First post in the new area!
I picked up a FN 509 Tactical earlier this week, it's my first FN product but probably not my last.
It's the first pistol I've seen with the features of a threaded barrel, optics mounting system and suppressor height sights in an inclusive package. It comes with 3 mags, a 17 round and 2 24 round mags and the suppressor sights are tritium night sights.
This being my first FN, I don't have anything to compare whether this pistol is as overbuilt as it is due to being a MHS entrant or FN handguns are built like tanks. I'm primarily a CZ and Walther shooter, heavy on the CZ side.
When comparing this with my CZ P10Cs, a couple of things come to mind.
1. The FN 509 Tactical trigger out of the box is the worst striker trigger I've experienced. The Apex flat facer trigger is going to be a must. I've been spoiled a bit by the HBI CZ P10C flat face triggers.
2. The FN is built like a tank
The FN will be shot sometime this weekend and I'm pretty excited about what it will offer in its final configuration of a Trijicon RMR, Apex trigger, Streamlight TLR1 and a Rugged Obsidian 9mm can.
