Re: brass plating?

A good rich Plumb Brown barrel is a thing of beauty. It also looks great with polished brass and either dark walnut or red or natural maple.

Re: brass plating?

All of the above things plus the fact that the best way to clean a black powder barrel is with hot water. I've had many muzzle loaders with brass fittings and any time the water from cleaning touches the brass , it is discolored. You would have to "Brasso" the barrel evertime you fired the gun. I'd ...

Re: trigger guard

I don't know ,Frank. Mine smacks hell out of the front of my second finger. After a few rounds it starts hurting but I think the answer may be finding some way to make the Rear of the grip bigger so the recoil goes to the palm of the hand instead of the web. Just my 2 cents. Mike

Re: P64 vs. Walther PPK/S

I have both also. I carry the p64 a lot more than the PPK. I like the Mak round a lot.
If I were going to buy just one I'd take the the P64 because you get a whole lot more pistol for $200 than you do for $600

Re: Double Trouble

Does it come with an IWB holster ? You would have to wear two jackets to cover up that lump. Mike

new P64

I got my little 1972 P64 right before Christmas and fired a couple of clips through it. As we all know it was ridiculous double action trigger pull and substantial recoil. I put the Wolff springs in it and was able to stretch a bike inner tube section around the grip. The inner tube really made a di...

Look out! Lurker with a gun!

Hi folks, I've been lurking around for several weeks waiting for Christmas so wifey would let me have the little box under the tree. Well yesterday she gave in and it's early Christmas. I ordered this P 64 from J&G and have been concerned since reading the negative results posted about J&G. I was pl...

Re: Mak Ammo

I'm a new guy here. Have been lurking for several weeks. I'm also waiting for Christmas to open that little box under the tree. On this thread just wanted to add that one of these ammo people, Ammoman or ammotogo (can't remember which) pays the freight on ammunition orders. Doesn't seem to be much i...
