Hey guys, I'm newbie here with a question about a C93 I just picked up. I noticed the safety selector is prone to getting jammed in the safe position. This is the case when charging and then putting the safety on, without charging, and even when I completely remove the lower and try to disassemble the gun. I replaced the safety lever and noticed it helps a little bit it still happens. Is there possibly something out of spec or is this a common issue? I'm debating trying a new low or maybe a new trigger assembly.

Metal trigger housing or plastic? Is it just stiff, or are you saying charging the rifle makes it worse? If you've noticed some improvement after replacing the safety lever, you may just need to tweak the lever you have a little.

Thanks for the response. It's a plastic trigger housing and plastic safety lever. Charging definitely makes it worse. Its to the point that I need a punch and hammer to free it up and thats once I've disassembled the rifle

Can I suggest you kill two birds with one stone, and send the trigger pack off for a trigger job. There are several vendors. I used Bill Springfield.

The particular problem is not one I have encountered with HK-type rifles.

^This is good advice, sounds like some sort of trigger pack issue, but you should give one of the smiths in the vendors section a call and discuss the issue with them if you can, if its a shelf height issue a new trigger pack might have the same problems.

I had a problem like this once. The trigger pack in the plastic housing was very difficult to move the lever. But I had several lowers laying around. My solution was simple. I swapped the trigger packs around into the other trigger housings, & all was perfect. i don't know what was wrong, but by swapping the trigger packs into the other lower housings cured the problem. The difficult trigger pack which had the problem in the plastic housing was perfect in the metal housing. And the trigger pack that was in the metal housing worked perfectly in the plastic housing. GARY
