    probably the vp9 effect. All these companies saw how well it did against glock and now they are all in.

    You can see in photos both front and rear sights are dovetail and I know on the FNX/FNS Trijicon made the tritium sights so hopefully they make the tritium sights for the LE only version. A phone call to Trij is in order as well my LGS to find out when the 509 will be arriving.

This feels to me like they went with the "we put a bunch of money into R+D, so now we have to sell it". I'm sure it's a nice pistol, but until I hold one and get the "Oh, @%$* yeah" feeling I just can't get excited.
    I'm with you. I have an FNS-9 and absolutely love it. And if all the 509 has is a "bunch of tweeks" than what would drive me to buy another gun like I already have? I actually came here to see if anyone has any ideas on what has been changed. Yeah, I don't think I'll be jumping on this one.

    On THB review, I think it stated the 509 uses XD/SIG P320 dovetail by pure coincidence. I would want to for sure confirm that before buying some sights for it though.
