How many here want to buy another P-64?

I bought 3 in Nov 2005. I seem to prefer to buy my milsurps 3 or more at a time. I also like the discount for multi purchases.

Now for something completely different

I have a SA Ultra Compact, Kimber Gold Match and I just bought a RIA 1911-A1. If I knew then what I do now, I would have saved my money and not bought the Kimber. It's a great pistol, just pricey. The RI is a great .45 especially for the money. Even after adding a beavertail, hammer, trigger, sear, ...

Possible #16 Hammer spring problem!

Have replaced main spring with 16# on 4 P64's with no problems. Have left the original recoil springs in. No FTE or cycling problems.

Any Handloaders?

I used the load data that came with the LEE Makarov die set. About 2.4gr red dot w/ 93 gr LRN. A little hotter for the 95gr XTP, maybe 2.9gr Red dot(don't remember).

The LRN with 2.4gr Red dot is a very nice target load. Accurate and very manageable. I've shot at least 50rds of the target load.

How much do replacement springs cost?

I left my recoil springs stock. Pistols are working fine and eject 8-10 ft.( not excessive ).

I used the 16# mainspring.

Up-date

I have a '68. It has a lighter DA than the '74 or '75. I changed all the springs and saved the originals.

Sight Enhancement

I shoot .22 in NRA gallery course. I found that after shooting for a few years, once I get the pistol gripped properly I can point and be very close to target. "Muscle Memory" like any sport, practice is required.

Range with new P64

I cleaned mine and changed the mainsprings before I shot them. Dry firing with the stock mainspring was very painful after a dozen pulls of the trigger.

Spring change makes a huge difference. Recoil is not a problem for me.

Thats a little off the wall. pss849, you are a minister? ??? How about SEARCHING your surroundings for possible trouble/danger, EVALUATE the situations then form a plan, and then be ready to EXECUTE the plan to avoid the trouble/danger should it be needed.

Pics, pics... I need pics

Most of these pistols being sold by SOG seem New or Like New. The 4 I got all looked New.

I am very happy with the Wolf 16# mainspring. I really like this pistol, so much so I don't think I will bother getting a Makarov now.

Another Spring Question to Ponder

I don't think these eject an excessive distance. I've heard the CZ-52 throws them into the next zip. Both my Kimber Classic Gold Match and my new RIA 1911-A1 both throw brass as far as my P-64s. This is with my lower power reloads in both calibers. 10' is not that far. A properly functioning Fal sho...

I found the popping magazine situation!

My hands are to large to fit the grips so I keep my pinky under the mag. This is a very comfortable grip for me and I have good control when I fire one handed. Never had a mag drop free unless I released it.
