The 9C1 Generation 2 9mm compact pistol is ergonomically built to comfortably fit both large and small hands. The barrel is engineered to sit low for superior point and shoot accuracy and reduce muzzle flip. With its smooth DAO trigger the 9C1 Gen 2 has virtually no external protrusions making it ideal for concealed carry. What's more, FMK is not afraid to let customers know just how it feels about this country. The 9C1 pistol could have been stamped with the words "Made in America". Instead, the ejector is marked"Proudly American", while the frame says "Thank You U.S. Soldiers". The slide plate contains the words "Freedom and Liberty", with the magazine base plate reading "E Pluribus Unum". These are the markings of the plain-slide version of this pistol.
