Re: Any of you all having a problem with 8 Rounds in the P.8

I was using the Privi Paratisan Ball Rounds, and the Wolf with a Conical shaped Bullit, sort of like WW2 German Luger Ammo. The Wolf did better. Both Mags. do this I guess its tight Mag. Spring's or the Pistol is finicky about what Ammo it uses. As I had the Pistol checked out, it may be what I said...

Re: Polish Army having Problems with new WIST-94 Pistol.

Having only fired a P.64 once, it was a Friends, I can say the P.83 is like the Makarov, does not hurt my hand like a Walther PPK, a lot of these small Pistol's with large Calibers that dont have a Back Strap on the Frame can kick recoil wise. by far better than the P.64 and basicly the same a Makar...

Re: Polish Army having Problems with new WIST-94 Pistol.

The P.83 is the best looking of all Makarov Caliber Pistols sort of like a Glock in the Front and Mauser HSC with P.38 Style Grip's. Fired my 1989 P.83 yesterday, it performed flawless, except for tight Magazine Spring.

Re: Anyone know how the Serial Numbering went for P.83 Pisto

Iam just guessing here, but If they used the double letter system like the Russians which they look like they have, either the numbers repeated themselves during the year, or they maybe had a system from AB to YZ not sure how high the numbers went, I recall the WW1 Lugers at DWM went from 0001a to 9...
