Re: Please Help -- 1 oz SA trigger pull

I would buy the parts you can get as soon as you can, they tend to dissapear quickly. I personally would go for the new part because of the scarcity of them.

Re: Please Help -- 1 oz SA trigger pull

Numrich currently has P-64 parts in stock and has a hammer in stock listed at $35.00
Numrich has quite a few different spare parts.

Re: Hammer binding caused Polish Iron grips?

There is a chance. Try pulling off the grips, putting a VERY SMALL amount of grease on the trigger bar, put the grips back on and try running the trigger once or twice, then pulling off the grips and checking the inside to see if any grease got transferred to the grips which would indicate contact b...

Re: Please Help -- 1 oz SA trigger pull

The P64 is an extremely well made sidearm, better than a large number of currently produced weapons, however, how the hammer / trigger bar / sear design got approved is questionable due to the light SA pull, one wonders why a redesign was not done. And it is a bit odd that there seems to be such a d...

Re: Please Help -- 1 oz SA trigger pull

Hmmm. Well my occurance was 12-13 years ago so maybe they changed policy sometime after my issue. And since they are now kaput it no longer matters. :D

Re: Please Help -- 1 oz SA trigger pull

I still think the issue is the hammer. Check the sear engagement notches and see if they are damamged or if the edges are nice and square and sharp. Also check the trigger return spring and see if it is working properly. Otherwise, find a smith who can diagnose a possible problem. The other problem ...

Re: Please Help -- 1 oz SA trigger pull

The P64 does not take special knowledge. If your gunsmith is good he will be able to find information he needs if he cannot find what is wrong. Otherwise take it to a different 'smith. And Curly did the guy behind the counter know you personally 'cause I was told that company policy forbade them fro...

Re: Please Help -- 1 oz SA trigger pull

ok, if you let someone dry fire the gun before selling it, take snap caps with you, and THEY deem it acceptable then you are not selling them a gun with a feature they are unaware of. And I will NOT buy a sidearm that I cannot test the trigger on. Gander Mountain was a major retailer that had lost m...

Re: STAR BM 9mm

Hey guys, recently got hold of some Peach wood that looked pretty nice so I decided to see how grips for my Star BM would look. And here they are. Unfortunately the wood was not quite dry enough yet and I am fighting some warping and a small crack but I like the way they look. Papabear if your out t...

Re: Astra A75

Ok, was trolling my old posts and realized I had never posted pics of my new / old Astra A75. Well, here it is. I just finished making the grips for it, they are Cherry wood with a custom blended stain. I love the way this gun carry's and shoots. if you get the chance to own one, do not hesitate, yo...
