If Only FN Made a 509-series Longslide. Oh, Wait

Earlier this year, FN released the Model 509 LS Edge, with the “LS” referring to the extended 5-inch barrel and corresponding lengthened slide. Optics-ready for just about every micro red dot on the market, it has a lot going on.

Due to the lightening cuts in the slide and polymer frame, the FN 509 Edge LS is the same size as an M1911 but, loaded with 18 rounds of 147-grain 9mm and topped with a Leupold Delta Point Pro, it weighs just 36 ounces.

I’ve been kicking the tires on one for a minute. Check out my initial thoughts after the jump.

    Owned a standard 509.  Poor accuracy and trigger.  Too, chronic mag release problems for which I found quite a few owner complaints online.  Fixed mine by replacing the release.  I’m kinda skeptical of any 509 having been disappointed once.
