I had thought the FNP-45 was going to be SA/DA with a safety, similar to a Var:1 USP. Now however, all the sources I can find, including the nice G&A article, refer to the ambi fire control levers as decockers.

Is there no manual safety, allowing for cocked and locked condition?

Was the presence of such a safety/set-up all a figment of my deranged mind?


This is hardly a deal breaker for my interest in the FNP-45. I could even understand how SA/DA is a smarter option from the viewpoint of marketing towards the LE community.

I'm just trying to get my facts straight on features of this handgun.


Thanks,
B.

The only safety the FNP line really has is not touching the trigger until you want to fire. Or the half cocked position. Truly, no gun has a safety: at least that was how I was taught.

As I understand the rest of the FNP lineup, they offer a single action only gun (cocked and locked) as well as a DA/SA... If you are not familiar with DA/SA, there is typically a decocker to safely lower the hammer... This is how this gun is "made safe". On the DA/SA the decock lever is where the safety would be on a SA gun.

It is my understanding that the USG versions of the FNP pistols will have a safety as well as a de-cocker, thus being like the USP Variant 1.

From information I have seen the only USG versions we wont see any time soon are the FNP9-M and the .357 sig version.

Thanks Cooter.
I finally noticed the FAQ threads, and found the info about the FNP-45 USG.
