McLean, VA – March 17, 2020) FN America, LLC is pleased to introduce the FN 503™, a slim 9mm striker-fired pistol designed specifically for concealed carry.
Using the design, performance and reliability standards of the FN 509® family as inspiration, the FN 503 has been purpose-built to conceal quickly and discreetly without compromising on the features and performance FN customers require – like it’s 3.1-inch barrel with recessed target crown to ensure dependable accuracy; enlarged controls and soft recoil that make this gun comfortable and controllable to shoot; and, FN 509-style low-profile iron sights.
