[Milipol 2017] FN Herstal unveils FN 509 Pistol for Security Forces

http://ift.tt/2zpAhvp

Last week we had “FN Friday” with the new FN SCAR Subcompact Carbine.

FN Herstal are using the Milipol 2017 exhibition to release another Portable Firearm, this time a pistol with focus on Security Forces.

The FN 509 is a full-sized Striker pistol. The FN 509’s slide and grip feature highly effective non-slip surfaces; magazine catch, slide release and safety catch, which are fully ambidextrous, and include interchangeable backstraps adapted to all hand sizes.

From the FN Herstal Press Release:

“At 188mm (7.4in) and approx. 753g (1.66lbs) with a barrel length of 101.6mm (4in), the FN 509 is comfortable to shoot, reliable, and accurate, having a fixed 3-dot luminescent sight that provides fast target acquisition even in low light conditions. The FN 509 also features a tactile and visible loaded chamber indicator and a 17-round capacity magazine (bring the weight to 957g/2.10 bs) allowing for visual instant ammo check.

You can find the new FN 509 at FN’s booth at Milipol Paris 2017, but I suspect the new baby-SCAR will get all of the attention.

You can also find the new IWI Masada pistol at Milipol, as TFB reported about earlier.
