Re: P 64 vs P 83

I have had several P64s & 2 P83s. I much prefer the P83 over the P64. P83 is larger, Makarov size. I use a Falco open top Makarov holster & mag pouch & they are a perfect fit. P83 has a better trigger, smooth double action/single action. Mag holds more rounds. Accurate & reliable. The only thing abo...

Re: UMAREX Makarov CO2 pistol range report

The Umarex Mak is a neat pistol. Got mine from SG also. Made in Taiwan. I was very surprised at the quality.

Re: Seecamp LWS .32

Modeled after the CZ model 1945 a great design ahead of it's time. Give us a range report. You are correct. I was ignorant of that until I got the pistol & started perusing the Seecamp forum. When I got the pistol it came with an old 50 round box of "Winchester Western" 60 gr Silvertips. I shot tho...

Re: Seecamp LWS .32

Neat little gun! Matt Del Fatti makes the best pocket holster money can buy for those little guys. www.delfatti.com/ Thanks! I have seen some pretty neat holsters from makers on the Seecamp forum but I wanted something quickly & I used a 10% discount code at Optics Planet & got a Galco horsehide po...

Re: My P-83

I like P64s too & FEG PA-63s & SMC-918s, all good carry guns but to me they're not as fun to shoot as the larger & heavier Makarov, P83 & CZ82. It's an addiction.

Seecamp LWS .32

Here is a Seecamp LWS .32 that I picked up in a trade at a local gun show. Vendor said that he has carried it for years but never fired it. It came with the box, manual, warranty card, 2 mags & a box of Winchester Silvertips. I thought that one of the mags was aftermarket (no markings on it & differ...

Re: My P-83

My favorite trio of 9x18 shooters- Bulgarian Makarov, Wanad P83 & CZ82. It would be hard to decide which one I like best.

Re: My P-83

Does Dalvar have a webpage? Or do you at least have some good contact if for them? Weasel I do not think that he has a website anymore. Tadeusz "Tad" Dawidowicz, in Kingsland, TX, e-mail: dalvar_usa@juno.com, phone: (325) 388-5646. By the way, he has a nice one listed on Auction Arms now. Coinciden...

And I remember stripping a good P64 to sell parts to forum members.

Re: Parts for a PA-63

? I wish I knew. It seems that it doesn't matter what parts I have on hand, I would not have the part that I need. I saw a PA-63 parts kit sell on eBay for more than I paid for a complete pistol.

Re: My P-83

I had a pristine American Eagle Edition that Dalvar imported several years ago, before the surplus imports of the last couple of years, it was so nice & no parts around so I was afraid to shoot it much, finally sold it to a collector. I finally got a surplus military P83 like yours from Dalvar & it'...

Puma Chiappa 1911-22

Great pistol, especially for a 1911 guy! Has a Matty Mattel look to it but it is a accurate & reliable shooter. Not a single malfunction after the first range session of 200 rounds and as accurate as my Ruger MKIII Target 6 7/8". Extra mags are a lttle hard to find. I got a couple spares for $20 eac...

Barnaul Ammo????

About the same as Silver Bear. No problems in any of my 9x18 pistols.
