Re: New guy from PA

Successful range trip. The new 22# recoil spring and Polish Iron grip help tame the recoil quite a bit but it's still a handful. The 17# hammer spring works well with no light strikes though DA is still a chore; polishing would help. The non-matching number magazine is allowing some FTFs but the oth...

New member, first post. My major interest is in .32ACP pistols, but I was also bitten by the Makarov bug. I have several, am wrangling to buy a Soviet one, and recently bought my first P-64, from SOG. I already invested in a Polish Iron replacement grip, and this afternoon ordered recoil and hammer ...
