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.

Re: New owner

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...

Re: Tula Ammo

Sounds good, thx. Silver Bear would be nice but it's $3 more a box and since I live in "that" left coast state I need to stock up on as much ammo I can before Jan 1st. The Brown Bear ammo gives me the best bang for the buck (no pun intended). I've got several boxes of HCD for carry ammo so cheap pra...

Re: Finally took the P64 to the range

If you aim carefully it doesn't do too bad at 21 yrds using single action only. Tho as you said, with it's sights I can't imagine it would be practical at that distance. The double/triple taps drills are in case the DA round is a flyer and the second and third rounds are the ones that count. Gotta s...

Re: Finally took the P64 to the range

Second trip to range today with about 80 rnds thru it. Worked hard on DA/SA double and triple taps to try and get used to the different trigger pulls. Gotta say I don't like the DA pull but the SA seems light to me so I'm not going to be changing the spring. I've still got some work to do but at lea...

Re: P64 Magazines in Stock???

Tested all my mags at the range today and they all functioned flawlessly. Put about 80 rounds thru it trying to get used to the DA/SA differences.
Looked at the SOG site and the mags are still available.

Re: P64 Hard Safety Action

There's threads in the modifications section on reshaping the plunger and iirc a replacement spring that's available.
Also look at the threads on modifying the detent cut out on the decocker.

Re: Tula Ammo

2+ on the HCD ammo. Functions flawlessly and the ballistic tests are favorable.
Last I read on Red Army was it was key holing out of a P64.
What do you guys think of Brown Bear ammo for practice?

Re: What do you ask the gunsmith to do with safety that has tighen so bad my senior thumbs can't move it?

There are some threads in the mods section re: reshaping the head of the safety detent pin and the detent notch on the safety itself to make it easier to use. I bought my P64 and about a month later the safety froze up just like yours. I was afraid of breaking the tab off because I couldn't get it t...

Re: P64 , new to the forum, non import

" a few Makarov caliber cousins and this one was missing the group"

You live in a good state. Only the P64 is on Kaliforrnya's approved roster so finding any other caliber cousins for private party purchase is extremely rare.

Enjoy it and welcome
