Re: J&G sales and Classic firearms feedback

Every example I have ever seen (either purchased by myself or by others that I know) from Classic has always been rated one to two NRA grades better than I would rate it. This is the exact opposite situation from my experience with AIM where I have received examples which we're actually in better co...

Re: P64 shooting tips

A Hogue Handall Jr (or PI) grip are both a little wider which helps spread the recoil across a wider surface lessening the "sting" in any one part of the web of the hand. A set of Wolf Spring (I did both recoil and main springs) takes the recoil away a little and deals with atrocious double-action t...

Re: Recoil pain. Am I holding it wrong?

A combination of recoil spring change, some change of grip (I have found that a Hogue Handall Jr. rubber slip-on works best for me), and a change in how you approach holding the pistol are what is necessary. Direct blowback pistols are not as forgiving of limp-wristed holds as Browning-style are. Yo...

Just ordered a 3 pack. Many thanks!
Let us know when you get them in how they work, please. I have not placed and order get, but I will order a 3-pack too, as I have 3 magazines that do not currently need new springs, but I am sure eventually will.

Wolf Springs +5% P64 Magazine Springs

I did not see this listed anywhere else here, but it appears that Wolf Springs is now making +5% replacement magazine springs for your worn P64 mags.

Re: P64 Magazines in Stock???

Received mine today. Both had numbers etched on them and one had a broken floor plate. I called Lisa at SOG and they are sending out another floor plate today. Very happy with the customer service! One mag is pre-72 and one is post-72 and both are in very good condition. I have always had good cust...

Re: J&G sales and Classic firearms feedback

With my C&R, I recently got a "Very Good" condition CZ-82 from Classic Firearms. I was prepared (based on what I had read online) for their NRA "grading" of their products to be higher than what I was used to from AIM or SOG (whom I have had VERY good experiences with!) The weapon would definitely h...

Re: P64 Magazines in Stock???

I got mine today in the USPS. It is a surplus post-72 ("new") magazine with one set of electro-pencil serial numbers (the hand-picked 1970 model P64 I got from AIM Surplus in 2015 came with one each pre-/post-72 magazines which both had multiple serial numbers), and a spring that is much tighter (an...

Re: P64 Magazines in Stock???

Sorry, been super busy. Got a confirmation while I was out of town (with no connectivity) on Monday from SOG: $16.43 + $7.15 S&H via USPS for a single magazine for a total of $23.58. A fair price for a surplus out-of-production magazine (I paid more for a surplus CZ-82 magazine from MidwayUSA recent...

P64 Magazines in Stock???

SOG appears to have P64 magazines in stock. I placed an order for an extra after 1700 EST online today (a Friday) and did not get a confirmation. If I do not hear something by Monday when they open, I will call.

Re: PI/ new Kydex holsters

You are definitely peaking my interest, Russ.

Since I need to order a set of V.05 grips from you anyway, I might just have to order both those and a holster. :-)

Re: PI/ new Kydex holsters

Interesting. I see in the photos that you wear the OWB waistband in the 3 o'clock position. How does it ride in the 5 o'clock position for those of us that prefer to carry there?

Re: Experience with these Holsters

I have worn the Suncraft holster for years. Stays close to the body (after break-in). I wear it at 5 o'clock and have never had an issue. For IWB carry, I use Grandfather Oak kydex. Great clamshell retention holster. I own several for different pistols. Thanks, IrishBob! I ended up with the Blackha...
