You don’t have to spend $1,000 to get a suppressor-ready handgun with a pre-installed optic. You don’t even have to spend $700. FMK Firearm’s new Elite Series of semi-automatic pistols come standard (yes, standard) with either a Vortex Venom or a Burris Fastfire 3 (your choice), suppressor sights, and a threaded barrel.
Here’s the best part: they’re selling the entire package for just $679.
We asked FMK President David Wolfe at this year’s NRA Annual Meetings how his company stays in business, and he explained that they keep costs down by designing and manufacturing the entire gun in-house. While other companies outsource their product’s components, FMK fabricates their own metal and plastic pieces at their headquarters in Placentia, CA.
The entire product is both assembled and manufactured in the USA, which gives them lots of flexibility, both in terms of price and customization.
The Elite Series is stamped with “Thank You Armed Forces” on the frame and “Freedom Liberty” on the rear of the slide. Moving beyond aesthetics, the pistol features a shock-absorbing back strap, a relatively light trigger, and a beveled magwell.
They’re offering the pistol in four different configurations based on the barrel and optic. The Elite and Elite Pro models feature a 4-inch stainless steel barrel, the Elite Plus and Elite Pro Plus feature a 4.5-inch stainless steel threaded barrel.
The sight cut-outs are compatible with Glock sights, and the optic cut-out is compatible with Trijicon RMRs along with Vortex Venom and Burris Fastfire 3.
FMK offers both 10 and 14-round magazines, and the handgun weighs in at 23.5oz (approximately, depending on features) with a length of 6.85 inches.
The basic Elite model will set you back $475.95 and the Elite Pro Plus is available for $679.95.
