The Trailblazer Pivot is a folding 9mm rifle.

A few years back, Trailblazer Firearms released its LifeCard, first in .22 LR, followed by .22 WMR. The foldable, single-barrel LifeCard comprised the most unique carry gun on the market. You could literally conceal it anywhere on your body, ready to deploy into a fight. Now Trailblazer brings that same approach to rifles with the Pivot.

Trailblazer Pivot Details

The Pivot, or Ultracompact Folding Rifle, comes chambered in 9mm. It works off a blowback design, using patented technology to achieve a minimal footprint when folded. With the platform folded down, the Pivot measures just 20.9 inches long, 1.15 inches wide and 5.9 inches tall. Deployed, the Pivot expands to 26.7-29.7 inches long, using a collapsible stock.

The Pivot feeds through its pistol grip. Better still, it utilizes the ubiquitous Glock pattern mags, compatible with 9mm variants. The Pivot even includes a spare magazine storage compartment in the stock.

For such a small package, the Pivot comes surprisingly loaded with features. It includes M-LOK accessory slots and an integrated Picatinny rail for attachment of accessories. A telescoping stock goes a long way in keeping the small platform shootable. Add in Glock pattern magazines, and there’s a lot to like about this interesting 9mm. Throw it in a pack for the trail, into a vehicle compartment or in a small space for home defense.

The Trailblazer Pivot utilizes Gen 4 Glock 9mm magazines.

The Pivot retails for $1,795. For even more info, please visit
