Re: Laser?

No. People have a hard time finding Holsters for them, not likely gonna have any easier time finding a good laser that will fit properly. Your best bet is to try generic lasers made to clip on the Trigger guard, not gonna be accurate tho as the Trigger Guard moves.

Re: Where are all the p64 parts

Well it's simple. Century Int, P.W. Arms, etc. have simply not made a deal to import them in bulk into the U.S. If we want parts we need to pressure the importers to get them. We see parts yes, but onesies and twosies of stuff, many in the U.S. look to be stripped from bad guns. We see brand new par...

Re: Police training models

but these may also become more collectible as time goes on just because they are unusual. I don't really think that is true. These "School" or "Training" P-64s have been around for a while. There are plenty of them and I have only seen them go down in price over time. As far as parts or repairs go....

Re: PPU bulged cases.

PPU has been known to do this. It happens in the lower area where the feed ramp slopes away and there is no support there... There have been post about this but not in some time. Not going to spend my lunch finding them, but you are welcome to search the forum.

Re: Latest Acquisition from Classic

Picked mine up today, very early production 1966. Got lucky and received one in 100% condition, literally perfect. Shame it wasn't marked discretely, would make a nice collector piece other wise. Going to stick this in the safe anyways, can't bring myself to use it as a night stand gun. The it's an...

Re: new p64 from classic

Looks like that deal is still $189.99, got it in my email this morning... I hate the .99 thing, why don't they just say $190? Not really fooling anyone. When you check out, you see the actual total plus shipping in your cart...

Re: Recoil

Most P64 have a razor sharp edge where the top back of the frame intersects with the grip, this is what causes injury and makes it unpleasant to shoot for lots of people. Also when you say "Most" you are not talking for the group. This is simply not true. Maybe some of the ones that you have handle...

Re: P64 Stovepipes

Try manually cycling without firing to try to tell where in the cycle they may be getting caught up. Also check your fired brass for clues as well. You'll be looking for bulges and/or drag marks in the primer.

The A-Zoom ones are the only ones I know of. They have worked great for me. Have not had any problems with them.

Re: Recoil

Yes they are fun to shoot. However in comparison to say a full framed model like the MAG-98 or Beretta 92, etc the recoil is pretty snappy. With the stock model P-64, no mods done, after some time it will start to make your thumb web sore. I don't think your experience is typically what people are t...

Re: Are rear sights on all Mak's standardized?

I meant you could always get the full civilian model p-83. Then you'd have those brighter sights with no modification needed. Otherwise you might want to have a gunsmith check your current p-83 to see what if any modification needs to be done to install an aftermarket sight. Or have you thought abou...

Re: Are rear sights on all Mak's standardized?

I don't think so. But keep in mind that there was a Civilian export model that had brighter sights and a circular hammer that you may be able to find instead.

Re: Parts most likely to break

Safety levers x10. That's really it. I personally choose to have a few extra parts like firing pin and springs. But if you can find safeties..that's the one I've heard of breaking the most. I'm afraid you have it wrong. The Safety does not break that often. However when it does, it's the one that i...

Re: Best choice of Wolff replacement springs for an P-64?

Strangely (?), my P-64 has a very manageable DA trigger pull (but certainly suboptimal). The manufacturing date is 1967. Does that have anything to do with this? Unless you've owned it since day 1, it's reasonable to assume someone *might* have already replaced the springs. + 1 on some one could ha...
