Re: Unissued / Never Used P64 ?

I'd say it sounds like you have already found one. These were made for the military and police. Not for commercial sale. Unfortunately they don't come with records about each P_64s history.

Re: Unissued / Never Used P64 ?

These are Surplus pistols. They had belonged to Poland for some time, and sold in huge lots to commercial vendors with no records. So no, no one can say for sure that a P-64 has not been used or issued. However most vendors will inspect them by the lot and give them a grade, i.e. Very Good, Excellen...

Re: Help... My Slide Won't Come Off!

Yeah not their problem... People come here and find the fix, and do it themselves. But it has been an on going thing and has not seemed to have been fixed at all.

Re: P-64 and Its Trigger Bar?

Just wondering, what are the differences between the P64 and the PPK :?: I like them both. :) They both go bank, right :?: :wink: The biggest difference internally is how the Sear and Hammer function. The PPK has an extra piece that is a quarter circle shape that interacts with the Trigger Bar, Sea...

Re: How to remove polish iron grips?

Are you marking sure that the internal geometry releases first? In the video below at 14:31 you can see that he is pushing the sides out at the same time he is squeezing so that the internal geometry does not re-attach inside. If you think it's not releasing maybe try to get your pinky in the well a...

Re: Is concealed carry safe with one in chamber and safety on shoot?

That was good Curly. I found this by watching that. This one has some really good info. https://youtu.be/2fjMpn7JCJ0 Yes I saw that one too. It does bring up some interesting points. I think the most important would be that you must get distance in some way. Not all people have the same agility so ...

Re: Help... My Slide Won't Come Off!

Just have to ask. After time and firing of the firearm. Would the slide spring perhaps loose just enough tension to allow easier removal of the slide :?: Or, is it just wishful thinking ? :? And their just is to much material in the Wolff springs ? It seems to be the latter. To much material. They ...

Re: Help... My Slide Won't Come Off!

I just installed Wolff recoil springs in two newly purchased P64's. :D Its easier getting a divorce than putting the darn slide back on. :shock: After numerous attempts with both firearms, I finally did get the slide back on. Was thinking what the hell is this Pollack doing wrong :?: Was also think...

KETCHMAN .......... read my posting again and the following is what I stated :!: As I stated, this is my personal thought on the subject of carrying with one round chambered. I will seek cover first before I engage in a shooting. :arrow: But then again, one can not be prepared for all scenarios . F...

Re: Recoil pain. Am I holding it wrong?

I just got my Polish Iron grips on. They feel good, so does the extended mag release. But there is one problem. My grip screw is too short for them. :( I know they won't come off, but there is something in my mind that just can't accept having an empty hole there. Anywhere I can get a longer grip s...

I can certainly see the value in compression to insert be pin fully. Unfortunately I can't seem to push it past the initial hole in the frame.

I met the same resistance without or without the trigger guard in place.
Was the Trigger Guard Plunger still in the Frame both times?

Re: Trigger Hinge Pin Replacement

I'm not sure why my previous reply did not post. Tape won't cut it. Easiest way is with a vise. Here are just a couple of the many references to the vise working: http://www.p64resource.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4702&p=45097&hilit=trigger+guard#p45097 http://www.p64resource.com/forum/viewtopic.p...

Re: Trigger guard pin

Picture on the original post would be great. Another concern is that since it is not the original, you will have to watch that it does not ride out with use. In most cases people have difficulty putting the Trigger Guard Pin in place. If it was at all easy to install then it could easily ride out wi...

potatoe, tomatoe. This started about someone saying the P64 hurt him when he shot it. Can you get back to the main focus if this post. Exactly, but not tide pods... The main focus has been answered. In short: Changing the springs help (but he has already done that), changing the grips and/or adding...

Re: Recoil pain. Am I holding it wrong?

If you honestly think that these two pistols meet the above criteria for the definition of "similar" then we disagree on more than just a single word. I feel that our knowledge base of firearms is so different that we will not agree. Since the properties of the two guns are not in dispute, your kno...
