Re: How to remove polish iron grips?

Yeah he makes it look easy but I have a hard time removing them to. A lot of wiggling back and forth while pulling helps.

Re: Recoil pain. Am I holding it wrong?

First thing to do is watch his grip installation video again and make sure the grip is properly seated in the frame cut outs. Then see if the screw is long enough. If not then I'd definitely contact him with your concerns. I've been working thru the same issue with Russ on my grips. He thinks he sen...

Re: Recoil pain. Am I holding it wrong?

You'll like them. I put 100 rnds thru mine a couple of days ago and had no issues (pain, bruising, blood, etc) at all.
Only problem I had was finding the ejected cases for reloading. They do fly...

Re: Recoil pain. Am I holding it wrong?

You can try shifting your grip a bit to move the tail into the web of your hand. It will make the reach to the trigger a bit longer but it can help. You can also put a few layers of adhesive tape over the web and knuckle to cushion it a bit. I bit the bullet and purchased a PI grip and it made a wor...

Re: P64 Mags

They were a better price when SOG had them but definitely better the $35!
Glad to pass it along.

So you're not making the rubber fused extended mag releases anymore?

P64 Mags

FYI, for those that missed the last one, Classicfirearms.com has mags in stock.
Not a great price but better than the aftermarket mags.

Re: Another new owner!

Welcome! Be sure to feed it a diet of your intended SD ammo before you consider carrying it. 40-50 ( more if you can afford it ) rounds without any issues should be adequate. There's some good options for grips and grip wraps that may help with the bite. I just put a band-aid on the web of my hand a...

Re: P-64 Not Fully Chambering Rounds

What brand of ammo are you using and have you tried different brands to see if it replicates the issue on both P64's?

Re: P64 Origin Stories

I was looking for a replacement for my CCW and since I live in the (not so) great state of Kalyforrnya my choices were limited to what was on the roster of "approved" handguns. There were a few in 380, a few larger ones in 9mm and the C&R eligible P64. I liked that it was the same size as my CCW but...

Re: P64 Magazines in Stock???

Yah, that's why I was hesitant ordering until I got some input from others. All in all the shipping wasn't bad and the mags were real nice.
Besides, who knows when we'll be able to find them again for a decent price.

Re: Finally took the P64 to the range

I've been stock piling 9x19 cases for months now (I'm glad to keep the range clean). When the time comes I'll trim them for reloading the 9x18 cartridges.

Congrats and welcome. I'm a short time owner and am learning to appreciate it more and more every time I shoot it. Don't know how many mags you got with it but if you look further down the page you'll see a post about mags in stock. Pick up a few extra while they have them as they are 30 or more yea...

Re: Finally took the P64 to the range

Over coming 40+ years of muscle memory is tricky. It'll take time to learn the new triggers. I figure a couple thousand rounds for drills should do it. I know it's tough but someone needs to keep the ammo companies in business. Yah the 1911 (mines the commander model) is kinda hard to conceal tho ma...
