I was just curious about the date cut off. Some say 1970, others say 1974.
I have a 1965 that is the old style and a 1972 that is the new style. So 1974 isn't the cutoff date.

Re: Suggestions for new P64 owners....

It made me so happy that I converted my 1972 P64 back to the original springs too! Life is good!!

Suggestions for new P64 owners....

It's been 3 years since I posted here. At that time, I was selling 4 of my C&R pistols. All but 1 sold: a 1965 P64. This pistol had problems: the safety would fall to "safe" while firing, the magazine would drop after the last round was fired, and the slide would not stay open after the last round. ...

Re: What Model Year Do You Own?

The 1972 is my favorite. The '76 has the spur hammer and I prefer the round one on the '72. They are all tack drivers! I haven't really messed with the two oldest.....

Re: Whats your favorite load for the 44 sp.?

In my new Blackhawk 44 spl, I had very good accuracy with a 200 grain lead RNFP from MasterCast over 3.8 grains of Clays. I use CCI large pistol primers. The load is mild, especially for the Blackhawk, but I do like the accuracy. I haven't chronigraphed it yet.

Re: Hello to All

Welcome, bigmac.

Yes, the P64 is a great little pistol and this is the best gun board. I carry my P64 often and SOG will ship my 4th one today or tomorrow.

You will like it here. Good folks, mighty good folks!

Re: New Member, New P-64--Ammo Advice

I've only been shooting 9x18 for a little over 2 years now. The first 9x18 pistol I bought was an FEG PA-63. I changed the recoil and hammer springs, ordered one box each of Wolf, Brown Bear, and Silver Bear (all in the 93-95gr range). The only one I had a problem with was the Wolf. I had several li...

Re: I you use a Hoque Jr Grip on your P64...

Dang! I just put the Hogue Jr grip on my newest P64. I use a US Gunleather holster. How do you carry yours? I have had problems with the grip screws rusting up on me, so I wanted to try the Hogue Jr.

Anyone else had this experience?

Re: Where to buy a P64.

JAGGUY, yours would be from the newest shipment, right?

fish, I think the ones you handled were not from the last shipment. SOG ran out about the 26th of July (?) got their hands on more pronto. That's my guesstimate. Were the ones you handled the triangular hammers?

Re: Where to buy a P64.

I have 3 P64s. The first 2 were from J & G Sales and both were beyond excellent. Of course, J & G is out of stock now. I received one from MCS Firearms this past week, and I was disappointed. The right grip was pretty well chewed up and it seemed as if the springs had already been replaced. I will k...

Re: ball or jhp

I've settled on ball for my P-64s. I do use Hornady in my Maks and Silver Bear JHP in my CZ-82. However, I believe the shorter barrel of the P-64 drops the velocity too much for reliable expansion of hollow points. I could be wrong, but I feel more confident with the FMJ round. Just my opinion.... :D

Re: Considering getting a P64 for the wife

Josh, if your wife has been using a PA-63 with no problems, she should have no problems with a P-64. The P-64 is only slightly smaller than a PA-63. I think the P-64 has slightly less recoil than the FEG. At least that is my perception. I believe the P-64 is more durable than the PA-63. Yes, I have ...
