Re: Recoil

Thank you for the backup Weasel. And one question usagi, how can the trigger bar bind on the Polish Iron grips "with zero pressure on the grip"? Please tell me how to pull the trigger without holding the gun by the grip?

Re: Safety Tempering

I would think knowledge of the metallurgy of the part would be required before a proper heat treatment could be done.

Re: Recoil

The number of people who have issues with the Polish Iron grips is very small compared to the number of people who own them.

Re: P64 Stovepipes

Changing out the hammer spring for lighter ones has made the SA trigger too light for many here. I am running the 17lb spring and I found that while it did lighten up the SA a bit I can work with it but many can't. So if you go to the 18lb do not throw the 20lb away. Try it out for a bit and see wha...

Re: P64 Stovepipes

Not a bad line of reasoning. Where did you get the Star BM recoil spring? I have 2 and love them but I am thinking the recoil springs should get replaced soon.

Re: P64 Stovepipes

Ok, I just reread all your posts about this problem. Did this gun come to you with the different power recoil springs? Because I suspect that the standard power spring, ie original oem spring, may have become too weak to funtion correctly. However, I am happy that you seem to have corrected the prob...

Re: Magazines for new owners

Depending on where you call home finding ammo may or may not be problematical. Let us know if the hammer spring swap helps.

Re: P64 Stovepipes

Sorry did not mean anything by that question but we have had others here that did not know for whatever reason. At this time I am out of ideas, sorry.

Re: P64 Stovepipes

Is the recoil spring on the barrel correctly? The narrow end needs to be on the breach end of the barrel. I am thinking that if it is reversed that maybe the slide is not retracting as far as possible thereby causing the weak ejection and stovepipe issue. Maybe?

I set it on a concrete block in the basement of the temporary abode with the back against the steel support collum the centerline house supports were resting on and then wrapped a 3/4 inch ...

Re: P64 Stovepipes

Is the extractor hook broken? This gun being a straight blowback action will fully cycle without an extractor but fully positive extraction of the case so it always clears the ejection port is not 100% without the help of the extraxtor hook pulling the case back hard against the ejector. Check the e...

I bet modding it so the cut is deeper would work. How are you with tools? :mrgreen:
