I can see the bottom hole, but I've pried up and can not see the top release hole. Am I doing something wrong, any ideas? I'm starting to mark up the lever....

The FNP's had the two hole release points. The FNX uses a .028 Allen set screw to retain the safety lever. Don't pry on it without loosening that set screw. It's the same size allen wrench as the Crimson Trace lasers use to adjust their windage and elevation if you have a Crimson Trace laser on anything. Otherwise you'll probably have to order a small allen wrench set online.

Do you have a picture you can link us to? How much will they be?
Here are several images of a the proof of concept PLA printed version of what the 6061 Aluminum selector lever's units will look like they, The levers are easy to make however the main shaft that goes through the pistol is going to be made of Stainless steel and will be more costly.I an doing my best to keep the cost down but have no final pricing as of yet.

Thanks ~Jrod.

Jarod, thats pretty cool what you have so far. Would you consider what it might cost to do some all in stainless, or if even possible without too much extra hassle? (redesign etc)

Though it could get a little nutty, if the cost was near that of an entire pistol.

Having them melonite processed like the slide on the black models would be pretty awesome. An individual could have that done.

Just wanted to pop in and let you know that I'm interested in buying a metal safety/decocker for my FNX-9. Please keep us posted on your progress and their availability, thanks!

Thanks for the assistance everyone, the 0.28 hex wrench did the trick nicely. The new decock only FCG installed in less than 2 minutes.
