Can’t find a caliber breakdown. All I’m finding is top 5 guns sold in categories. I don’t see an annual report but I’m sure there has to be something out there.

NSSF, Gunbroker and Gungenius seem to refer to Gunbrokers sales. Not exactly a perfect correlation but this is what I’ve found.
These are the top 5 sold per category in the month of December 2020 on Gunbroker’s site.;

I wonder, is it coincidence, or by design, that the introduction of new firearms for 2021 seems lacking compared to past years. Did manufacturers put new designs on the back burner, and only concentrate on getting existing firearms to market? Or, am I just misinformed?

I think some companies are innovating while others are just trying to pump out product while the getting is good.
Having no Shot Show this year is also putting a damper on information flow.

People been up Magpul’s butt since they showed it off 13 years ago. They finally got around to doing something about it.

Magpul & ZEV Technologies Collaborate to Introduce FDP-9 & FDC-9, Production Versions of FMG-9

Originally unveiled in 2008, the Folding Machine Gun was a 9mm, Glock-based sub gun, envisioned as a transforming firearm that would snap into action at the push of a button. In 2022, Magpul and ZEV Technologies will bring an updated version to full production.



Here is Magpul’s press release:

At SHOT Show 2008, Magpul® introduced a folding concept gun based on the Glock® operating system. It deployed single-handedly from a compact, simple form factor into a short-barreled carbine that was easier to handle and easier to employ accurately than many typical handguns. It also provided its own safe storage method by folding into itself to form a case. At the time, this concept firearm was intended to be just that…a concept.

In 2019, ZEV Technologies® released their OZ9 modular pistol, which is compatible with Glock-style operating systems, using a unique receiver block that’s independent of the pistol’s grip and allows users to change grip frames to suit their needs.

Shortly thereafter, Magpul and ZEV began working together to bring the folding gun concept to life using a proprietary variant of the ZEV OZ9 operating system and a Magpul chassis. Since then, we’ve been refining designs and obtaining required legal approvals. The result: The ZEV Technologies Folding Defensive Pistol-9 (FDP-9) and Folding Defensive Carbine-9 (FDC-9), both offered in 9x19mm.



The intent, with preliminary ATF approvals in place, is for ZEV Technologies to offer the FDP-9 firearm as a complete, large-format pistol. From there, the purchaser can enjoy the firearm as a self-enclosing large-format pistol. They may also choose to file the appropriate ATF Form 1 and, after approval, purchase a conversion kit to legally assemble it into the FDC-9. It will then be classified as a short-barreled rifle (SBR) and subject to all NFA laws. Although not certain at this time, the FDC-9 might also be offered straight from ZEV and would transfer to the purchaser as an SBR on an ATF Form 4 through their local dealer. The FDP-9 and FDC-9 will not be available from Magpul; they will be available from ZEV Technologies and through distributors and dealers that carry ZEV Firearms.



The ZEV FDP-9 and FDC-9 firearms won’t be ready until next year, but we wanted to share them with the world a little early. We’ve already crossed the most significant hurdles to bringing this concept to life, and we’ll be sharing a lot more about it throughout the upcoming year.

The ZEV Technologies FDP-9 and FDC-9, brought to you by ZEV and Magpul. Coming in 2022.

Some additional amplification:

There will be no kits to transform an OZ9 into this configuration. While the receiver is OZ9-based, it is modified from the original and is proprietary to the FDP-9/FDC-9. The FDP-9/FDC-9 will only be available as a complete firearm.

However, upon receipt of an approved ATF Form 1, there will be a FDC-9 conversion kits to retrofit your existing FDP-9 cover to a Carbine stock.

The firearms will accept Glock 17-round pattern double-stack 9mm Magazines. The FDP-9/FDC-9 will fold into the stowed position with a Magpul PMAG 27 GL9 – Glock installed. It will not work with Glock 19-pattern (or shorter) magazines.
