And yes, it folds. I just couldn't resist building this awesome weapon. Enjoy!
About this creation
The FMG-9 is easily one of the hardest weapons I have ever made. The grip had to fold ninety degrees, and the stock had to fold 180 degrees. Easier said than done with LEGO. Apart from that, the grip needed to fit INSIDE the stock, and yet they both had to be the same width for accuracy. I decided to create two different stocks; one for show and the other for the realism. The thinner stock is the more realistic one but you can’t fold the weapon with it on. The larger and wider stock can fit the grip but it makes the whole thing way too thick. This gun may look fragile but the clips that hold the grip and stock in place are surprisingly strong; you have to pull quite hard to unclip them.
Enough of my babbling, enjoy!
-Attachments (EOTech sight and carry handle)
-Foldable (Like the real one)
-Interchangeable stock & handle (Handle has unremovable magazine for rough play)
-Removable flashlight (5 studs wide)
With magazine and no carry handle. There is a bullet on top of the magazine.
Thicker stock – I made this one first.
Folding up – The back of the grip snaps out and the whole thing flips forward.
Fully folded – The FMG-9 is designed to be super compact; it can fit inside someone’s clothes with ease.
With carry handle and thin stock. You can see that the gun is even more compact without the carry handle on top.

Thanks for looking, please tell me what you think! I'm thinking of posting a few pictures of the internals to help those of you who want to build this. Just please give credit if you decide to use my designs. Rate and comment if you would like me to post some internals!
Wonderful construction, but a few notes;
If you think it looks fat, it's because it seems that it is too short, to complete the full size, it would be 3 studs or so longer. Another thing that might contribute to the fact that it looks so big is the carrying handle, which is a bit wide. Hope this helps, cheers!
