FN America is enhancing its Edge Series with its all-new FN 509 CC Edge, which builds on the tactical features showcased in the company's 509 LS Edge while providing an easy-to-shoot and concealable package for self-defense.
Equipped with a shortened frame and slide, the FN 509 CC Edge measures just 7.5" long and is equipped with a 4.2" barrel topped off with FN's self-indexing compensator, which is claimed to reduce muzzle flip by as much as 25 percent. This makes it easier to get back on target, ensuring fast, accurate follow-up shots. One of the stand-out features of the new pistol is its barrel, which is treated with a gold titanium-nitride finish that doesn't just look good, it also reduces friction and fouling build-up. The gold-colored barrel is visible through lightening cuts in the slide, which reduce weight and speed up slide cycling.
Also found at the top end of the gun is FN's Low-Profile Optics Mounting System, and four adapter plates are included with each gun, enabling owners to mount most popular micro red-dots on the market. This mounting system is paired with a set of suppressor-height iron sights, which can be co-witnessed with a mounted optic. The front sight features a bright-green, fiber-optic tube that's easily visible for accurate shooting.
Each FN 509 CC Edge includes a flat-faced trigger with a built-in safety blade, as well as an ambidextrous slide-stop lever and single-sided, reversible magazine release. A three-slot Picatinny accessory rail on the frame makes it easy to add lights and lasers. The CC Edge ships with a single 12-round magazine and two 15-round magazines, all of which are equipped with weighted aluminum base pads to ensure magazines drop quickly and freely, enabling users to get the gun back into action quickly. Two interchangeable backstraps are also included. The gun weighs 25.5 ozs., unloaded.
Each FN 509 CC Edge also comes with a soft-sided carrying case made of ballistic nylon. The suggested retail price on the pistol is $1,569. For more information, visit fnamerica.com.
