Foxtrot Mike Products is a company that has become synonymous with innovation, and quality. We are pleased to say they have done it again, exceeding expectations with their new series of Hybrid AR9 firearms. This FM-MkII rifle is a high-quality PCC offering from Foxtrot Mike, ready for Duty or Competition. Foxtrot Mike takes pride in what they manufacture and as such, use the best material possible for their offerings. The upper receiver is made from Billet aircraft grade aluminum, with a Type III Hard Black Anodized finish, while the barrel is 16″ 41v50 Black Nitride with 1/2×36 thread pitch and 1:10 twist. This creates the base for a durable Duty ready direct blowback Pistol Caliber Carbine.
The FM-MkII Hybrid AR9 series also features something that no one else has done in the industry. The lower receiver is made of a durable polymer, which was done so that the pistol grip could be designed to hold a reserve Glock-style magazine in the grip. The pistol grip functions in a similar fashion to a standard handgun, where the backup magazine in the grip is released using a side button, as you would do with a traditional pistol. This ingenious feature allows you to have a loaded magazine in the magwell ready to fire, and a spare magazine (17rd Glock style magazines fit perfectly) in the grip, keeping your primary reserve magazine with the gun.
This FM9H-F1615-44 comes with a 4-position ambidextrous forward nonreciprocating charging handle that allows the user to grab towards the front of the weapon to manipulate, instead of reaching behind your trigger finger/ hand to manipulate the action. That way you don’t have to break your cheek weld and lose your sight picture as you typically have to do with traditional AR-type charging handles. Additionally, you have an ambidextrous selector switch, and incredibly enough an ambidextrous bolt hold open. There are not many, if any, AR9 models out there with an ambidextrous BHO lever on the right side of the firearm for quick manipulation. FM Products has made their BHO intuitive and easy to manipulate. It also features a 15″ MLOK Free Float rail system, sturdy M4 6 position polymer butt stock, a blast diffuser muzzle device, and comes with 1-27rd 9mm Glock style magazine. Weighing in at just 6lbs, this lightweight Pistol Caliber Carbine is mission ready, whether it is a day at the range, for Duty, or for Competition. This FMP9 makes a great base rifle for your PCC needs.
