Skip to comments.The Flashlight Machine Gun, Could be a Game Changer (Video)
Posted on 06/27/2011 9:29:56 AM PDT by OneVike
In this video, a gentleman from Magpul Industries introduces their concept weapon the FMG-9. As I watched the video, I was struck by the thought that we have the police, in high crime areas, having trouble distinguishing the difference between MP3 players and guns. Not to mention the growing debate about TSA workers frisking granny and her 2 year old grandson because they may be carrying a bombs. Now we have something new thrown into the mix. The item I write about is a machine gun that's so unique it can be disguised as a flashlight and slipped into your back pocket.
The Folding Machine Gun 9 (FMG-9) Is normally concealed as a harmless flashlight, but at the touch of a button you can flip it out to a fully functional sub-machine gun. If you decide the coast is clear, and you can just then just flip it back into a flashlight mode, and slip the innocent looking gadget into your back pocket.
Personally I'm still trying figure out when this type of weapon would come in handy. Maybe you could use it in a Homeowner's Association argument about brown spots in the lawn, or the placement of your cans on garbage day. Then again there are always those pesky neighbors who are complaining about your car bringing down the property values because it isn't new enough.
Truth is, the best use of this type of weapon would be for those of you who live Obama's old neighborhood. Now that you don't have your community agitator keeping the local scum busy by protesting the local businesses, you could always use the FMG to keep the thugs at a distance as you walk home from the local market. Not that it would make much of a difference during a random drive- by. After all, by the time you pulled it from you back pocket and unfolded it, you would probably have a few rounds in you. Even if you even had a chance to return fire the car would have sped around the corner out of site. Don't worry though, because by January 2013 you'll have your community organizer back, and he'll have those pesky thugs busy harassing the evil business owners again instead of you.
All joking aside, anyone who thinks this is just another reason to scrap the 2nd amendment, this gun is not being produced. Even if it were, Magpul doesn't sell it's restricted products to the general public, and the FMG-9 would be an example of a restricted product. This sort of gun is designed and marketed to private security contractors, military, and other governmental institutions whose operators require firepower in a concealable package, think Uzi in a briefcase and you have the right idea.
As for the possibility that mercenaries, drug dealers, or assassins would happen to use any weapons produced by Magpul, or any other weapon manufacturer is completely irrelevant to the equation. So you anti American, and anti 2nd Amendment types can calm down. Besides, even if this weapon was put into production and somehow ended up in the wrong hands, we now know it would probably have been done by the ATF (Project Gunwalker) under Obama watch as CBS reported back in February.
you would like to watch the video of the flashlight machine gun, there is no need to visit my site. However if you wish to give my site a hit, it would be much appreciated.)
Whose back pocket would that slip into?
This is a video that was forwarded to me by a friend. I did some research and wrote something up top accompany the video. It's pretty cool, and as you consider the many uses for such an item, you will no doubt find yourself entertained by the while concept of a Flashlight Machine Gun.... At least I did, and that is why I wanted to share it with you...............
First posted about in February, 2008, a very cool gun.
Looks like that toy gun/radio combo, as seen on TV’s “Man from U.N.C.L.E.”, they used to sell in the late 60s. Except you get no radio.
Wonder how accurate it is. Looks like a spray n’ pray gun.
Yes, but with no video, and without my humorous take.
I remember it. Fact is I tried to find a youtube video to put alongside it for comparison. Unfortunately, the only video i could find was pulled by youtube for copywrite violations.
I want one...
Great, now we’ll have SWAT busting down doors to shoot 9 year olds for possession of a pen light because it ‘might be a gun’. You know, because they made one gun look like a flashlight, now all flashlights are possible guns.
Ok, that makes more sense. Very small, would be handy to have in a bug out kit.
Magpul only makes the conversion case.The pistol is a Glock 19 if I’m correct.
It’s not a conversion, they use parts of the Glock, but not a conversion in that you put the Glock in a pre-made shell.

I miss the old toys. Now they will shutdown a company for daring to make anything look like a gun. So we have boys using barbies as guns.
you have freepmail
Popular story, OV.
Here’s a flashlight bump.
So do you.
“So we have boys using barbies as guns.”
And will be expelling them from school for doing so too.
Its not a conversion, they use parts of the Glock, but not a conversion in that you put the Glock in a pre-made shell.
Well your right but I didn’t explain it well enough.Your Not converting the pistol your just adding the case to it.
Reminiscent of the laptop gun from Perfect Dark.
I remember about 5 years ago seeing my nephew using his sisters barbie as a gun. He had the legs spread so that they looked like a hand grip and he used the head and body as the chamber and barrel as he shot his sister in the back.
Funniest thing at the time, because Rush had been talking about it on his show just a few days earlier.
I used to keep a 20 gauge shotgun in my HS locker during the fall. Would go squirrel hunting after school. The Principal would always ask me to bring him some back.
I remember that episode.
That’s cool! I remember the Johnny Eagle sets (wanted the “M-14”) and one toy maker who made a “.30 cal Browning”. It was belt fed.
They had some toy guns that “fired” those “stick ‘em” round caps and would shoot out a bullet. I guess everyone would wet their drawers if they saw those now. I grew up in a part of KY where you’d see folks wearing “pieces” in their holsters...and yet, not one massacre...go figure.
Growing up in Northern Minn, I remember my shop teacher giving us safety classes in hunting, and tips on how to trap muskrats and beavers.
Hell, the first job I had that paid an hourly wage was driving a forklift for “Anderson Lumber Yard” when I was barely 16.
Oh Lord for the good old days.
I gotta buy one of these, it will fit perfectly into the storage cubby behind the seats in my truck.
Man that brings back memories. When I was 4 or 5 I had one of these, a Marx Ma Deuce. (Mine was all OD green, not camouflage like in the video below.) I don't know what happened to it, but I sure went through a few blister packs of D cell "ammo" on Christmas morning!
No big deal.
There used to be a folding SMG that would fit into a walkie-talkie holster. Came in designer colors, too, like pink, blue, purple, etc.
Where I grew up in Northern Virginia the were numerous battles between cowboys and Indians along with full out assaults against “Jap” and “Nazi” positions every day. Weather and Moms permitting.

We did the same thing. Every day we’d play “Army” or “cowboys and injuns”. All the girls wanted to do was play frickin’ “school”. We just had 3/4’s of the year in real school—and they wanted to “play it” during the summer. That’s probably why we did “commando” raids on their school houses...
However the adults, where I grew up, wore the real stuff! LOL
Pretty cool OneVike,
If you could get BATF to allow you to have one of these little buggers one might feel a little safer in those Amish neighborhoods.
Wow...here’s a commercial on the entire “Gung Ho Commando” set. I remember the complete set—I wanted one badly as a kid, but didn’t get one. I’d forgotten it was a .50, not a .30.
Note how the portray the fat kid “chowing down” on the chow...LOL!
The girls in our neighborhood joined in with the boys sometimes carrying a gun and sometimes being nurses. Some of ‘em were good shots and really sneaky scouts, got ambushed more than ounce by them.
Ooops...meant to include you on this one:

Some schools will expel kids for finger guns (pointing index finger and going bang or thumb going down).
I want at least one!
we used to play a game called Bunker Man.
there was an old barn set on a hillside covered by yearly mowed trees and heavy weeds.
the object was to hit inside the bunker with dirt clods or “die” by actually getting nailed with one in your assault.
Thanks for the ping!
Those real dry, dusty dirt clods were the best...when they hit something, it looked like smoke.
I was in a Walgreen's recently and did an exaggerated double-take after walking past a display of toys. RIght there in plain sight were dozens of blister packs of those 6-shot plastic ring caps. The cap guns are entirely bright orange now, but I was very surprised to see that stuff. Of course, it was in Texas.
Outdoor survival, including hunter's safety (resulting in the card needed to get a license), was mandatory to pass junior high when I was in.
