Re: Walther P1 with feeding problems

"Eight warning shots followed by a well-aimed throw." Hahaha!

I read more good than bad when researching, so I'm not ready to give up on it just yet.

Walther P1 with feeding problems

I just picked up a Walther P1 from SOG. It is a 1963 Bundeswehr surplus without the hex pin or fat slide, and although it looks like it's been around the block a bit, it is in good functional condition. I fired it for the first time today with Winchester 115 grain FMJ ammo, which most P1/P38 shooter...

Re: Radom Factory Parts Available!

I'm new to the P64, but I learned that a post 1972 pistol will work with any mag. A pre-1972 might have problems with later mags.

The later mags have slightly longer feed lips, which can be ground/filed back to match the older mags. I did this with a late mag, and it seems to work fine in my 1969.

Just ordered an SKS

I have been wanting a C&R SKS for some time, and Classic has a sale going. I couldn't resist and put in an order.

Who else has one from Classic? How are they?

I sure wish I'd gotten one 20 years ago when they were $90 bucks and came with several undated rounds.

Re: NEED HELP! First Time to the range, Not good

What year is your gun? I'm new too, but I learned a bit reading here while waiting for my P64 to arrive. My gun is a 1969. It had one serial # matched mag (old style) and one other that turned out to be new style. The new style mags have longer feed lips, when compared to the old style. Compare them...

Re: NEED HELP! First Time to the range, Not good

Are you maybe using post-1972 mags in a pre-1972 pistol?

Re: Another new P64 owner

Okay, so I did a bit of reading about new vs. old magazines and I carefully ground and filed the feed lips on my new-style mag so that it matched the old-style one, more or less. My ammo came, a couple of boxes of Silver Bear FMJ, so I tried it out for the first time. 8) Both magazines worked withou...

Another new P64 owner

Hi all, I just finally broke in my C&R and got a 1969 P64 a couple of days ago from Classic. I have not even fired it yet (my ammo order is scheduled to arrive today, so I'll update). Although listed as G/VG, I'd call the gun VG/E. There is just a bit of holster wear on the muzzle, and it looks to h...
