The FN 509 Midsize MRD now comes in Flat Dark Earth.

Seemingly ever since the introduction of the SCAR, FN rifles and pistols always have one thing in common: They come in the company’s signature Flat Dark Earth. For many FN fans, that color represents the company and its commitment to producing military-grade firearms. We’ve simply come to expect it. They also happen to look really awesome. And now fans of the FN 509 Midsize MRD have a variant in Flat Dark Earth (FDE) as well.

FN 509 Midsize MRD FDE Details

The optics-ready 509 Midsize MRD FDE comes equipped with the company’s low-profile optics-mounting system. Only this variant puts the system into a smaller frame, one easier concealed.

The FN 509 family of pistols feature a striker-fired system. Each pistol comes chambered in 9mm. Additionally, each pistol features FN’s signature cold-hammer-forged barrel with recessed target crown. It includes enhanced slide serrations for easier slide manipulation. Meanwhile, aggressive grip texturing helps ensure a secure grip while shooting.

The new FN Midsize MRD FDE ships in a soft-side case. It comes with wither a 15- or 10-round magazine and all optics mounting hardware. The new FN Midsize MRD FDE version of the Midsize MRD retails for $799. For more information, visit
