FN America LLC announced the award of a long-term firearms contract by Brink's Incorporated, a premier provider of secure logistics and security solutions throughout the United States. After extensive testing of all major pistol manufacturers over the course of nine months, Brink's has selected the all-new FN 509 striker-fired 9mm pistol and will issue the new sidearm to its armed security guards.

FN's law enforcement sales team worked with TK Tactical, an FN Law Enforcement Distributor based in Dallas, TX, to develop the lead, and then directly with Brink's to provide a firearms solution that met and exceeded the needs of its armed personnel. The first order of pistols will begin shipping in early June. Brink's Incorporated is the first major private security company to adopt the FN 509 since its official release in April 2017, according to FN.

"We are proud to announce the contract with Brink's, Incorporated," said Mark Cherpes, President and CEO for FN America LLC. "Like FN, Brink's has a long and honored history. Brink's is one of the most iconic private security firms in the world. The decision to purchase the FN 509 is an important achievement for our organization. It is validation of the hard work that our team put into designing, producing and supporting this pistol."

The FN 509 was born out of the company's effort to produce a contender for the U.S. Army's Modular Handgun System (MHS) competition and has been further enhanced to meet the needs of U.S. law enforcement and commercial customers. Built on the proven architecture of the FNS Compact, FN made changes internally and externally to meet the rigorous performance standards of the MHS requirements and further developed the platform into the FN 509 with help from industry experts. Over the course of development, the platform has been tested extensively for reliability, ammunition compatibility, and durability – totaling more than 1 million rounds.
