Re: differences between pre 72 and post 72?

What are the differences in the mags? My '69 was missing one of the two promised mags and one from a '75 was subbed by the clerk. I did not see any difference, it fit and looked good to my eyes. I did notice at the range last week that the one one mag I tried did not reliably lock open when empty. I...

Re: Polish Iron V05 grips, road testing

Having just fired my own little beast for the first time a couple of nights ago I can say that there is a built in demand for AM grips such as these. I look forward to hearing from Russ about them.

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

I shot the P-64 last night. It is very accurate, shooting directly to point of aim at 7 yards. Recoil was sprightly but not terribly heavy. The grips are TERRIBLE! by the third magazine I was ready to stop. Just before shooting the P-64 I had the East German Makarov out shooting the same Red Army St...

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

Well, I'm all packed up for my trip to the range tonight with a good pal. It was supposed to be a goodbye to standard capacity magazine night as the ban on standard capacity mags here in CA goes into effect July 1 and I will be in OR on a road trip for the rest of that time. A Beretta 92FS goes alon...

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

Is there a book out on the P-64? I have books on many other pistols including the Makarovs & the CZ-52. I enjoy seeing the history and the explanation of things like this mysterious multi-tool. On a different subject, I am sure getting a lot of different opinions about the recoil of this pistol. Sat...

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

As it happened, I did not make it to the range last night. We'll try again next week. I did get the springs ordered they should arrive in a week or so. The other P-64 related thing is that a black leather holster arrived that had been sourced from Ebay. I had previously bought another "P-64" holster...

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

The recoil spring has no part in the trigger pull since it's only attached to the barrel and not the trigger, trigger bar, or hammer. The recoil spring assists with recoil and extraction. The Calibration Pak is only for the recoil spring. The Hammer Spring Pak are for the hammer spring. You will ne...

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

get the calibration spring pak. Multiple spring weights so you can experiment and they are not expensive at all. And a 3 finger hold is needed unless you have large bratwursts for fingers like a buddy of mine who could not get a 3rd finger on that grip no matter how hard he tried. You are recommend...

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

Thanks Ketchman, I hope to get to the range this week or next. I'm very curious how it will fit my hand. A three finger hold seems crowded and a two finger hold a bit uncomfortable. I find the East German Makarov very comfortable.

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

I see that in addition to the hammer spring kits Wolff offer a recoil spring set. I may just put off ordering the hammer springs until I can get a little range time in and make sure that all is well on the recoil side. I have no reason to suspect otherwise as the spring tension of the P-64 seems rou...

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

I picked up the P-64 this weekend and am very pleased with it. It is in very good shape. Used, but gently and with only a little holster wear. The bore is minty and only slight signs of wear on the mechanical bits. It was lightly oiled and has no trace of any heavy preservative. It will need only a ...

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

Wow, you're not just whistling Dixie about the prices. $50.00 including the ride PLUS 5% for PayPal fees. I think I'll wait & see how the oriental repop works out . . .

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

Thanks for that, I'll check. I rarely by on GB because the prices are usually pretty stiff.
