FN America recently introduced its first-ever .22 LR pistol, the FN 502 Tactical. The company bills it as "the industry’s first slide-mounted red dot on a rimfire handgun."

“With the FN 502 Tactical, we applied the standout features of the FN 509 Tactical to this new rimfire to deliver a shooting experience unlike any other .22 LR handgun,” said Chris Cole, vice president of sales and marketing at FN America, LLC.


The hammer-fired FN 502 Tactical includes an optics-mounting system that is inspired by the FN Low-Profile Optics Mounting System, giving the new .22 LR pistol multiple sighting options with co-witness sights.

Sporting FN’s Tactical feature set, the FN 502 Tactical’s 4.6-inch barrel includes a recessed target-crown, and is threaded 1/2x28-inch pitch to accept most .22-cal. suppressors.

A smooth, single-action hammer-fired pistol, the FN 502 Tactical also boasts ambidextrous controls, along with superior ergonomics and balance.

With the ability to quickly mount most micro red-dot optics or suppressors, the FN 502 Tactical is a capable rimfire pistol straight from the factory.


Says FN America, LLC President and CEO Mark Cherpes:

“We set out to accomplish two primary goals with the FN 502 Tactical—to create a .22 LR pistol with the advanced features and superior accuracy of our current pistol line-up, and deliver a pistol designed for maximum fun on the range. We feel like we’ve met both of these objectives handily. When a customer shoots an FN 502 Tactical for the first time, we’ve seen nothing but pure excitement. FN’s new rimfire handgun has obvious, universal appeal, whether you’re a new shooter looking to master the basics or an advanced user expecting peak performance from FN. The new FN 502 Tactical performs on every level.”

MSRP for the new FN 502 Tactical is $499. Available colors are FDE or black.

Shipping to FN-authorized retailers now, the new FN 502 Tactical rimfire comes in a hard case with one 15-round magazine, one 10-round flush-fit magazine, plus the necessary plates to mount compatible miniature red-dot optics. (Options with two 10-round mags are available.) And since it boasts similar ergonomics to the FN 509, the FN 502 Tactical will fit in most FN 509 Tactical holsters.
