Getting in some range time with the new FN 509 Tactical (VIDEOS)

Getting in some range time with the new FN 509 Tactical (VIDEOS)


The newest iteration of FN’s bid for the Army’s Modular Handgun System is factory-ready for most mini red dots and suppressors– but how does it shoot?

To answer that question, Tim Harmsen with the Military Arms Channel spends some time with a commercially-caught 509 Tactical specimen on which he mounts an optic and Blackhawk can. While a lot of things go right, there is a moment of pause.

Featuring both 17- and 24-round magazines, the updated 509 comes standard with suppressor-height night sights and a threaded barrel for a retail of $1,049, suggested. The gun is compatible with a number of popular red dots including the Trijicon RMR Type II, Leupold Deltapoint Pro, Burris Fastfire III, and Vortex Venom, all with no milling needed and the ability to co-witness with the factory sights intact.

As a follow-up to MAC’s Slickguns Review, Larry Vickers, who had a hand in the 509s development, runs a shorter (7-minute) vid on it below.
