Manufacturer’s Description

The FNH FN 509 is a striker-fired pistol built on a black polymer frame with a steel slide, and chambered in 9mm. FNH says this gun is an evolved version of its FNS-9 pistol and the pistol it developed for the U.S. military’s modular handgun system (MHS) system. Other features include:

  • An external extractor with a loaded chamber indicator;
  • front and rear cocking serrations on the slide;
  • a cold hammer forged stainless steel barrel with a recessed target crown;

  • two interchangeable backstraps (flat and arched) with lanyard eyelets;
  • an ambidextrous slide stop lever;
