A brand new release from Smith & Wesson, the FPC looks interesting, but is it useful?

Look this need to be built in 5.7 so it can be paired with the new m&p 5.7 pistol
Like a Glock who doesn’t have a safety you don’t have to use the safety. I agree with you about the extra mag storage.
I really want this in 45, 5.7 and 10mm
Jerry Miculek didn’t like the poundage of the trigger. He said he’s used to lighter triggers, but did like the carbine
If the brace thing sticks……do you think the bullpup will have a restriction?
So SW decided to copy Glocktec
How do you like this vs the Ruger PC carbine?
I bought the KELTEK Sub 2k and had to do a lot of upgrades to get it to work like the Smith & Wesson. I will definately buy the SW just because you did this review. thanks for the dedicated honest reviews, wish I woulld have found you early on in my gun quest now I own 15 guns and love them all! Stay GOLDEN OUTLAW and having your wife help is hella cool! You seem like a great couple! L8R CU on the next one…….
I like my Glocktec 40SW this
I’ve watched most of the big gun YouTubers and you’re basically the only one actually honest about this and not just “Wow it’s cool, great option guys”
Good , brief review.
I see tax stamp😏
It’s the keltech sub 2000
Does it come with the optic?
A real shooter. Amen
I’ll wait for the 10mm V2
This or ruger pc charger
These carbines are ugly AF… And for that price, I hate to even say it, but I could buy almost three Hi-Points… I will not be buying one, that’s for sure.
The slide/bolt release for this FPC is probably like the one on the M&P pistols, which is NOT a slide release. It is actually designated as a slide Catch for the pistols. The M&P pistols are meant to release the slide by racking the slide. It seems that same is true for this FPC.
I’ve got a PCC and PCC Charger, and like them a lot; however a 10mm version of this might warrant a purchase.
They should have gone with 10mm or 5.7
I’m not taking the last cookie from her….
*Me looking at my sub 2k with an optic and more than 50 rounds thru it still going strong* hmmmmmm weird
S&W conference….Hey lets copy everything Keltec did 10yrs ago
Do those mags fit the double stack shield model? If so it’s the perfect companion to the shield….
In my opinion something likes this needs to be made in 357 Sig, which would deliver more than 500 lb. Ft. of muzzle energy out of a 10, or 12 to a 13 in barrel. More than any 45ACP. And effective out to 125 to 150 meters.
To me for 700 MSRP there are a lot of bugs imo…….the little oddities I would think s&w wouldn’t have those little things……but just my opinion…..but still neat little gun
Stop talking so fast. Slow down and take some breaths – this is taught in all "speech" classes. After each sentence, press the space bar at least once. Thanks.
Shoot hollowpoints well?
looked like the charging handle moved when you fired, and sometimes more than others. Was I just seeing things?? Is it tight or is there movement when its open and ready?
Does it take drum magazines?
Cool gun but over 1000 dollars. That is a joke.
Bottom line: Buy the Mark II version…
Okay I really liked the dance.
Bless you for another straightforward and comprehensive review!
I like how slim my Kel Tec folds up.
I’ve had my sub 2000 with Red Lion add ons for a long time now. Flawless execution.
As always, damn good initial review that didn’t take a lunch break in order to get through it.
I’ve watched several videos on the new FPC and so far not one has mentioned how well the attached optic holds and returns to zero going from folded to unfolded. It’s my understanding that the fore end rail is polymer and since the optic attaches to the barrel instead of the receiver (what dumbass thought that up?) it makes me question how well this system really works. I initially thought I would want one of the FPC’s but now I seriously have my doubts. I have a number of AR platforms as well as a Kriss Vector carbine. I would never mount an optic on the fore end rail of an AR and my Kriss Vector has the added extended fore end on it that I don’t even mount a front sight on. This of course says nothing of the detractor points brought up in the video that I agree with. Thank you for the review but I guess I’m going to wait for the Gen 2 version to come out that hopefully fixes these problems.
I got my sub-2000 used for $360, so I can live with the iron sights. I only wish the buttstock was a little taller so I wouldn’t have to hunker down so much to shoot it.
I kinda like it, not gonna lie.
Great review and this is an excellent firearm; however, I will still stick with my Kel-tec. Yes, the company isn’t exactly known for its manufacturing excellence and high standard production materials. However, I have MCarbo-ized mine to get it where I want it to be. My sub 2k is accurate, reliable, and fun to shoot. To be about it, if stuff were to hit the fan, a folding carbine like this S&W gun, the funky pivot gun, or the Kel-tec is not probably the first thing you would grab for anyway, they fill a niche, and life is good.
Want to ask can you fold it with the safety off?
Hmm..can it handle hot stuff ?
I always hit with Kel Tec. Me and my son never miss with it. Used to like you channel
Does it come in 10mm? Am I the first to ask?
Bashing sub 2000 when another gun manufacturer copied the design? Ugh
My questions…..does this work….is the rifle sturdy…will it stop someone from hurting you…?
I have had one of these for years… but mine was made by kel-tec
i just got a sub2000 amd im at1200 rounds withing 2 weeks hopefully nothing breaks im worried now
