Yet another super tempting rebate has been announced, this time from FN America for the FN 509. With all the options for some of the best deals I have seen in the gun market for some time, it sure isn’t making consumer’s lives easier. It is a whole lot cheaper to get into a quality pistol with a respectable number of mags than it has ever been though.
So what is the rebate? Basically, buy a new FN 509 between July 1, 2017 through August 31, 2017 and you get three additional magazines free of charge. At an MSRP of $49 per mag and a street price of about $45, three free mags add up to one of the better mail in rebates currently going on. FN America even takes consumers that live in a state with reduced magazine capacity laws into account by offering the same deal, only with 10 round magazines in lieu of the 17 round magazines.
Personally, I prefer to have at least 5 mags per handgun just to make time at the range more enjoyable and make sure that I have a spare or two should one of my magazines get damaged somehow. After all, mags are a consumable just like everything else used for shooting, they just last a heck of a lot longer than other consumables.
