Re: Underwood ammo, Hornady ammo

Depending on what states you are traveling in you may not be able to posses a handgun, check each states laws for reciprocity of CCW permits. I don't think any state bars you from transporting it in a locked container while unloaded (lame, I know). Also, there is a federal statute that protects you...

Re: Underwood ammo, Hornady ammo

On the legal issues it all depends where you live and how anti-gun your state or locality is. If you live in an anti-gun state they will screw you any way and every way they can if you dare to use a gun to save your own life from some dirtbag recidivist. I live in Washington stare and It's a shall i...

Underwood ammo, Hornady ammo

I never thought I'd use a DA/SA gun as a carry gun but until Glock makes a truly compact single stack 9mm or keltec makes a pf9 with a reliable extractor, I'll carry my 1975 P-64 or a pre-1980 S&W airweight snubby. The ammo I carry in the p-64 is the Hornady 90 grain critical defense and Underwood 1...

Re: Converting 9x18 to .380, worth it?

The 9x18 is, in my opinion a better cartridge or at the very least equal to the .380. So the question to me wouild be "What would be the point? I just recently bought a set of 9x18 dies that came with a box of 95 grain berrys 9mm mak .366 plated bullets. Unique powder should work very well and I pla...

Re: New member, P64 1975

Mine is also a 1975 and I like it a lot. Shot it again today and I was able to see the sights better than the first time I tried shooting it. I focused on the front sight first, and then brought up the rear sight and centered it on the front. I'm 67 and this gun's sights were made for 18 year old mi...

Re: Ordered a P-64 from AIM Surplus

Denny is right there are no alloy framed P-64, they are all steel NORM" Yes. I was mistaken on that. As far as firing .380's in it, I don't think it will hurt it, but I doubt that the accuracy will be any good and so far I can't find any 380 ammo that's any cheaper than 9mm Mak but I think Cabela's...

Re: Slide flying off during shooting, magazine dropping

Thanks for the quick reply, I got in contact with the seller to see if there is anything they can do If not, is this something I can fix on my own or did I just buy an expensive paper weight? Best, Kevin Assuming that what you've already done to this gun was done on your own, you may have caused or...

Re: Ordered a P-64 from AIM Surplus

Here are the pictures. they were taken outdoors on the hood of my jeep with a cheap camera and don't really do justice to how cherry this gun is. The spare mag in the picture is the one that does not match the serial number of the gun. I fired Silver bear FMJ ammo, Hornady critical defense Ammo, and...

Re: Ordered a P-64 from AIM Surplus

I picked up the gun from my local FFL holder yesterday. They are two friends of mine who own a company that refinishes firearms and both guys are Xlnt gunsmiths. I ordered springs from Wolff including a new factory weight recoil spring and those were installed and I for the hammer spring I ordered t...

Re: CZ52 or Tokarev (TT-33, Type 54, M57, etc)?

I've never handled a vz.52 or a TT-33, but do have one of the newly-made Zastava M57s. It's a great gun now that I managed to get the sights squared away. That's a good choice. I love the TT-33 but I hate the fact that the ATF requires them to have an add-on safety. almost everyone of these add-on ...

Ordered a P-64 from AIM Surplus

I ordered a P-64 from AIM and I paid $10 dollars for special select, and it comes with 2 mags. I'm hoping for one made in either 1966, because that was the year I graduated from High school, or 1969, which was the year I got drafted into the military. Both were monumental years in my life. I've hear...
