The North Carolina company that brought the world a "fifth pocket-sized" folding .22 pistol now plans to bring a 9mm rifle to the market.
Trailblazer Firearms this week announced the planned Pack 9 rifle, a 9mm blowback-action carbine with an innovative folding design that compacts the gun down to 20.9-inches in its smallest format. Using Glock compatible double-stack magazines, the Pack 9 has a 16-inch threaded barrel, weighs a very light 5 pounds, and expands to 29.7 inches overall with the stock extended.
No word on the MSRP for the Pack 9, but Trailblazer plans to have it added to the company's catalog sometime in 2022 – which at this point is closer than you think. About the closest thing on the market to the Pack 9 already is KelTec's more traditional SUB2000, which weighs a couple ounces less, folds down to 16.25 inches, and is offered in 9mm and .40 cal.
