Flux Defense have released their Raider 365 which they describe as the " is the world’s smallest PDW". Flux Defense aim to give shooters the advantages of using a pistol caliber carbine while being the size of a full size handgun. The new Raider is perhaps the smallest pistol chassis system in existence with the short brace version measuring 9.75 inches when the brace is folded. Based around SIG Sauer's P365, the Raider 365 is made from 7075 Aluminum and S7 Steel, it allows the user to carry up to 50 rounds on the gun with optional mag extensions. Its available in short (9.75 inches folded) stock and brace variants and a long (11.25 inches folded) version.

MSRP for the Raider 365 runs between $799.00 – $849.99 depending on configuration.

Here's what Flux Defense have to say about the new Raider 365:

Introducing the Raider 365: the smallest and fastest PDW in the world. The Raider 365 works with any Sig p365 slides, barrels and FCU’s. It features an auto-deploy side-folder for the fastest PDW draw from concealment on the market and has the same patented speed-load system for rapid emergency reloads. The optional holster is both IWB and OWB and is compatible with Safariland QLS.
The concept of the shoulderable sidearm is to give Law Enforcement, American Military and civilians overmatch capability over bad guys using traditional handguns. Essentially, the shooter has all the advantages of using a PCC, while being the size of a full size handgun. It’s more stable and more accurate at longer distances, but in a package that can be holstered. Despite having a 6” barrel, the Raider 365 is nearly the same size as a Glock 17 with X300.
The Raider 365 is as fast as a pistol. You can watch a Dicken Drill in 2.97 seconds from concealment or a Bill Drill from appendix holster in 1.52 seconds with a .83 draw on our instagram. The concealed carry Raider 365 can be holstered IWB, fits in the SOCS Vertx fanny pack, our sling bag and a coming shoulder rig that can be concealed under suit coats for executive protection.

Flux Defense released a snappy prom video to announce the Raider 365's launch:


  • Up to 43 Rounds on the gun with optional mag extensions
  • Optional 6” True Precision Barrel
  • Optional Holster that is IWB and OWB Safariland QLS spring

    As much as i like this, 1000+ dollars for this is a bonkers price. And yes its 1000+ if you want the holster and 6 inch barrel which is basically mandatory for its use case.

    This ad was made by people who didn't own a single firearm before 2020. And where did my discuss profile go?

      This site has been declining a bit recently, getting rid of features and becoming more and more of an advertising vehicle/youtube promoter for a single dude.
