Fans of the popular FN 509 series just got yet another new model to choose from. The new FN 509 Compact, designed for concealed carry, comprises the latest striker-fired 9mm in the family.
FN 509 Compact Details
The new 509 Compact borrows from previous models in the line. However, this one stands apart as a compact, highly concealable package.
“The FN 509 Compact model compliments the Compact MRD, equipped with our patented optics-mounting system, and offers users an all-new concealed carry option in the FN 509 family,” said Chris Cole, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for FN America, LLC. “The low-profile carry sights with high-visibility front sight make this an ideal choice for professional and civilian CCW users.”
The 509 Compact features low-profile rear blackout iron sights. A high-visibility front sight aids in low-light target acquisition, according to FN. The snag-free sight set, combined with 12- and 15-round magazines, make for a formidable fight stopper. Throw in two interchangeable backstraps for a custom fit, and the 509 Compact delivers versatility as well. Finally, advanced grip texturing helps ensure EDC users always have a sure grip.
