Sneak Peek at Prototype M3 ‘Folding Glock’ from Full Conceal

Send to Kindle

Full Conceal, the company that makes folding handguns from existing pistol platforms, published photos of its prototype M3 design recently.

The model pictured below is the “M3 Glock 19,” that will “store 23 rounds of 9mm flush to give the footprint of a cell phone,” according to the company’s website.

This is a prototype. The production model will differ with “improved materials, design, and features.”

The M3 deviates from the M1 and M2 designs in that it uses stainless steel latches to secure the handle of the gun to the frame.  Those latches also serve as a trigger guard when the gun is unfolded.

Both the M1 and the M2 design did not use latches.  The frame and the magazine/handle were completely separate.  You’ll note the differences between the three models when comparing the photos below to those at the bottom of the page.

The gun stores 23 rounds of 9mm.

The M3 features a stainless steel trigger guard and custom trigger.

Purchasers can order the M3 Glock for pre-sale at a cost of $999, which is $200 off the MSRP of $1,199.  Units are expected to ship this fall.  Additional pistol platforms will be available shortly thereafter.

If you’re planning on attending the NRA Carry Guard Expo in Milwaukee Wisconsin Aug. 25-27, make sure to stop by the Full Conceal booth.  They’ll have the M3 on display.

And don’t forget to visit the Full Conceal website for more information.

    I met Full Conceal at TriggrCon- They had four deep of people all day long. Me and 4 of my friends all bought the M3 foldable Glock 19, and some bought their M1 Sig P-320. Although the M3 Foldable Glock was a prototype it looked good, and got to understand where they are going in the future with foldable pistol options.

    Might have been more economical to develop the concept on a modularized chassis with cheap replaceable grip frames. I’m glad to see progress but is is not something I would buy.

    It may have the “footprint” of a cell phone but it’s still got all the weight and thickness of a G19. Easier to pack around? I doubt it. And, if you ever need it, it requires additional time to unfold it. It’s always interesting to see what engineers can come up with as far as hide-out guns, but this one has little practical application.
