FN 509 LS Edge ($1,500)

FN has been at the pistol game for a while now and they have a hit on their hands with the 509-series pistols. The 509 was developed for the US Army’s modular handgun system and contains the DNA necessary to compete at a high level on todays crowded field. This pistol features FN’s Low Profile Optics Mounting System — a plate adapter design that facilitates the direct mounting of more than 10 optics, all of which will co-witness with FN’s suppressor height sights, to include Leupold’s Delta Point Pro. It’s not a stretch to say that FN’s optic system is likely the best plate system in the business. The 509 LS Edge Tactical is a factory hot rod competition pistol featuring a 5-inch target crowned, cold hammer forged barrel, a lightweight flat faced competition trigger, slide lightening cuts, oversized controls and substantially flared magazine well to help house up to a 24-round magazine. If you’re looking for a turnkey comp or a nightstand gun to be reckoned with, the 509 LS Edge Tactical is your huckleberry.
