Re: "Chambered Round" indicator question on reassembly

Thank you Weasel640. Pretty good stuff. 8) Although the 2nd pic says "Make sure the cartridge indicator is facing the right way", it doesn't clearly say or show which is the right way. But, in looking at some other cutaway views and exploded views, it is easy now to see the correct position. Plus, t...

Trigger pin locks up my slide

Please see pic. When reassembling, the pin shown had slid out a bit to the left. Hung up my slide real good, thought I might have a gunsmith bill in my future. I manhandled the slide off, and was able to rotate this pin to fully seat it. Kinda mad about scratching it in the process. Anyway, it seems...

"Chambered Round" indicator question on reassembly

Disassembled to install Wolff springs, incl Firing Pin spring since it came with my spring kit. Followed the YouTube video, which didn't mention the "chambered round" indicator. You guessed it, I turned the slide over and the little retainer for the indicator/spring tumbled out. And the indicator sl...

Re: Anyone Ride a Motorcycle?

Have had a few. Got creamed by a tow truck which broke my Honda CB750F Super Sport in half! Currently 3x Kawasaki. ZR-7S street. KLR 250 Enduro. KE 100 Enduro, cool street legal oil-injected 2-stroke. I believe it was the last street legal two-stroke sold in the US. Previously '73 CB500K 4-cyl, '85 ...

Re: First GunBroker Purchase - How to pay Polish seller?

Thanks, Curly1. I went back and looked at the listing, yes it does show that he accepts PayPal. I have heard that PayPal can be very opinionated regarding the use of their services to buy and sell firearms. Hopefully I won't get crosswise with them for buying a holster and a cleaning rod. Thanks aga...

Re: Serialization

My question as well. Yes, I know the weapon is date stamped, but curious as to any rhyme or reason to serial numbers and letters.

Re: What magazine did I buy?

The answer is in your original post.
.380 is 9x17 (or 9 mm Short or 9 mm Corto or 9 mm Kurz, etc., which just means 9 mm short in Italian/Spanish and German.).
P64 uses 9x18 Makarov Ammo. Different, not interchangeable.

First GunBroker Purchase - How to pay Polish seller?

Hello Forum, Just bought P64 accessories from Seller in Poland on GunBroker site. Never bought on GB before. Any tips on paying internationally are appreciated. Do I mail him a USPS Money Order, and hope he sends my gear? I don't want to give him credit card info. PayPal should be OK for just a Hols...

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

Hi Team, New to forum and P64. Bought one in store, pick up date is 1/17. I just picked a cool s/n from their warehouse list, ends in 00700. I liked it and it contains 007, so can't go wrong there! Turned out to be a 1976. Likely to get Wolf springs and the nice rubber grips I've seen here. I did or...
