What are you seeing the 509 with night sights sell for locally?

Thanks

Have not seen one locally but Gunbroker seems to have a few.

I have only seen FDE 509's with tritium night sights. No black 509's with tritium's.
All the black 509's had Luminescent sights. Its funny some dealers try to pass the Luminescent sights off as night sights.
And in my opinion that's a form of scam.
The FDE models with true tritium night sights IIRC are around the $550 range or so here in Charlotte NC.
Be careful and when ordering and make sure the dealer tells you they are without a doubt 100% tritium.
For some reason some of the area dealers have been either very dumb or knowingly deceiving on the NS's on these 509's.

This one was definitely black/tritium. Thanks for the good info.

Make certain when they say "night sights" they mean actual night sights. I ordered one from Big Daddy Gun Brokers through GB and specifically asked about night sights, which they said it had and confirmed. When I received the pistol, it had the glow in the dark sights. They claimed that's what FN told them was "night sights". Rather than calling BS and sending it back to them, I kept it and just stuck a set of TruGlo TFX Pro sights on it. If you go a similar route, Don't try using the FNS sights. Order the Sig #8 sights front & rear. They work fine.

Paid $549.00 yesterday for my all black 509. Just 3 dot sights.
