Among the releases is the introduction of the FN 509 CC Edge™ XL, a model that displays the modularity of the FN 509 platform. It merges features from the FN 509 Edge series with a compact compensated upper and a full-sized, 17-round frame. The result is a pistol that balances everyday carry convenience with performance. The CC Edge comes with a quick-detach compensator designed to cut muzzle rise by up to 25 percent, while the LS Edge frame offers enhanced grip through improved texturing. This combination promises a steady shooting experience, with notable recoil reduction and quicker sight picture recovery.

“With 18 models across our consumer and law enforcement product lines, the FN 509 series is our flagship pistol line and the foundation where we showcase our industry-leading innovation in the pistol category,” said Chris Cole, Vice President of Sales for FN America. “The continued evolution of our FN 509 series gives our consumers more choice and customization, backed by a brand with more than 130 years of proven manufacturing expertise and unique firearms know-how.”
