FN America launched its summer promotion, offering customers three free magazines with the purchase of any new FN 509 striker-fired pistol through Aug. 31.

The exclusive magazine design touts an all-metal magazine body with a polymer base pad and 17-round capacity. All mags are coated with a proprietary compound that increases the longevity and durability. The magazines typically retail for $49.

FN says consumers living in states that require limited capacity magazines will instead be eligible to receive 10-round capacity magazines.

“The FN 509 comes with two magazines, either in 10 or 17 rounds,” said Tom Scott, director of marketing for FN America, in a statement. “This promotional offer will give our customers a total of five magazines, making it easier to participate in training courses that typically require five mags and ensuring that more time is spent shooting rather than loading mags on the range.”

The magazine promotion is a means to get more consumers on board with FN’s 509. The pistol is a striker-fired 9mm duty handgun and was an effort to produce a contender for the Army’s Modular Handgun System. The FN 509 is equipped with a cold hammer-forged barrel, cocking serrations, enhanced grip textures and glow-in-the-dark high-profile sights.
