Now this is an interesting new submachine gun from MagPul!The Magpul® Folding Machine Gun (FMG9™) 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 in Las Vegas, NV 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. If the weapon were to be produced it would be regulated by the National Firearms Act
of 1934. The semi-automatic version would most likely be classified as a Short-Barreled Rifle (SBR) or
Any-Other Weapon (AOW) depending on an evaluation from the ATF Firearms Technology Branch. This
would require a registered transfer only to qualified individuals. Fully-automatic versions would be
classified as a post ’86 Machine-Gun (MG) and would not be available to individuals other than Class 3
dealers, military and law enforcement personnel.

    yea, be careful with what you are buying from these cats. i hear too much about some of the jack-ass’ery going on with them. i am not really sure where this whole travis haley story is heading. i don’t believe he is a poser, but there sure are some guys who are running him in the ground. i have to give him the benefit of the doubt as my marines have nothing bad to say about him. costa on the other hand is a different situation. like i said, don’t know the whole story, and everyone in the gun training business is always trying to one-up each other. be interested to hear if anybody has any recent experience with them or their training.

    I agree when you say be careful. There are so many schools out there no it’s hard to keep track. I know for a fact several of them are crap!!! I won’t point any fingers but it’s pretty obvious if you have any tactical experience when listening to what they are dishing out it’s garbage.
    Get references before you spend your hard earned money! Heck just go to Gunsite!
