An Official Journal Of The NRA | First Look: Smith & Wesson: M&P FPC Pistol Caliber Carbine
Chambered in 9mm, the S&W M&P FPC carbine uses M&P magazines and folds horizontally for easy storage.
I doubt that will ever happen. At the moment, 9mm is the bandwagon again...Make it in 357 SIG and I would buy one.

In the first video, he claims that 9mm hits with the force of a 357 (from a handgun) when shot out of a 16 inch barrel...The one thing I wonder about is what a 16" barrel does to velocity. Does the velocity increase till the bullet leaves the barrel or does the friction between the barrel/bullet eventually start overcoming the rapidly decreasing gas pressure?
My AR15 looking carbine only has an 11.5" barrel with an XM177 (clone) flash suppressor pinned/welded to make it just over 16". So 11.5" of effective barrel. I use a slow burning powder in my reloads (Blue Dot) so it burns longer than the more common fast burning powders used in factory 9MM ammo.
Just mildly curious. Sixteen inch barrels with 9MM may be fine.
I think they were used on Battlestar Galactica, actually.That's Star Wars, or Star Ship Troopers looking stuff right there.
Honestly,he usually isn't that bad. I like his reviews usually. Not sure why he gave that much attitude this time.He's an obnoxious reviewer. First and last time I'll watch him. Too many other reviewers without needing this smarmy narcissist douche. He's the type of person I avoid in gunstores, ranges, and life in general.
I have owned several PCCs. The Beretta CX4 Storm - I have 2, and have owned 4. On the safety, they did something similar on the CX4 as they did on this new M&P PCC.... Mag release and slide stop is similar in place to where it is on a handgun. But, I have yet to see a PCC with a safety that operates like a handgun. I don't think you are going to find that. Both the Storm and this new M&P safety work the same. Or, you are going to find an AR15 style safety on other PCCs. You are not going to find a 1911 style thumb safety on a PCC that I have ever seen.I'm a fan of consistency. My 9MM (bigger than pistol) guns are ARs. Same safeties, same way of dropping the magazines, same grips, same way to clear a malfunction, etc.
Well, the their new M&P Five Seven took a few weeks to show up after they showed it off.Finding one is going to take awhile. I've not seen one in stock online or in LGS.
I would swear that at least 1 youtube review said it was pretty light for a blowback rifle.Got to handle one yesterday at the range I work at. Typical S&W fir and finish, all good. Is it perfect? Is any/every gun perfect? I like it, watched all the videos and the gun seems super reliable. That said, no one has yet to tell us what the recoil impulse of this rifle is. The KelTec in a long range session can be a shoulder buster, after all, it’s a blow back design like the Smith. But, not all blow backs beat you up, nor do they have to be heavy to Not do so. So, what is it?
Time will tell, but I think S&W has a winner on their hands, great home defense/truck gun IMO, at a great price point.
Well, 9mm carbines usually recoil more than an AR15I'm assuming that there's less recoil than an AK and that's fine with me. I would think for most shooters, the recoil isn't a factor.
