The folks over at FN America decided to give their popular 509 Midsize 9mm pistol the full Tactical treatment. 

Debuted at the 151st NRA Annual Meetings in Houston, Texas, late last month, the new FN 509 Midsize Tactical picks up an extended threaded barrel, an optics-ready slide with suppressor-height night sights that co-witness with MRDs, and a 24-round magazine. The company debuted the standard Glock 19-comparable Midsize in 2019 and it has proved a hit with the carry market ever since, expanding to models with a red dot cut and options for FDE.

With that, the evolution to include a Tactical variant in the catalog only seems logical.

The Midsize Tactical frame includes both a 15-round standard flush-fit magazine and an extended 24-round magazine (shown), the latter standard with FN 509 Tactical models. Note the 4.5-inch threaded barrel which is cold hammer-forged and suppressor-ready with a 1/2x28TPI pitch, all housed within a 4-inch slide. Weight is 30 ounces. (Photo: Chris Eger/
