Correct. The USG models are FDE only. My thoughts on why the USG's are more expensive has to do with the amount that will be manufactured VS. the changes in fire control groups. The Regular DA/SA are the most common and there fore will be cheaper due to availability and the fact that the tooling has probably paid for itself by now. Obviously with the manual safety on the USG models there had to be some changes. I thought they were just going to carry over the Browning parts but I must say, I don't think that is the case. I got to hold a USG40 today and the Safety/Decocking lever operated much nicer than my Browning. I was very impressed that that was cleaned up. The only thing I wish is that they made the lever more contoured to the frame like the 45. If the USG models sell well, it might be possible that the price will go down sometime due to the amount of units and availability going up. But I use that phrase lightly cause nothing seems to be going down in price these days. Although I do not know if FN has put a cap on how many they wish to produce. That will also control prices.
