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.

In 2010, Magpul Industries' PTS (Professional Training and Simulation) Division in cooperation with KWA Performance Industries released the FPG (Folding Pocket Gun).[1] The FPG is almost identical to the FMG-9 prototype, but contains the firing mechanism of an airsoft KWA G18C replica. The FPG fires 6mm pellets with a magazine capacity of 48 rounds.[2]
