It’s fair to say that the launch of the Full Conceal pistol has been met with a mixture of skepticism and curiosity. After all, it’s a folding Glock that promises 21+1 rounds of 9mm and a cell phone footprint. Naturally, that’s going to invite some proverbial sideways glances. But the firearms industry is nothing if not innovative, and we believe all innovations deserve a fair shake. YouTuber Graham Baates agrees, which is why he wanted to take a closer look at the Full Conceal M3D.

Full Conceal M3D Tests

In the video above, Baates puts the Full Conceal M3D through a battery of tests. The first test is for magazine compatibility. Here, Baates tests the M3D with a variety of magazines, including the PMag that comes with the gun; TorkMag; ETS; Jagemann; ProMag; SGM Tactical and a few others.

Next, Baates tests out some hollow point defensive rounds in the M3D. These include Federal’s 150 gr and 124 gr HST; Speer 115gr GDHP; and Hornady’s 100 gr FTX Critical Defense Lite.

Finally, Baates conducts a practicality test. This involves drawing and shooting the folding gun from a pocket, both with and without a round in the chamber.

So how’d the Full Conceal M3D do? Watch the video above to find out.
