The wave of new 10mm pistol offerings continues, this time with the release of the FN 510 Tactical from FN America. The 510 builds on FN’s successful 500 series and offers all of the features we’ve come to expect in a modern combat semi-auto; optics readiness, a precision trigger, night sights, and a suppressor-ready threaded barrel.
One thing that really stands out is the FN510’s capacity. It comes with an already healthy 15 round flush magazine along with an extended 22-round mag. That’s a lot of 10mm firepower. The FN 510 has an MSRP: $1,139.00

Meet the most commanding defensive pistol ever imagined. The FN 510 Tactical carries 22+1 rounds of 10mm at the ready and can stop a bear in its tracks. But holding all the power and capacity doesn’t matter if you can’t put all those rounds on target, so it’s made for pinpoint control – red-dot-ready, with a crisp trigger and unrivaled ergonomics.
Holding all the power and capacity doesn’t matter if you can’t put all those rounds on target, so it’s made for pinpoint control – red dot-ready, with a crisp trigger and unrivaled ergonomics. All the elements for a premium shooting experience are onboard, purpose-built into the most commanding defensive pistol available.
The FN 510 Tactical holds an industry-first 22+1 of 10mm Auto. Why? Because we could. With unrivaled capacity and stopping power, this powerhouse is purpose-built for defense. A flush-fit 15-rd nickel-coated steel body magazine is included when the extended magazine isn’t practical for concealed carry.
This is the first 10mm pistol you’ll want to keep shooting, a key reason for stacking 22-rounds in the magazine. Renowned for its high energy, the 10mm Auto cartridge compares closely to .357 Magnum, and felt recoil is the reason why many leave their big bores in the gun safe. FN tamed the beast with the advanced ergonomics, inspired by the FN 509® pistol. The ideal combination of frame textures, grip angle, palm swell and slide–to–frame ratios work together to tame recoil and control every shot.
The FN Low-Profile Optics Mounting System™ milled in the slide provides users a direct–mount for more than 15 micro red dots, co-witnessing most optics with the suppressor-height, tritium night sights. Complete with a precision-tuned fire control group, the smooth trigger take-up, positive wall and clean, approximately 6-pound break sets a new standard in striker-fired big bores. With the hammer-forged, target-crowned barrel, every element of the FN 510 Tactical is made for down range accuracy.
