Re: Which Remora for P83?

I guess that's just model #12D? Apparently that one's fitted for the Para Ord. 1911? I'll try it. They're having a 40% off sitewide sale at the moment, with one free mag holder and sweatshield upgrades, so even if it's not the right size I can resell it all to someone and not be out by too much.

Which Remora for P83?

I keep seeing recommendations for this brand of IWB for the Wanad, but there's no listing for the P83 in any of the dropdown menus when choosing a pistol fit. There's plain Mak, and P64, but no P83 specifically.

Which Remora IWB holster is best for it?

Question for preppers: FD Powder to fresh produce ratio?

Does anyone know how many whole bananas are in a 5 cup bag of freeze-dried banana powder? Fresh bananas from Food Lion are around $1 a pound, give or take 10c. A 5-cup bag of powder from NBT is just under $30, not counting S+H. Am I saving any money by getting the bag of FD powder? Or am I better of...

Re: "Tear down this wall!"

They may have sold out of the Hand Select guns. They separate them from the rest of the bunch as soon as they get a shipment in, not when someone orders with Hand Select marked. If you don't see HS on that gun's page, they're out of the higher grade.

Re: My grips are screwed. (CZ999 Compact)

That's what I'm saying. Numrich has loads of original screws for it, so that's not a problem. I just wanted to know if there was a way to make screws fit that weren't made to fit. Sounds like that'll be more trouble than its worth, so I'll just get more of the originals, and look at finding a flathe...

Re: My grips are screwed. (CZ999 Compact)

It's as accurate as you could want from something that looks like a Sig. Frame is a light alloy, so all the weight's in the slide. Barrel is chromelined, so go nuts with all the steel and cheap dirty ammo you can lay your hands on. The slide-to-frame fit is loose enough to make literally hosing it o...

Re: My grips are screwed. (CZ999 Compact)

CAI was the first place I went to, they said they don't provide parts for this pistol, but pointed me towards Numrich. I'll look at Home Depot.

Well I've done that, and like I said Numrich is the only place I know of.

Oh, they sell to individual consumers? And overseas?

My grips are screwed. (CZ999 Compact)

I've got a Zastava CZ999 Compact. You've read the title, you probably knew that by now. The CZ999 Compact has grips, as most pistols do, and these grips are held down with screws. Screws for a flathead screwdriver. Screws with really shallow heads. I've stripped the one to hell and back, and I'm sti...

Re: Increased magazine capacity

Maybe, but I can't tell what year(s) mine came from. Except the one from KeepShooting. That one may be post-'72, but I'm not pushing it any harder than I have to. It hasn't malfunctioned yet and I'm not testing my luck.

How big is the dovetail on P-83?

https://www.xssights.com/Products.aspx?CAT=8222

XS Sights has this Big Dot set for the Bulgarian Mak's dovetail, will it fit the Wanad? Can't imagine they had a standardized size for sights, even though all the factories were gov't owned.

Modding regular mak mags for P83 use

Is it possible? I've seen vids of people demonstrating that you can fit a mak mag into a Wanad, but it's not tall enough to ride.

Re: "Tear down this wall!"

That decocker bugs me. The hammer falls well before I've pushed the lever all the way up. Anyone ever had an issue with it going off while fondling their decock?
