With a 4.3-inch, cold-hammer-forged, threaded barrel, the new FN 509 Compact Tactical is compatible with a wide range of popular aftermarket accessories like compensators or suppressors. With FN's proprietary Low-Profile Optics-Mounting System, in excess of 10 miniature red sights can be mounted to this pistol. The compact frame features FN's signature enhanced-grip texturing for greater purchase, an accessory rail for lights or lasers and interchangeable backstraps to tailor the 509 to the shooter's hand.
Additional features like suppressor-height night sights permit co-witnessing with miniature red dots and also while sound suppressors are attached. When he optics system is not in use, the protective slide cap provides a serrated surface for racking the slide from any surface and ensures iron sight alignment.
The FN 509 Compact Tactical ships in a soft-sided case with the optics-mounting kit, one each of the 12-, 15- and 24-round capacity magazines with the appropriate grip sleeves (or in states that require them, three 10-round magazines). MSRP is $1,049, and visit FN America for details.
