compact and discreet package. The non-firing prototype was unveiled during the 2008 SHOT Show and features a streamlined polymer casing, ready-to-fire push-button deployment, Glock 17 slide assembly, capability to accept up to 31-round Glock 18 magazines (in the folded position), top Picatinny (MIL-STD-1913A) rail and a detachable carrying handle with light shield.

An Insight Technologies tactical light was mounted on the prototype. Additional space allows for an auto-sear to be installed for qualified users. The FMG9 is currently a conceptual prototype. No determination of production of the system has been finalized.
