FN announced this week that they are still fully operational and have debuted a new flat dark earth version of their 509 Midsize MRD pistol.
The 9mm FN 509 Midsize MRD, which comes standard with FN’s Low Profile Optics Mounting System, has a slide that allows the user’s choice of more than 10 different miniature red dot optics. Pitched for the carry market, the 509 Midsize features a 4-inch barrel and a 7.4-inch overall length. Weight is 26.5-ounces and, with a 5.2-inch height, uses a flush-fit 15-shot magazine but can accommodate larger capacity FN 509 mags with use of a sleeve.
The FN 509 Midsize MRD has improved surface controls, is reportedly fully ambidextrous, and has a new flatter-faced trigger.
The striker-fired FN 509 Midsize MRD ships with a pair of modular backstraps in a soft-sided case with 15-round magazines and all optics mounting hardware. For state compliance, versions with 10-round mags will be available.
MSRP is $799.
