It has been two years since MagPul and ZEV Technologies established and announced their partnership for the development and manufacturing of the FDP-9 / FDC-9 9mm Luger folding firearm, based on MagPul’s prototype FMG-9 folding sub-machinegun that was showcased as a concept at SHOT Show well over a decade ago.

This year, once again at SHOT Show, the companies provided the public with some long-awaited updates over the development of the design: two variants will exist, with the FDP-9 being marketed in the US as a handgun and the FDC-9 being available as an NFA-regulated short barrel rifle. The development process is near its end, and both models should be commercially launched by 2023.

The initial FMG-9 concept was completely re-imagined and reworked into a firearm that shall be dependable and highly performing – a non trivial endeavor that needs time to achieve. Both companies are keeping pretty hush on all other details, including potential price, as of today.
