Pin it with a paper clip. There are very good How To videos on YouTube. Use your Google-fu to find them.

Re: trigger bar binding with polish iron grips

I've had the same experience with Russ replying fairly promptly early on. Of course, if his email or computer dies, or he's extremely busy YMMV. He really cares about customer satisfaction.

I am leaning toward Classic, given I've heard good things about them. But Southern Ohio Gun also seems to have a solid rep.
I would go with SOG first and Classic second. Either one is reputable, and I've had positive experiences with both.

Re: Failure to feed

Since (per the picture) you have your P64 disassembled, you should be able to depress the round in the mag while pushing the semi-chambered round out by the rim. I had the same thing happen to me routinely until I started loading only FIVE ROUNDS MAX in the mag. This fixed the problem for me, and I ...

Re: Any advice on loading the 7.62X25 for my Tokarev's

Try ammoguide.com, join (cost is nominal) and do a search. There are MANY recipes. Searching drove me nuts before I discovered the site.

Powder manufacturers' sites often have recommendations as well.

Best of luck!

Re: Tula Ammo

You might want to try Academy's house brand, Monarch, for practice. It's cheap (especially on sale) and haven't had feed or firing problems with it.

Re: General Cleaning of P64

I would not advise soaking in pain thinner or any solution for 24 hours. Really soaking at all. If you are wanting to clean and decrease, there are specific products that can do this or you could use a non-chlorinated brake fluid. I personally cannot see the need to do so unless you are trying refi...
