While FN has offered some very carry-worthy pistols (see the FNS-9c and the 509 Compact), they haven’t offered a single-stack carry option…until now. FN has just announced the new FN 503, a 6+1 or 8+1 single stack striker-fired 9mm pistol.
Here’s their press release . . .
FN America, LLC is pleased to introduce the FN 503™, a slim 9mm striker-fired pistol designed specifically for concealed carry.
Using the design, performance and reliability standards of the FN 509® family as inspiration, the FN 503 has been purpose-built to conceal quickly and discreetly without compromising on the features and performance FN customers require – like it’s 3.1-inch barrel with recessed target crown to ensure dependable accuracy; enlarged controls and soft recoil that make the FN 503 comfortable and controllable to shoot; and, FN 509-style low-profile iron sights.
The all-new skateboard tape-style grip texture provides all-day carry comfort and the all-metal trigger, arguably the best in its class, breaks crisply and consistently with an average of 5-pound trigger pull, resulting in a carry pistol with trustworthy dependability and reliability.
The FN 503 ships with one 6-round magazine with pinky extender and one 8-round magazine with grip sleeve in FN’s standard soft-sided zippered case. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price of the FN 503 is $549.00.
