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...

Welcome to the forum Jski.

Before ordering springs I would test fire it at the range you may like the stock spring set up.
No one likes the Hammer Spring, and you know it! Some people tolerate the Hammer Spring. There is a difference!

Re: Best place from which to buy my P-64?

Local stores Like Gander Mtn. and Bass Pro, etc have also had P-64s as well that one can examine before purchase. The P-64s have come in waves of shipment mostly through Century Arms. It seems that the most recent wave has had quality issues, so Century may be nearing the end of it's supply. You sai...

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

As far as the Recoil Spring goes; I like the 22 Lb. spring. ***Something that you need to note when putting these springs on; The Wolff replacement springs frequently don't match the factory originals. The originals are flattened at the ends, where the replacements are not. Some people don't have a ...

Re: Mystery 'chamber wear'

Next time you fire the Mosin, try pulling straight back on the safety before trying to release the bolt. It will cock the hammer and allow the bolt to open much easier. It is how the Russians were trained to cycle the gun in order to keep the sights on target between shots. What are you replying to?

Re: Can't get slide on with Wolff recoil springs

Still waiting to hear back. I did some more searching and found this thread here, with helpful pics, though again it is from 7.5 years ago. But I assume not much has changed? http://www.p64resource.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3447&p=39176&#p39176 Like Curly said, that thread is a good one to foll...

Re: Just got my P64, seems very difficult to rack slide and flip safety

As for the safety, common issue apparently. The only real way to resolve this is to smooth/polish the safety detent and make sure it's well lubed (this is a little nub that sits on the end of a spring, inside the slide, that slides in and out of a detent). But not to much mind you. Also you can sho...

Well number 12 is not real. That art is by a modern artist that goes by Cooper. So they did not check these photos for authenticity.

Re: I might be an idiot, buuuut...Hammer wont stay back

It would be hard to diagnose with this amount of information only. But start looking at how the Disconnector, Sear, and Hammer are interacting. Good luck.

Re: P64 Trigger works fine until top slide on pistol

I think it is the Disconnetor, not wanting to shave material from it, may buy a replacement and see how that goes. In single action (hammer back) it functions fine, and the safety works as it should. Sounds like a plan. That way you have another one if you take to much off. I just checked too. Disc...

Re: Safety into decocker only?

No. That would only work with modifications of parts. Frankly since the Safety is such a hard part to find, if anything goes wrong with trying to do this, well you've just rendered your P-64 inoperable. Additionally the P-64 is not entirely safe to carry on Fire (this has already been debated in a d...

Re: P64 Trigger works fine until top slide on pistol

Your problem is going to lie in how the Disconnector interacts with this new Safety. In short the Disconnector is doing what it is supposed to do at the wrong time e.g. Disconnect the Trigger Bar from action. At a normal state of rest the Safety sits above the Disconnector. If you search the forums ...

Also, do all P-64's chuck brass 20-30ft away?
yes

For the price you got this at you'll still be getting a good deal if you just go ahead and pick up a "gun smith special" that has a good safety. Choose the one with the lesser finish to be a parts gun.
