ammo?

Well I guess I am behind the times but I just went to Academy to get some more monarch 9X18 and not only did they not have it they barely had any pistol ammo. There is a gun show this weekend so hopefully there will be some there. Is this going to be the norm for a while?

Monarch Ammo

I've been using the monarch for quite a while now with no problems in the p-64 and the cz-82. I sent some to nbender and he did some tests on it. The ammo is russian and his results are posted on forums.gunboards.com under the makaroz section. There is a sticky for ammo testing. I think you will be ...

monarch ammo?

I checked the internet as well and didn't find anything. I got it from a Dallas store. I don't know if they will ship from individual stores. They carry monarch in most calibers, like I said they just got 9X18 in recently. Most of the other monarch is brass cased and is more expensive. I think .45 w...

monarch ammo?

Not sure if anyone's interested but I tried some out in my cz-82 (new to me, wanted to try it out) and it worked fine. 100 rounds, I had one ftf which was the last round and I'm sure was a mag issue. Just bumped the slide and it went into battery and fired no problems. I loaded that mag with 11 the ...

2/23/08 P-64 at gun show

Saw one today at a show in Dallas, 159.00 plus tax with two mags. It was a 1975. I got mine from the same guy last august for the same price, also a '75.

I just saw that academy has started carrying monarch brand ammo at around 8 something for a box of 50. 94gr bullet, with the laquer coated steel. Has anyone tried these, if they work well the price sounds good. They would be for my p-64 and cz-82. i mostly just shoot the s&b stuff when i can find a ...

new p-64

so baking it off might not be a bad idea, i still haven't had time to sit down and get the cosmoline off, it's killing me that it is just sitting in the safe waiting. thanks for everybody's input, once i finally get to try it out at the range I'll give a report.

new p-64

Thanks for the info, I had been checking out this forum for quite some time before stumbling across one at a gun show and thought I had to get it. I guess I should shoot some cleaner in the magazines, will it harm them?

new p-64

Hi everyone, I just got a new p-64 at a gun show a couple of weeks ago and haven't had time to enjoy it yet. It is my first surplus gun and I was wondering about cleaning it. I believe it is unissued and is a 1975. I have searched and read several posts on this site, everything from cooking it to br...
