Re: bbl. swap on FEG R61

Range report. To start with Because we are in the rainy season I never got to really see what the accuracy was with the .380 barrel. But today I finally got to do some testing with the 9x18. 0 malfunctions out of 100 rounds, 50 Tula and 50 Monarch. Both 94 grn. Into about 70 rounds the gun was very ...

Re: bbl. swap on FEG R61

I agree. Even if they are the same a new fresh spring should be installed.

Re: bbl. swap on FEG R61

I have not changed the recoil spring. All I can find is the one for the P63. It would be to long due to barrel length. The pistol shoots really well and it does not eject the empty shells very far so at the moment I’m ok with what I got. Soooooo now if I had a P63 barrel that had the last 4/10s of t...

Re: bbl. swap on FEG R61

This may be the wrong place to post this but l now have a excellent .380 barrel for a R 61 or R59 or SMC that a would like to trade for a FEG R59 R61 or P63 mag. However, if someone really needs it I will send it to you free of charge.

Re: bbl. swap on FEG R61

Barrel swap went well. Not a hard job at all. Now that I see how it works, I think I could do one in about 20 or 30 minutes. Love the 9x18 it’s has a bit more bark than the .380

Remove ejector ,Remove hammer, tap out barrel pin, tap out barrel with rubber mallet, ( this was easy it taped right out with no trouble) tap in new barrel, again it went right in. The only t...
