WTB: FEG P9M extended thumb safety

Yep title pretty much sums it up. Let me know if you've got one you would be willing to part with.

Thanks,
Chris

Good luck. It would be easier to buy a feg pistol with that style thumb safety and swap it for what you don't want. There are none that I know of - numrich sold out early last year.

Yeah, I know they are pretty scarce these days. I've checked out the Numrich site, but who knows if they'll ever get any back in. I just KNOW somebody out there bought 5 when they were available and are just sitting on them in case they happen to buy another BHP somewhere down the road. That's why I'm looking for one, I would like to put it on a FN Hi Power.

I really don't want to buy a $200 extended thumb safety and have a leftover frame, slide, grips, barrel, and internals.

Whoa!! Big Red Flag, Wyoplinker!! I hate to bear bad news, but one of the few real parts differences between the FEG single action BHP clones and the FNHP or BHP P-35 pistols lies in the safety and its left side frame hole.

The BHP safety is just a smidge too large for the left side frame hole in the FEG single action autos. So then, a safety made for the smaller FEG hole will have a discernable amount of play in it when installed in the larger left side frame hole of the Browning/FN Hi Power pistols. This play is very likely to affect the way the sear engages the hammer hooks or the way the safety lever operates and could be a very unsafe thing to do.

I would urge some careful study and caution before trying to install a FEG safety into your FN pistol. If it was me and I was looking for a left side extended safety for an FN or Browning P-35 Hi Power I would go for the Cylinder and Slide extended safety or the factory left side extended safety from the parts department at Browning instead of the FEG extended safety.

Be careful here, Sir. There are some real safety implications in what you are intending to do.

Why not just order the mark III single side safety, install, mark the post, cut and round it off. That is what I did. Works great. I did install a stronger spring for the plunger which gives that "click" found on a 1911. Nelson

Well, it's not really that big of a red flag, seeing as I'll probably never be able to get a hold of one. That is good information that I was not aware of though, so thanks for that. I thought it was pretty much a straight swap. I kind of figured that's why Numrich was out of them, a bunch of BHP lovers bought them up. Rest assured, if I do ever find one, I'll make darn sure everything matches up nice and the sear is secure and safe.

Thanks again,
Chris

P.S. I'd still like to give it a try if anybody has an extra one of these laying around.

drnls - I don't really like the MarkIII safety. Not a fan of its profile. Of the extended safeties that I've seen and liked, they are all from the custom gunmakers and they only put them on their project guns. The cylinder and slide extended safety doesn't really do much for me either. I am kind of thinking now that I might send it to Novaks for some sights and some other work. If I do that, I'll have them put one of their extended thumb safeties on it, it looks pretty nice.

[QUOTE=wyoplinker;100764]................I kind of figured that's why Numrich was out of them, a bunch of BHP lovers bought them up....................

No sir, they dried up because all of the guys (like me) who had the earlier FEG's with the itty bitty safeties made a run on them as soon as KBI sold all their FEG parts to Numrich, and they evaporated almost overnight. The FEG extended safeties are generally conceded to be the nicest looking of the extended Hi Power style safeties around, so I can really understand your interest in them. You might keep an eye on the gun parts section of Guns for Sale - Online Gun Auction - Buy Guns at GunBroker.com. One may turn up over there sometime. Also, look through the photo sections of the various Hi Power forums on different websites and keep an eye out for any single action FEG's that have had the C&S ambi safety installed in it. The owner, usually a left hander, may be sitting on the FEG extended safety you want. I found one that way. Best wishes.

I Have a P9M and a PJK-9HP they look similar on the outside but internally the barrels and ths slides are very different. Not interchangeable at all. The PJK-9Hp will work with the Browning HP but the P9M will not. Just sayin!
