FN America recently announced two new limited-edition versions of its popular FN 509 pistol. The new variants come in a striking flat dark earth (FDE) slide and olive drab green (ODG) frame color combination. The unique color combination unites two classic military colors on the same pistol in a unique way.
The FDE and ODG FN 509 pistols come configured in both Standard and Tactical models. The 509 Standard features a 4-inch slide and barrel, ambidextrous controls, fixed luminescent iron sights and 17-round standard capacity. Meanwhile, the FN 509 Tactical features a 4.5-inch barrel with 4-inch slide, FN Low-Profile Optics Mounting System, fixed three-dot sights and 17-round and 24-round magazines. FN also offers 10-round magazine versions for states with draconian magazine capacity restrictions.
FN 509 Features
The FN 509 Series comprises FN’s signature striker-fired pistol line for duty or carry. The 509 features double-action operation, external extractor, loaded chamber indicator and front and rear cocking serrations. Inside, a cold hammer-forged barrel features a recessed target crown, along with a polished chamber and feed ramp.
The frame utilizes a polymer construction with replaceable steel frame/slide rails. An enhanced grip texture helps deliver more shooter control. Meanwhile, interchangeable backstraps enable shooters to customize the fit. Each pistol features a Picatinny accessory mounting rail.
A fully ambidextrous slide stop lever and magazine release deliver further versatility. Finally, each magazine features a high visibility, low-friction follower.
The two-tone, FN 509 FDE/ODG pistols are available for a limited time, exclusively through Bill Hicks & Co., Ltd. For more information, visit billhicksco.com.
