FN America just dropped its latest pistol, an incredibly compact, EDC-worthy striker-fired 9mm. The FN 503 takes elements of the FN 509 family, and purpose-built a new pistol specifically for concealed carry.

FN 503 Pistol Details

The FN 509 series — from the original to variants like the full-sized FN 509 Tactical — is very popular amongst shooters, so anything borrowing from that platform is a good start.

In what is becoming a trend in this category, the FN 503 comes in highly concealable and thin. The pistol sports a 3.1-inch barrel with recessed target crown to ensure dependable accuracy. Meanwhile, enlarged controls and soft recoil make the 503 comfortable and controllable, according to FN. Low-profile, 509-style iron sights provide the sight picture.

The all-new skateboard tape-style grip texture provides all-day carry comfort. The all-metal trigger, one FN thinks could be the best in its class, breaks crisply and consistently with an average of 5-pound trigger pull. The package results in a carry pistol with trustworthy dependability and reliability, according to FN.

The new 503 also ships with one six-round magazine with pinky extender and one eight-round magazine with grip sleeve in FN’s standard soft-sided zippered case. Lastly for the 503 is MSRP, which comes in at $549. For more information, keep your eyes on FNAmerica.com.
