    Gun Show here in Fulton today.....


    Import (CAI), dark bore but strong rifling, no cracks in the stock, non matching. No pitting or rust....$500 cash and carry/no paper work/tax.....will clean up reasonably well....

    edit.......while cleaning, the receiver, stock and magazine are matching...bolt is not serialized......the bore was dark from being slathered in grease (along with the rifle under the stock, the receiver and the magazine was filled with grease.......bore is bright after a good cleaning....doesn't look like it has been shot since importation.....I don't think CAI has imported any No 5's in the last few years that I know of.......so I'm thinking it is an older import that sat in someone's safe.....will try to clean the stock up later.......no cracks were found in the stock or forearm which is nice........

    Nice! The thumb safety delete is a deal breaker around these parts though. Are they offered with one?

    Unfortunately, I don’t believe they make a version of the 509 tactical with a manual safety. The closest thing would be the FNX 9 but that’s hammer fired instead of striker fired if I’m not mistaken.
