FN Introduces FN 503 Slim 9MM Pistol for Concealed Carry

(McLean, VA – March 17, 2020) 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.

    Wishing for a Glock 48 Sized gun from FN

      Well considering how FN is only 5 years behind Glock on a subcompact single stack I would say that you should expect a 48 sized gun in…….2024.

    I like FN!
    However, I feel like this handgun doesn’t really stand out in the concealed carry market. There are already quite a few choices out these, and 6 or 8 round capacity, doesn’t have me all that excited.

    Kinda wish FN would have made this around Hi Power magazines…

    I suppose having an “under-capacity’d” sub-compact pistol is better than having nothing at all in the product lineup.

    If only the slide release was ambidextrous or reversible…
