FN America recently announced the release of its newest addition to its pistol lines, the 509 Tactical BLK. The original FN 509 hit the market in 2017. We first brought you coverage of the original Full-Sized FN 509 Tactical 9mm Pistol last June, and we came away impressed.

“Like most Americans, I want options, and the FN 509 Tactical offers just that,” said Greg Lickenbrock in his review. “You can dress it up for a Rambo excursion or leave it “low pro” for simple range sessions. This is a gun you can trust from a trusted company. There’s a reason FN has been making the U.S. military’s M4s, M16s and M249 SAWs for years. The company knows what works and what doesn’t. And this pistol definitely works.”

FN 509 Tactical BLK Features

Now the 509 Tactical BLK adds a matte black finish to the popular platform. But it left nothing behind from the previous model. As such, the BLK 9mm, striker-fired pistol utilizes the company’s Low-Profile Optics Mounting System. Additionally, this system accommodates more than 10 commercially-available miniature red dot optics systems. Also, each optic co-witnesses with suppressor-height night sights.

A slide cap protects iron sight alignment during hard use. Meanwhile, the 4.5-inch, cold hammer-forged, stainless steel barrel features a target crown and is threaded 1/2×28 to accept aftermarket 9mm suppressors.

Above all, 24-round magazines provide plenty of firepower. The FN 509 Tactical BLK retails for $1,049.
