FN 509 Family Expands with Concealed Carry Compact Model

(McLean, VA – January 18, 2021) FN America, LLC is pleased to announce the release of the FN 509 Compact, joining the ranks of the FN 509 family of striker-fired, 9mm pistols. This new configuration delivers the same reliability and high-performance of the FN 509 family in a compact, highly concealable package.

“The FN 509 Compact model compliments the Compact MRD, equipped with our patented optics-mounting system, and offers users an all-new concealed carry option in the FN 509 family,” said Chris Cole, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for FN America, LLC. “The low-profile carry sights with high-visibility front sight make this an ideal choice for professional and civilian CCW users.”


The FN 509 Compact, designed to meet the needs of today’s concealed carry users, has been refined for deep concealment with low-profile rear blackout iron sights. A high-visibility front sight aids in low-light target acquisition. The snag-free sight set combined with the included 12-round and 15-round magazines, ensure a discreet and high capacity choice for everyday carry. With two interchangeable backstraps and advanced grip texturing, users benefit from the proven ergonomics of the FN 509 family, in a more compact and concealable package.
