Gun Descriptions

The FN 509 Tactical, an extension of the FN 509 family, is based on FNs submission pistol that the U.S. Army tested for its Modular Handgun Trials, but includes the significant improvements to the design that were implemented in the FN 509. The pistol features the companys patent-pending Low-Profile Optics Mounting System that enables the platform to accept more than ten commercially-available miniature red dot (MRD) optics that co-witness with the suppressor-height night sights and remain adaptable to future optics releases with no requirement of direct milling of the slide. The slide cap, for use when not shooting with an optic, has raised sight wings that protect iron sight alignment if the pistol is dropped or jostled, and provides a textured ramp for racking the slide against a belt loop, pant pocket or boot. An FN-signature 4.5-inch, cold hammer-forged, stainless-steel barrel with target crown, x 28 threads that accept the bulk of 9mm suppressors available and thread cap with integrated O-ring to prevent loosening during use complete the top end.  Lastly, the 24-round magazines, nearly identical in length to the pistols slide, maximize ammunition capacity without impacting carry convenience.

Heckler & Koch's eagerly awaited Tactical model of the hailed VP series of handguns has finally arrived in the form of VP9 Tactical. With all the highly sought after characteristics of the larger frame VP pistols but now with a Threaded barrel. Lets dive into a few of the features that sets the VP series of pistols apart from the competition. You can't start the conversation without the trigger. The VP trigger far surpasses anything found in competing pistols with a short light take up with a solid single action type break followed by a short positive reset. Additionally ergonomics were not overlooked and the use of interchangeable back straps and side grip panels help mold the VP pistol to your hand. A picatinny rail and ambidextrous controls ensure that the VP9 Tactical can be handled and used by just about anyone. HK continues to lead the way with it's "No Compromise" approach to design and production.
