FN has given its 509 Tactical series pistols a big bore treatment for 2023, stretching them to run 10mm Auto and .45 ACP. Announced just prior to SHOT Show, we made sure to hit up the FN booth as soon as we made it to the floor in Las Vegas to get a closer look at these FDE beauties.

Both new FN 510 and FN 545 pistols include the company's bomb-proof Low-Profile Optics Mounting System that fits just about any micro red-dot footprint on the market, fully ambidextrous controls, suppressor-height three-dot night sights with tritium inserts, and a 4.71-inch extended threaded barrel that accepts most comps and suppressors.

Besides FDE, which is the default for FN products in recent years among its fans, the guns will also be available in black for that one guy in the Midwest who prefers a more noir lifestyle. (Photo: Chris Eger/Guns.com)

"We pioneered the Tactical feature set in the FNX-45 and FN 509 Tactical pistols, introducing the industry’s first pistol that shipped from the factory with a threaded barrel, optics mount and extended capacity, and until now, the FNX-45 Tactical had the highest capacity of any .45 ACP pistol available from the factory," said Chris Johnson, FN's Senior Product Manager, Pistols, told Guns.com. 

The MSRP, regardless of caliber or magazine size, is $1,139, which is only about $35 more than the ask on the FN 509 Tactical.
