Manuel safety removal on M18, can it be done? Login/Join

Looking at an M18 and really not happy with the manuel safety it has. Is there a way to remove that manuel safety and the FCU will function like a standard non manuel safety FCU would?

If not, I guess I could shave the safety down but I do not really want to do that. Mu local fun store has an M18 for $580.00 and I really liked it except the safety on the side.. Thanks for any help here...

Yes, but you need the correct factory replacement parts (that Sig won't sell you) to do it.

I did it with a Sig M17 Bravo. I found a person online that had a P320 FCU and wanted the manual safety, we swapped parts and after a bit of talking each other through the process, I had a M17 Bravo without the manual safety and he had a P320 with manual safety.

.

Call Alex, the owner of AB Prototype, he converts non-safety P320 into Manual Safety versions.
(www.ABprototype.com/p320-manual-safety-conversion)

The parts are not difficult, it is cut in the FCU that needs attention and if anyone can plug the whole it will be Alex, he is an excellent machinist and a gunsmith that specializes on the P320 platform.

It sure looks like they will sell it. Part 26.
