Re: stupid question

I doubt it. There are aftermarket grips for your P64 from several sources. Sights not so much.

Free men are not equal. Equal men are not free.

Re: Beautiful 1969 U Fix Em (**New Trigger Reset Issue**)

The trigger should rebound before the trigger is released.

Hold the trigger all the way back while pressing the hammer fully forward and then, while still holding the trigger back, release the hammer.

Does the hammer rebound slightly when released?

Re: Beautiful 1969 U Fix Em (**New Trigger Reset Issue**)

Thought so.
The geometry of the hammer strut and the hammer should result in the normal resting position of the hammer to be slightly back from the rear of the slide. This allows for the safety notch on the hammer to engage the sear.

The grip panels keep the internal parts in proper alignment.

Re: Beautiful 1969 U Fix Em (**New Trigger Reset Issue**)

I am pretty sure it should, but I am not at home now and cannot check myself.

Hopefully someone can check theirs and see.

Re: Beautiful 1969 U Fix Em (**New Trigger Reset Issue**)

Welcome, 'smoothsoul'! Starting with an UNLOADED gun, cock the hammer and with your thumb on the hammer press the trigger and slowly lower the hammer, pushing it all the way forward while holding the trigger back. Then release pressure on the hammer and trigger. Does your hammer rebound or remain fu...

Re: Hammer spring changed to 18 lbs, but....

Typically on these Walther PP/PPK clones polishing the hammer strut and more importantly the area of the hammer between the safety notch and the single-action notch will smooth out the double-action trigger pull. Just don't touch the single-action notch itself.

Re: DA Trigger Pull Question [Reprise]

I doubt that the slide will fully close on a 9mm snap cap. 9mm Makarov is 9x18 while 9mm Parabellum is 9x19. Maybe close enough for government work, though. ;-)
Better to hand polish unless you are experienced with the Dremel, IMO. Easy to take it off. Hard to put it back.

Re: DA Trigger Pull Question [Reprise]

I have polished my hammer strut, the inside of my hammer spring and the hammer between the safety notch and the single-action notch. Don't touch the single-action notch, single-action trigger pull is light enough already.

5 Lies About Poland

Unfortunately, we do not have a "non-firearms related" section here as do most gun boards, so I'll just have to post this here and if the moderator thinks that it's inappropriate he can delete it. It's a video from Poland (in English) titled: 5 Lies About Poland http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p67IVw...

Re: Anyone have a Beretta model 1934?

The Beretta Model 1934 was made for the Italian military. Yours may or may not be military marked as they were sold to civilians as well. You should completely disassemble and clean the magazine and check the feed lips for being bent if it won't feed right. I think Wolff Gunsprings has recoil and ma...
