Versatility

The FN Low-Profile Optics-Mounting System, combined with the green fiber optic front sight, allows users to run iron sights and a co-witnessed miniature red dot optic. Quickly mounting a MRD is enabled with four included optic mounting plates. The midsized frame gives users the feel of a full-sized pistol that can still be comfortably concealed. An ambidextrous slide stop and two interchangeable backstraps allow users to further customize the FN 509 LS Edge, matching any hand size.


Accuracy

The five-inch hammer-forged target-crowned barrel delivers unmatched accuracy. With the 6.7-inch Long Slide bearing a 0.040” fiber optic front sight, the extended sight picture improves target acquisition and tracking. Additionally, the green fiber optic front sight co-witnesses with a micro red dot, users instinctively acquire a sight picture after their draw. The duty-rated, flat-faced trigger breaks cleanly at 90 degrees and features a reduced pull weight of around four to five pounds.

Control

The 509 LS Edge’s lightening-cut Long Slide compliments the graphite anodized base plates and flared aluminum magazine well, resulting in a flat shooting pistol that racks faster, recovers instantly and tracks perfectly. Maximum control is gained with the frame’s full-height stippling, ensuring a full-contact 360-degree grip, locking into the hands under fire to reduce muzzle flip and control recoil.

Speed

The short take up and positive reset of the flat-faced trigger allows for quick follow-up shots, while the green fiber optic front sight enables faster target acquisitions and transitions between shots. The flared, graphite anodized aluminum magazine well and weighted base plates of the 17-round magazines make for lightning-fast reloads, getting you back on target faster than ever.

The FN 509 LS Edge, part of a performance-driven series of firearms bearing the FN name, is shipping to an FN dealer near you. Learn more about the FN 509 LS Edge by visiting www.fnamerica.com/edgeseries.
