The MSRP is currently set at $1,499 and will hopefully become available very soon at your nearest Falkor Defense dealer. One thing that Falkor Defense is priding themselves on with the introduction of the FG-9 9mm PCC is their Last Round Bolt Hold Open (LRBHO) feature which is more difficult to achieve in a PCC than one may think. Falkor Defense goes on to better explain this as well as the PCC in general:
There has been a noticeable increase in popularity of pistol caliber carbines within the last few years. While manufacturers hastily rushed pistol receiver sets to the market, many had underlying issues that were left unaddressed. We knew we had to do it differently; we had to do it better. One of the main issues was a lack of, or an unreliable Last Round Bolt Hold Open (LRBHO). The industry soon realized that PCC’s were then known to have varying degrees of magazine reliability. The FALKOR Defense FG-9 pistol features a patent pending last round bolt hold open system designed to have a more robust construction and better magazine compatibility.
The main lever arm is constructed from solid steel on a single-plane swivel for consistent movement, compared to a freely moving arm. Blending functionality with form, all FG-9 pistols feature a large flared magwell to assist in quicker reloads, and all Upper/Lower receiver sets are mated to one another for a precise, no-rattle fitment.
An innovative achievement, the FG-9 is FALKOR Defense’s first entry into the PCC game and we are very excited to bring it to the market.
So overall, what do you guys and gals think? Is this going to be a premium contender in the growing Pistol Caliber Carbine market? Or is there something you would like to see changed or added to this PCC? Let us know all of your thoughts in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.
