First Look: CrossBreed Holsters for FN 503

posted on May 22, 2020

The FN 503 is FN’s first single-stack pistol designed as a compact, quick-draw pistol with a six or eight-round magazine capacity. Small, lightweight and with a host of desirable features, it is an excellent choice in a defensive sidearm.

In order to make sure your FN 503 is near you when you need it most, CrossBreed Holsters has updated its product listing to include fits to accommodate the new FN 503. CrossBreed has produced quality holsters since 2005, and it worked with FN months before the release of the FN 503 to provide a wide selection of holsters and gear for owners of this new pistol.

Holster options for the FN 503 from CrossBreed include a selection of its renowned Inside The Waistband (IWB) holsters, including Hybrid MT2 Holster, SuperTuck and MiniTuck models. Appendix Inside the Waistband (AIWB) options include the Freedom Carry and Appendix Carry holsters.

In addition to this, CrossBreed now makes the SnapSlide, DropSlide and SuperSlide holsters for Outside the Waistband carry of your FN 503. If you’re looking for alternate carry methods, there is the Modular Belly Band holster, as well as the Purse Defender and Small Purse Defender holsters, along with the Cargo Pocket Rocket pocket holster. Other alternate carry methods for the FN 503 from Crossbreed include the Ohai Modular Holster, the Bedside Backup holster, the Last Ditch holster, the Pac Mat holster and the Mini Pac Mat holster and Crossbreed’s Ankle Holster.

CrossBreed also makes magazine carriers for the FN 503, including the Pac Mat Magazine Carrier, the Tuckable IWB Magazine Carrier, the Purse Defender Magazine Carrier, the Gideon Pocket Mag Carrier and an OWB Mag Carrier. In addition to all of the above, CrossBreed also offers Quick Ship Bundle Packages as well.
