It appears the new FN 509 Compact MRD is in direct competition with the P365 and the new Springfield Hellcat. It is a little more expensive and a tad larger and heavier than the Hellcat, which is a slight bit larger and heavier than the P365. But FN’s new offering, a compact version of the FN 509, comes optics ready with adapter plates for about 10 different red dot sights. Both Springfield and Sig have higher priced versions that are rds capable for a bit more money. The FN 509 seems to have the same ammo capacity as the P365 (10/12/15). It would seem that there is increasing competition in the high capacity sub-compact arena...competition is good!
