The Full Conceal M3D Glock 19 pistol has been pretty controversial since we first posted about them a while back. In case you missed any of our previous post about it, the Full Conceal M3D is a Glock 19 pistol that has been converted by Full Conceal to fold in half using a folding mechanism that they’ve designed. The idea behind the Full Conceal M3D is to be able to carry more ammo in a smaller package. A folded Glock 19 with a 21-round magazine has almost the same dimensions as an iPhone 7 Plus. They also recently released a folding Glock 43 as well.
I actually got to play around with the M3D at the 2018 SHOT Show and I actually thought it wasn’t that bad. Deploying the pistol was pretty quick and easy, quicker than I thought it would be. And the folding mechanism was pretty solid. I don’t think I’d switch from a standard G19 to the M3D just yet however.
Other than the question of why would anyone need one of these? The other bone of contention is the price. The Full Conceal M3D retails at $1399 for a fully converted Glock 19 and one 21-round Magpul magazine. I’m sure a lot of that MSRP includes the cost of the G19 and the parts and R&D for the folding mechanism, but that’s still a steep price to pay for a pistol.
Well Full Conceal just announced that they’re now offering a conversion service for Gen 3 Glock 19, 23, 25, 32 and 38 pistols. They currently aren’t offering conversions for Gen 5 frames just yet. The conversion service from Full Conceal is $749 on their website.
Just a note, this WILL void the factory Glock warranty.
Full Conceal Inc. offers a premium gunsmith service to convert your Glock 19/23/25/32/38 (Gen 3 & Gen 4) into a Full Conceal M3D Configuration. By premium, we mean a price that is all-inclusive, strong warranty, superb quality guarantee, great customer service throughout and after, and a fast predictable turn-around time.
IMPORTANT: We currently only support M3D conversion for the frames of Glock 19 (9mm) / Glock 23 (.40 S&W) / Glock 25 (.380 Auto) / Glock 32 (.357 Sig) / Glock 38 (.45 G.A.P.) on (Gen 3 Frames ONLY). Please double check that your frames are Gen 3. For updates on when we will have support for Gen 4/5 frames, please sign-up for our newsletter on the homepage and we will notify you when those conversions will be available.
Keeping the Process Simple:
We aim to create an informative and frustration-free experience when getting your Glock frame converted to the M3 configuration. Upon payment of this service, these are all the major steps that happen from your side:
Step 1: Wait for a shipment package
Full Conceal ships you (via USPS) your frustration-free shipment kit. Expect this shipment kit to be mailed out by the next business day via USPS Priority Mail (which typically takes 2-3 business days to arrive). This shipment kit includes:
a perfect sized box for your Glock Frame
prepaid UPS 2-day air shipping label
gray protective wrapping for your Glock Frame
Note: The shipment kit comes by US Postal Service (USPS), but when you ship your frame to us, we need to use a different carrier (UPS). When you send your frame to us, make sure you go to UPS and NOT USPS!
Step 2: Send us your Glock Frame
Using everything from shipment kit you received in ‘Step 1’, package nicely (with the gray protective wrapping) your entire Glock lower receiver only (which is the frame with all the internals – don’t include the slide, barrel and recoil spring). Secure in the box provided, stick the pre-paid UPS 2-day air shipping label on the box, and drop it off at local UPS store (getting a receipt of the drop-off from UPS).
IMPORTANT: You MUST get a receipt of the UPS drop-off or if something goes wrong during shipping, we may not be able to refund any/all your money as we will not be able to prove shipment date, claim insurance…etc.
Step 3: Wait for us to send you back your M3D
When Full Conceal receives your frame, we will confirm via email and let you know if we accept it for the M3D conversion process. If accepted, we will convert your frame to an M3D configuration and have it shipped within 10-business days by UPS 2-day air.
