Re: New P-64 and range report

Welcome to the forum. Hoping you have time to charge your weapon could be deadly choice. What if you have to use one or both hands to create separation from an attacker at close range while you draw? Plenty of utube vids out there showing how fast an attacker can cover ground to get to you. Here's ...

Re: bbl. swap on FEG R61

Ok, checking back in. Since I did the barrel swap this thing has become my most used cc gun. I love the construction and compact size and it has been 100% function reliable.

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

Re: FEG R61

Ok. Jumped on the barrel swap last night. After it was done, would have to say it was easier than I thought. 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...

FEG R61

Is this THE smallest handgun chamberd in 9x18 or is the P64 smaller ? Thanks guys. Oh and buy the way the 9x18 barrel came in and looks great. Plan to barrel swap next weekend. I almost have some reserve. This thing shoots fantastic . But sometimes you want what you want and I really want this thing...

Re: Can I come back home ?

It was originally 9x18 as marked on slide but was changed to .380 at some point. Numrich has the 9x18 bbl. I’d like to change it back
