FN America is growing its offering in the FN 509 line with the introduction of the FN 509 LS Edge. By the looks of it, this firearm is tuned to perform. The FN 509 LS Edge has the looks of a gun that is stripped from the Silver Screen and ready to run the gauntlet.
“FN’s commitment to developing performance-driven products has reached a new level with the FN 509 LS Edge,” said Mark Cherpes, CEO for FN American, LLC. “The foundation of unmatched FN craftsmanship and battle-proven reliability combined with expert counsel from professional users, allowed FN to develop the most advanced FN 509 pistol to date.”
Building on the proven FN 509 platform, the FN teamed with tier one operators and world champion pistol shooters, to strategically enhance and purposely combine critical components of the new FN 509 LS Edge. The end result is a handgun that delivers superior versatility, accuracy, control and speed.
The five-inch hammer-forged target-crown 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-witness with a micro red dot, users instinctively acquire a sight picture after their draw.
Achieving the ideal balance, the 509 LS Edge’s lighting-cut Long Slide compliments the graphite anodized base plates and flared aluminum magazine well, resulting in a flat shooting pistol tat 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.
The short take up and positive reset of the flat-faced trigger allows for speedy 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.
