Re: Recoil pain. Am I holding it wrong?

For me I found wedging a small screwdriver between the frame and grip on both sides of the mag well releases the grip from the frame cut out and it comes off pretty easy.

Re: trigger bar binding with polish iron grips

I can't find and edit my response I made a few minutes ago but I did find this in the installation instructions: "The grip is flexible. And under normal use. And even a very hard grip. The grip will not disturb the trigger bar. However you can disturb the trigger bar by pressing directly on that are...

Re: trigger bar binding with polish iron grips

Yup, contact him. He was very helpful fguring out why my grip screw wasn't long enough (which it turned out it was a short one).
IIRC, doesn't the installation instructions say if the grip screw is tightened too much it will cause the trigger bar to bind?

Re: P64 Newb, assumptions and input requested from the collective p-64 brain.

Does it look like it was soaked in cosmoline during storage or is it pretty clean? If pretty clean (like mine was) then what you're doing is pretty good with the addition of oiling the wear parts. You don't need to strip it down to do this, just apply oil to any friction areas. If covered in cosmoli...

Re: P64 shooting tips

At the least try a Hogue wrap around grip. It helps with your grip but won't help the web of your hand.
I got the PI grip for mine and it made a world of difference.

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.

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...
