Well Now, That’s Different

Trailblazer is known for their folding Lifecard .22LR pistol, at least for now

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 last 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.

Pack 9 folded. Note that the barrel is oriented over the end of the stock! Also note that it cannot be fired in such 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.

The Pack 9 unfolded. Note the barrel orientation now.

And here is the kicker, the action and barrel swing into place 180-degrees on a horizontal axis.

Wait, what?
