Today FN announced their latest pistol in the 509 series, the Compact Tactical. This brings the best factory optics cut on the market to the subcompact market. This size of pistol is arguably what most benefits from optics, bringing enhanced accuracy in a small package. The addition of a threaded barrel also allows users to attach suppressor, compensators, and other muzzle devices. Pistols will be available in both flat black, and FN's FDE coloration.
