Case Rim Damage

I have been reloading my saved brass from my P-64 and noticed that most of the case rims have sharp marks on them. I am guessing this is from the extractor. Any input on how to minimize this would be appreciated. I am considering taking a stone to the extractor and rounding over any sharp points. Th...

Re: New guy here with questions....

That is probably the last round hold open feature. Most semi-auto pistols have that. The slide locks back when the magazine is empty. you drop the empty mag, lock a fresh mag in the well, pull the slide back and release it. You are then ready to resume firing. Some pistols have a slide release. The ...

Re: Mag ID

It is relatively easy to bend them slightly. Be careful not to damage the edges or the feed lips. I used a punch to pry open the feed lips on one and a small rubber mallet to close the feed lips on another. Use a set of calipers to measure a working magazine and then match those dimensions on the ot...

Re: Mag ID

If you have problems with the KeepShooting magazines, you may have to slightly modify the magazine to fit your P-64 or tune the feed lips to correct feeding issues. I had some Star magazines that were originals, but would not feed properly. When I measured the feed lips, they were too far apart on o...

Re: Holster suggestions for Radom P64.

I use an IWB made to fit my S&W snubby. Works very nicely and conceals sooo much better!

Re: polish p 64 help

Welcome to the board. Okay, I will first say that I am not quite sure what is happening with your P-64 because you only speak of rounds 1, 3 and 4. I am assuming that you are using the correct 9 x 18mm Makarov ammunition. Using 9 x 19mm Luger I am not sure the round would even chamber because of len...

Re: New P-64 and range report

Welcome sir. I am the proud owner of two 1970 P64s. One needed the Wolff springs and one did not. Both appear to be refurbished, but some old parts were reused. I am guessing that one had the springs replaced during the rebuild. Both have the same 3# SA pull and around 12# DA pull. On DA that is not...

I have written them all. Sadly, most ignore input from people that think freely.

Re: Front sight replacement

Perhaps it is the camera angles, but is it slightly left of center?

I cannot sit at the computer for very long any more because of bad hips so I haven't played in years. They are still on my PC, though!

Re: FEG SMC 380 JUST STOPPED FIRING!!

I had similar issues with a Star B. Would not cycle until I replaced all of the springs. Now it runs like a clock and eats almost anything.

Re: Newby with double fire issue

Curly, my go to weapon for home defense is the .38 S&W snubby loaded with +P JHPs. I keep two speed loaders with it.
