Smith & Wesson is continuing to claw at the air with new products for 2023 by producing a 9mm pistol caliber carbine. As sort of a no-brainer, it is based on their M&P9 pistol but with a longer 16-inch barrel. Of interest, the carbine, dubbed the FPC, has a left-folding barrel assembly that roughly drops it in half.
Additional features include a handguard with an upper Picatinny rail and M-LOK accessory slots, what Smith calls a flat-face trigger, and the typical M&P9 pistol’s interchangeable palm swells. The buttstock holds two extra mags. It ships with a carrying bag designed with multiple Velcro storage compartments and has an MSRP of $659.
