The FMG was designed in 1984 by Francis J. Warin for Eugene Stoner's company ARES Inc. (US Patent 4625621, filed April 2, 1984) Warin designed the FMG as a self-defense weapon for high-ranking politicians and wealthy businessmen in kidnapping prone nations. The FMG is a uniquely foldable design that can be folded into a small nondescript box for concealment.
Two prototypes were made. The first model lacks a trigger guard, uses MP 28 magazines and has a top-mounted charging handle. The second model features a trigger guard, adds an additional 3-round burst mode, uses Uzi magazines, and has an under-barrel charging handle.
