The FN 509 Compact 9mm is an excellent choice for a concealed carry pistol. It has a compact frame that makes it easy to carry, and the 9mm round is powerful enough for self-defense. The gun also has a good reputation for reliability. The only downside to the FN 509 Compact 9mm is that it does not come with a manual safety. But it means that you have to be careful not to discharge the weapon accidentally.
With our patented low-profile optic mounting system and the unparalleled modularity of the FN 509 platform, the FN 509 Compact MRD joins the ranks with a significant impact in a compact, optics-ready package. Building on the proven FN 509 line, exclusive law enforcement upgrades put every advantage in the hands of officers, with the unmatched accuracy of a percussion pistol.
Why Choose The 509 MRD-Le?
Tritium 3-dot sights witness the MRD for maximum sighting versatility and a clean look, day or night. The industry’s most comprehensive and adaptable optic mounting platform enables gunsmiths to mount standard service-rated optics quickly. The 509 MRD-LE is the choice for agencies that can’t settle for less than 100% reliability. The pistol is a 9mm, striker-fired pistol with a 3.7-inch barrel, a standard 12+1 capacity, and the ability to accept all higher-capacity FN 509 magazines. The patented FN low-profile optic mounting system takes nearly all commercially available miniature red dot optics and features opaque iron sights that are witnessed.
