Re: Ouch

The Polish Iron grips will help a lot. If you change the grip, get his extended magazine release too.

That's my concern as well; which is why I'll be obiviating the 9mm Luger head stamp or at least mark it permanently somehow to note a difference.

Re: Loading the 9x18mm w/ Luger brass

Without looking too far, you can find range 9mm Luger brass for $0.02 - $0.04 each; which quite a bit cheaper.

Re: Makarov brass

Trimming 9mm Luger is probably cheapest route. On a different forum we talked about ways to mark the brass so it would be unique; which ranged from obliterating the head stamp to marking with a sharpie. I have a friend that is a jeweler, who said he would make a steel stamp for me that I could stamp...

Re: Need help with a safety stuck in the safe position

If your gun was fairly new (not used and in storage), it could be just gunked up in the safety and firing pin area. When I first read your post, I was wondering as my safety and firing pin were somewhat gunked up, so I removed them and cleaned everything up to free up the safety. There is a small sp...

Re: P64 & Friends

When I first read the post, I thought you were looking for another P64, and made the response. Then later, looked at the thread again, and added the last sentence.

Re: P64 & Friends

Here is one for $249, if you figure the second mag in the mix, it isn't too bad of a deal.

But then again, maybe you weren't looking for another P64.

Re: Slide stuck! Help!

I might try tapping it with a plastic hammer, but nothing steel. Even a block of wood but nothing hard. What you are trying to do is unstick not wedge it more. If you tap it one direction and it doesn't free it's self, try a different direction. If you hit it hard, you run the risk of springing the ...
