True, the idea isn't new. But that thing looks like it weighs more than my bicycle. There were the Luger artillery guns, the C96 Mauser, and I think I recall a Hi-Power with a stock. The Glock PDW weighs less than those options, but I think the old designs were sleeker and more aesthetically pleasing. They also didn't have to worry about NFA crap, though. I don't know if the quality is there, but I like the design of the Mako stock better than the Endo. It's a bit more svelte. It doesn't allow for a "pistol brace" configuration, but someone with a stamp (hint, hint) should experiment with that stock and report back on how it compares to the Endo.

MAC did a video with one a couple years back: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cSycczZuNLw. Lots of flex in the stock. Something like the gunpoint underfolder stock (no link to another web store, googling gunpoint glock stock will find it) would work great, if you could figure out a cheek riser

Haven't seen that one before, interesting. No, it's not the first, but it is the furthest in the evolutionary concept of the pdw pistol.

My favorite was always the broomhandle C96 with a stock but the VP70 with the three round burst stock was also a novel idea. Of course the 93r is cool but I'd really, really like to see a G18 pdw!

Oh and the magpul "fmg" or "pmg" looked interesting as well...

Ahhhh yes, the HUSH PUPPY...


How'bout this, the Soviet Astronaut Pistol (with a machete for a stock)

Pity we can't get the Cosmonaut Pistol, it was a neat bit of survival kit.

I'd like to point out a historical truth.

First a little background. The Ruskies gave cosmonauts a gun because they land their spacecraft on dry land, unlike the US water landings. The gun is in case they are "a little" off the target and are stuck in Siberia until they get picked up. Now, moving forward to the present. They no longer bring that gun on space flights, but they are armed. As cool, neato and nifty as the cosmonaut combo gun is, they now go to space and back with.....

Wait for it.......

A handgun.

Now for the spoiler. It's no where near as good a hand gun as a slicked up, improved action, red dot sighted, brace or no brace Tupperware party like we are discussing here.

It's too bad we cant the cosmonaut survival gun, because it's a really cool thing. On the other hand, it's a good thing we can buy a Glock PDW, because it's a better tool.
