FN Expands Their 509 Series With New Pistols, Comp Kits and Limited Edition Models

FN’s 509 series of striker-fired handguns may not be the first to come to mind when you think of 9mm handguns, but they’re some of the best, most full-featured semi-automatic pistols on the market. They’re tough, well-made, and FN’s MRD optic mounting system is as good as it gets.

FN’s rolled out some new and limited edition models and is now offering their excellent, quick attach/detach compensators in kits for any 509 handgun.

FN America, LLC is pleased to announce several new additions to the FN 509 series of pistols including brand-new models, limited-time colors and configurations, as well as accessories that give users next-level performance upgrades for their pistol, designed and made by the manufacturer. FN will highlight these new additions at the 2024 SHOT Show, the industry’s all-encompassing shooting, hunting and outdoor trade show.

“With 18 models across our consumer and law enforcement product lines, the FN 509 series is our flagship pistol line and the foundation where we showcase our industry-leading innovation in the pistol category,” said Chris Cole, Vice President of Sales for FN America. “The continued evolution of our FN 509 series gives our consumers more choice and customization, backed by a brand with more than 130 years of proven manufacturing expertise and unique firearms know-how.”

FN 509 CC Edge XL

The FN Edge Series expands with the all-new FN 509 CC Edge™ XL. Demonstrating the modularity of the FN 509 platform, the FN 509 CC Edge XL combines the best of the FN 509 Edge series with the compact and compensated upper combined with the full-sized, 17-round frame, delivering the perfect combination for an everyday carry gun. Featuring the CC Edge slide with quick-detach compensator designed to reduce muzzle rise up to 25-percent and the 17 round full-sized LS Edge frame with improved texturing for secure grip, the FN 509 CC Edge XL delivers an extremely flat shooting experience. Shooters can expect significant recoil reduction that enables faster sight picture recovery especially when shooting with optics, improved speed to target, accuracy, and overall control of the pistol.

FN 509 Fullsize MRD

Complementing the FN 509 Series’ Compact and Midsize MRD models is the all-new FN 509 Fullsize MRD. The pistol features a 4.5-inch-long slide equipped with the company’s patented Low-Profile Optics-Mounting System for users who want a full-sized duty-style pistol for personal or home defense. The additional length of the slide provides a longer sight radius that improves accuracy while the added weight and length of the slide complements the full-sized frame, resulting in a pistol that is easy to shoot with control and offers reduced recoil.

FN 509 Compact MRD with Quick-Detach Compensator

With FN’s patented Low-Profile Optics Mounting System™ and proprietary auto-indexing compensator, the FN 509 Compact MRD with quick-detach compensator delivers full-sized performance in a compact package. The pistol is striker-fired with a compensated barrel featuring up to 25-percent reduction in muzzle rise, making it the most comfortable shooting sub-compact on the market. The compact comes standard with one 12- and one 15-round magazine. The optics mounting system accepts nearly all major optic footprints and features all-black co-witness iron sights. The ambidextrous controls aid in manipulation and the texturing on the two included backstraps provides better recoil management.

FN Compensator Kits

Upgrade your FN 509 Standard, Compact or Midsize performance quickly and simply with the drop-in FN Compensator Kit. First introduced on the FN 509 CC Edge, the compensator’s unique quick-detach (QD) design allows for toolless install and removal from the proprietary non-threaded QD barrel in a matter of minutes, no gunsmith or factory service required.

Designed to reduce muzzle rise up to 25 percent, the FN Compensator significantly decreases felt recoil and features v-style ports on either side that vector gases and flash out of the user’s field of view. The result is a shooting experience that is flatter and more controlled, allowing users to maintain a consistent sight picture from shot to shot.

FN 509 Limited-Edition Models

For a limited time, the FN 509 Tactical will receive special treatment in the form of a robust Cerakote finish in either Midnight Bronze or Tungsten Gray.
