Recently, FN America announced their new 509™ striker-fired pistol. Though not the first striker-fired pistol from FN, the new 509 appears to have combined a lot of the best characteristics from several available options and combined them into one very nice pistol. In fact, the 509™ was designed to meet the rigorous U.S. Army MHS competition requirements.
The new FN 509™ is going to have an MSRP of $649.00. Though a little on the high-end for this highly competitive market, FN’s outstanding reputation for high quality firearms should keep the new 509 as a strong competitor. Especially with the performance standards the 509™ meets.
