At Milipol Paris 2017 FN Herstal, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of small arms, will unveil its new specially designed striker pistol for Security Forces: The full-size FN® 509 (9x19mm).
Based on user feedback, FN Herstal has created a handgun offering a new level of durability, reliability and ergonomic design.
The FN® 509’s superior craftsmanship is obvious the moment you pick it up. The slide and grip feature highly effective non-slip surfaces; magazine catch, slide release and safety catch are fully ambidextrous, and interchangeable backstraps adapt to all hand sizes.
This autoloading pistol with a preloaded striker mechanism has been tested successfully with a large number of 9x19mm ammunition types including FN® EP and EPT cartridges.
The FN® 509 is comfortable to shoot, reliable, and accurate. It has a fixed 3-dot luminescent sights, providing fast target acquisition even in low light conditions.
