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.

Re: Snap caps

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...

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?

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.
