I have a T94 pistol which was purchased missing it's safety lever. Having finally found a replacement, is it necessary to disassemble the pistol to replace the safety or can it be done with the slide in a retracted position or...?
Thanks for any help or assistance.

JB,
It might be possible, however I have always disassembled the gun to do it. Try this according to the NRA,"The safety catch blocks only the sear. To remove the safety catch, remove the left grip, lift the catch out of engagement with the frame, and swing it down. The safety catch can then be lifted out". I have never tried this, so I can't swear it will work.

JB,

The T94 is a lot easier than the T14 to take apart. If I remember correctly, draw the slide back, lock in place and depress the firing pin. This will allow the bolt retaining pin to be pushed out the side. (You may need to tap it gently with a brass punch. It only goes out one way) Now hold the slide in place and remove the bolt. Remove the mag and the slide should come off.

A great book to have in your collection is:

The Gun Digest Book of Firearms Assembly/Disassembly: Automatic Pistols (Gun Digest Book of Firearms Assembly/Disassembly) by J.B. Wood.

The book is available on Amazon

JB, Mark,
I still think you need three hands to disassemble the T-94. After the bolt is locked back, you have to stick your finger up under the rear of the slide and push the firing pin to the rear so that it is out of the notch in the bolt retaining pin/bar. Sometimes when that bar is removed everything goes to hell and springs apart!. Give me a type 14 any day!! With the T-14, if you are replacing recoil springs gotton from Numerich, you have a problem. The ends of their springs are not turned flat, so that when you are installing them, they move around and jam up the bolt replacement!!

Dave,

I agree with you 100%, the T94 is a bad design overall! ... and be sure to clear the runway for flying parts!

That whole thing about pressing in the mag release lever and pulling off the trigger guard is a bit confusing on the T-14 and I usually need to refer back to the book when I field strip one.
Not to mention the gentle touch when removing the grips!

Give me a P.38 over a Nambu to field strip anyday!

Thanks Mark and Dave -- I appreciate your thoughts. Will try it this weekend after I've had a couple of stiff drinks. I figure that will ease the pain of seeing parts and springs flying in all directions while thinking: " See, dang it, I told you not to take it apart!" Sigh....

JB,

It is also an opportunity to examine the gun to see if it is all matching. Like a Luger almost all of the small parts will be numbered to the gun.

I once bought a T94 with two matched mags that had the bolt retaining pin mismatched! It hurt me to send it back to the dealer but mismatched is mismatched!
