FNS 40 Long Slide

Post by Cwc » 09 Sep 2014, 18:03

Seems to be some confusion at my LGS whether or not this model is available with a manual safety. I know I have seen it mentioned as well as pictures in different articles. Anyone seen one with a manual safety or have anymore information.

Seems to be confusion all around the interwebs about it too. Saw on fnforum where a guy claimed to have a FNS-40 with a stainless with a manual safety but couldn't find one in all black.
Also saw a picture of a stainless long slide (but only had a 4" barrel) which had a manual safety on it.
Maybe it depends on how long of a slide you want? 4" yes, 5" no?

FNH's website has no safety on their pics but I'd still recommend contacting them for clarification.
Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

5" long slide version does not have a manual safety. Contacted FN and rep told me the long slide had early publicity that mentioned optional manual safety listed by mistake. You are correct 4" yes and 5" no.
