The Magpul FMG-9 is a prototype for a new generation of folding submachine guns, designed by Magpul Industries in 2008. Like other folding machine guns, it would be used for concealed carry and can be disguised as anything from a small package to an extra laptop battery. It is made out of a light-weight polymer material rather than metal, making it very light and easy to carry. It was developed for potential use by personal protection details such as the United States Secret Service. As of 2014 Magpul has indicated no intention of bringing the prototype to production. As of Aug 2019 any information about FMG-9 on Magpul website is absent.
