bbl. swap on FEG R61

Post by bigduke6 » January 3rd, 2020, 9:53 pm

Ok I got a R61 and slide is marked for 9 mak. But is chaimberd in .380
I found some new 9 mak bbl. and I’d like to change it back. So my question is once the bbl. pin is removed is the bbl. pressed in or will I be able to remove it by hand ? Anything else I shoul know ? Thanks.

Does the serial number on the Frame start with a "B" or a different prefix?

I believe one you remove the pin, you will need to press it out, and the new one will need to be pressed in.

Let’s say you can get the barrel on. Where are you going to get R61/SMC918 recoil springs?

PA63 springs. Same gun except the grip is shorter.
