Question FEG FP9 Mark II clone (trigger lever) help!

Gentlemen and Ladies (if present!):

I am no smith, although I would like to grow up to be one someday (I'm 53, hopefully there's time!)

I have 2 of these pistols, one is a KBI import with PJK-9HP as the model number, but mine has the "ventilated rib", and the other has no model number and no import markings and the rib.

Ok, here's how the story goes.

I bought the used pistol and it was in 90%+ condition and internally it looked like it had been fired with the cosmoline in it. I detail stripped the pistol and cleaned it out thoroughly. When putting it back together I only have one problem, the trigger lever does not line up in the groove in the frame consistently. It LOOKS like it is in the right place, with the rounded base in the rounded groove in the trigger assembly and the trigger spring is riding in the groove in the trigger lever.

When removing the trigger pin, and beginning to rotate the trigger group out, the trigger lever "falls off".

I had massive problems trying to put the lever back in, until I realized that the mag safety had to be depressed (by putting the mag partially in). I used a sturdy dental pick to raise the trigger spring and rather awkwardly managed to insert the lever under the spring.

There HAS to be a better way that actually works. Please share! Any photographs, diagrams, videos, or other visual aids would help.

Thank you folks for taking the time to read this and/or respond, as I am humbled by the quality of the advice I've read in these forums.

With best regards,

Ray

Hello,

Install the trigger into the frame, and hold the trigger body all the way to the rear and up as high in the frame as possible. Now install the lever by simply slipping it under the tail-end of the spring and into it's pocket in the trigger body, now put the trigger into it's place making sure the lever is in the slot on the R.H. side of the frame and now install the trigger pin from Left and drive it towards the Right.

Now, I have a new issue! I've seated the trigger lever correctly, thank you Mr. Bob Reed! I now discover that there is no sear lever spring present. Numrich is out of the FEG ones, but I wonder if the Browning/FN part will substitute. Anyone out there have this experience?

Thank you in advance!

Ray

Hello,

The only High Powers that have a spring under the sear lever that I'm aware of are The FN-Browning's that's equipped with the un-needed firing pin block, ie. late model MK2s and all MK3s (excluding the one's that were specially ordered with out it).

Thank you again. I've been offline for quite a bit. You were correct.

I have an FEG that I bought at a gun show and was very rough. I sent it to Cylinder and Slide back in the day for improvements. They told me it was the roughest clone they had ever seen, but they worked miracles on it.

I would either send it to them or, a Bullseye pistolsmith. However, you will never sell it for what you put into it.
