The new FN 510 Tactical 10mm is built from the FN 509 Tactical platform, with upgrades from the 9mm caliber to 10mm Auto. Including an optics-ready slide and threaded barrel for suppressors or compensators, this is ready for you to accessorize however you want to. One of the most incredible new features is the capacity: each one comes with both a flush-fit 15-round magazine and an extended 22-round magazine, allowing you to carry up to 37+1 rounds of powerful 10mm Auto ammo! Available in FDE or Black, this is a double-action striker-fired 10mm with a crisp trigger, unrivaled ergonomics, and an enhanced-grip frame.
Just like any caliber, the 10mm Auto has both fans and naysayers. What it all really comes down to is what you want out of your gun. The 10mm is a good personal defense weapon, whether at home or in the mountains. Depending on ammo selection, and there’s a lot to choose from, it can be everything from a target range gun to a home defense gun, to a carry pistol, to a truck gun, to a bear gun. You read that right, with the proper selection of ammunition the 10mm is an appropriate caliber for backcountry bear defense, whereas the 9mm and 45 ACP are both considered ballistically inadequate.
Since competing calibers in the “bear gun” class are usually revolvers, like 357 Mag, .41 Mag, and 44 Mag, they lack the same capacity that a semi-auto offers. Where a revolver in these calibers will usually have 5-6 rounds, and no more than 8, they just don’t match up with the minimum 10+1 you’re going to get from a 10mm Auto (like those for compliant states). The new FN 510 Tactical gives you the option of the flush-fit 15-round mag or the extended 22+1 magazine, exponentially increasing your odds with follow-up shots. Add to that the bulky carry experience of a revolver vs. the slim profile of a semi-auto, and it’s easy to see why so many folks in bear country are making the switch to 10mm Auto.
The MSRP on the new FN510 Tactical is $1,139.
