    I have an FEG PJK9P Hi-Power clone. A while ago I field stripped it for cleaning, and now I can't get it back together. The feed ramp keeps hitting the recoil pin (if that's the right term- the crossways pin that the slot under the barrel normally engages) so that the slide won't go all the way back on the frame.

    Just to be sure I wasn't crazy I pulled out a real Browning and took it apart. As far as I can tell all the parts are identical, and it went back together with no problem- same as it's been doing for the twenty years I've owned it.

    I was half inclined to grind a little off the bottom of the feed ramp, but I reminded myself that it's been together and working so there must be a way to do it. Taking metal off the feed ramp seems like a recipe for trouble too.

    This is driving me nuts. So, any comments/suggestions?

    If it worked properly before, I would keep looking for the problem. Do you have a manual for the pistol? If it is indentical to the Browning, use the Browning manual. I would not grind on the feed ramp.

    The feed ramp is hitting the recoil pin? Do you mean the pin that holds the recoil spring in place? I can't see that hitting the feed ramp.

    Please post some pics. What your describing right now sounds impossible. I think what you are saying is the barrel is hitting the slide stop. Or maybe the magazine safety.

    Do you have the recoil spring guide the right way 'round?
