Re: Trigger Pin Out of Position

I must admit to having made the same discovery on one of my P-64s. Luckily, it was caught before doing too much damage. I pay more attention when reassembling, now.

Re: Polish TT-33 with black barrel ??

I do recall seeing a couple in the past and never gave it much thought. Perhaps I should have.

Re: I just bought a broken P64...

^^^^^ What Manicmechanic said. Always use lubricants that will perform at extremes in any weapon that may be relied upon for defensive purposes. On polymer framed weapons, make sure the lube chosen is safe for use on polymers.

Can't imagine ever trading away my P-64s. Welcome home.

Re: Carry questions- or Resurrecting a dead horse to beat

Ketchman, you bring up a great point so now I too, must go off topic a little. As you have stated, metallurgy is extremely important and is not exclusive to older firearms. Some modern firearms manufacturers use cheaper materials and production methods in order to compete on price. I guess this is w...

Re: Carry questions- or Resurrecting a dead horse to beat

The revolver in most cases has a hammer block that keeps the hammer from contacting the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled which prevents ADs. Snagging the hammer cannot result in an AD! I have carried my snubby with a round in the chamber under the hammer and it is completely safe. I will only...

Re: Carry questions- or Resurrecting a dead horse to beat

My preference with the P-64 is a round in the chamber, safety on, IWB holster. It does take a second to disengage the safety should a threat be encountered, but it also insures that I will not experience an AD should the hammer snag on an article of clothing while carrying. I've seen more than a few...

Re: I just bought a broken P64...

A good practice on any newly acquired firearm is to completely disassemble and thoroughly clean and lube everything before going to the range. I have found this to be especially important on milsurps. Also, always take multiple firearms to insure your day is not cut short due to a malfunction. Now, ...

Re: Hearing Protection

I have a set of those too, Curly. I am surprised at how well they have held up after 40 years. I also carry a set of tethered ear plugs and a headset in my bag for shooting my Mosin.

Re: I just bought a broken P64...

My thoughts on the hard wall near the end of the trigger pull,... You have two very good options. Either disassemble the frame and polish the hammer and sear surfaces, or fire a couple of hundred times. If you elect to dry fire as many do for break in, it is a good practice to use dummy rounds/snap ...

Re: I just bought a broken P64...

The old Bianci IWB that I use for my S+W Model 10 works nicely for the P-64, too.

Re: Centerfire Trainer

Last night I took the Dremel to the breach face and freed the firing pin. It has been shortened a little so not good for a spare. All things considered, I am very happy with this purchase. Cleaned and reassembled the trainer and it looks pretty good. It is a nice feeling knowing I now have spare par...

Re: Centerfire Trainer

I did take it down enough to check the internals. I thought everything was usable until I tried to disassemble the slide. All of the parts are in very good condition except for the "alleged" modified firing pin. It does not seem to have been modified and I am unable to remove the safety. It looks li...
