During the SHOT Show 2022, Foxtrot Mike Products (FM Products) has introduced a new 9mm PCC called Hybrid. The feature that jumps out immediately and sets this pistol caliber carbine apart from the competition is the design of its polymer lower receiver. Particularly, the design of the pistol grip which allows housing a spare magazine (yes, Glock magazine).

The polymer lower receiver of FM Products Hybrid PCC has an aluminum insert in the buffer tube attachment area for rigidity. The charging handle is located on the handguard and is reversible. The safety selector and both magazine releases are ambidextrous.Why would you need to store a spare magazine on the gun itself? If for whatever reason you can’t or don’t want to have loaded magazines separate from the gun, and if you don’t want to use a drum or coupled mags to keep the gun slim, this solution will allow you storing quite a firepower on the weapon itself without increasing its overall thickness. Or if you need some sort of special ammunition readily available yet separate from magazines with your primary ammo, then the pistol grip storage can be useful. Let us know in the comments section for what applications and in what scenarios do you think this feature will come in handy.
