FN 509 COMPACT TACTICAL PISTOL
The FN 509 COMPACT TACTICAL is the smaller version of the original 509 tactical pistol. A lot of options available. Sootch00 loves the 2-tone colors but you can also get it in black. This is a more compact version and makes an excellent concealed carry piece. Has the threaded barrel, which is a cold hammer forge barrel. Night sights are on top, but they are suppressor height so you can apply a suppressor to the end of the barrel, or a compensator.
One thing that Sootch00 loves about FN is their grip texturing; it’s aggressive but not uncomfortable. It just fits in your hand very well, these large little squares just seem to fit and you feel like you’ve got a total grip on the pistol. The FN 509 Compact has an accessory rail, takedown lever, slide release, and metal mag release that drops the mags really well. Included with the FN 509 Compact are a standard 12-round magazine, a 15-round magazine, and a 24-round magazine with a sleeve. Sootch00 took the FN 509 Compact on the range and he was not disappointed. With the grip he felt he had a really solid hold on the firearm, the trigger is nice and crisp. You can put your micro red dot on it but he took it to the range as is. The suppressor hi sights were very easy to see. He had no malfunctions whatsoever.
“Guys this gun is ready to go, it’s flag shooting and it has a lot of versatility. It also has the FN name standing behind it. In case you didn’t know, FN makes firearms for the U.S. Military,” says Sootch00.
