I want to know if anyone has had a similar experience with their FEG PJK-9HP? Mine accepts Browning and Meg-Car magazines but will not lock the South African 17 round magazines in place. I have seen other writings claiming the PJK-9HP will accept all High-Power magazines and parts. I have always held that the FEGs are not exact copies. What say you? Regards, Richard

Richard, have you checked the hole to see if it is the same size and if the length away from top to bottom is the same as your other mags? Remember the golden rule! always modify the cheapest part! In this case the mag. (unless the mag release is cheaper on the FEG) Haha, GTO

I will probably not alter anything.The FEG works fine with the magazines it came with, Meg-Car, or Browning types. I guess my point is missed and that is FEG pistols are not built to the same specs as my Brownings. Regards, Richard

Hello, Richard. After you have shot your rebuilt HP, let us know how it performs and how it seems to be holding up. Hopefully, you were just unlucky in the original FM and have a HP now that will hold up to lots and lots of shooting.

Best.

Stephen A. Camp,

I have shot the FM/FN High-Power(HP)hybred. I had some problems with extraction due to the ammunition not being loaded hot enough for the spring that I was using. The ammo was PMP and I have since swapped the spring from a factory High-Power. I hope to try it again on Thursday.

For those that are not privy to the events I offer the following: I had an FM HP which had Novak sights, trigger job, C&S safety, and Ahrends grips. I had it refinished and during the test firing it blew out a section of the frame where the safety is inserted. I have since had Alex Hamilton of Ten-Ring Precision, Inc. repair it by purchasing a used frame from Sarco, clean up the frame, hard chrome by Virgil Tripp,and reassembled. This pistol is now a piece of beauty.

Regards,

Richard

I've been meaning to ask you about this but never seem to get to it. Was your FM a model -95?

I've got several of each. One FEG is an exact copy. One has a different slide stop & SS notch ( in the slide). One has blockier contours to the frame & slide along with the vent rib. SS & notch are like the second one above. The FN/Browning SS will NOT work with the latter 2 slides without recutting the notches to FN/Browning spec. The FEG SS ( similar to a 1911) will work with a standard FN/Browning slide. It just leaves the stop notch exposed when in battery. Every other part I've tried works fine on either within normal fitting parameters.

jar, no, my FM wasn't a M95. It was about 6 years old and had well over 5,000 rounds through it. None of these rounds were +p or +p+. I think my gunsmith polished the frame too much prior to bluing. Other than this fluke my gunsmith has been great for years. I forgive for this mistake. Regards, Richard
