Re: Just got a 1968 P64 yesterday

You might also pick up the extended magazine release as well. I found it difficult to release the mag after putting on the grips.

Re: Just got a 1968 P64 yesterday

Welcome to the forum. I don't know about the Marschal grips, but I have Polishiron grips; which I like.

Re: Polish Iron V05 grips, road testing

I can't say anything more than what has been said. These grips work great.

Re: 9x18 cheap

Looking at the Bazer Ammo website, it doesn't look like they make a steel case, just aluminum for the Makarov round. They also have Berdan primers.

Re: Ammo with some corrosion

I'm going to check the rest of the box of ammo, in next few days. I have some other factory ammo, that I'll look at as well. I wonder how well the Russions follow the rules?

Thanks for the heads up, but I think that is just an illusion. I measured the three rounds and the OAL measured 0.936", 0.941" and 0.942".

Re: Ammo with some corrosion

They were in the original Silver Bear packaging. Don't know if they got wet, they came with a CZ82 I bought.

Re: Ammo with some corrosion

They look like they were sandblasted. I don't see any deep pitting, just the sandblast look after taking some steel wool over a couple of them in the picture. In fact, after cleaning another picture they would look the same.

Ammo with some corrosion

I was looking at some ammo that I got with one of my guns; which is Silver Bear 9mm Makarov. I noticed there is a slight amount of corrosion on the cases, is this a problem? Should I just shoot it and not worry about the cases?

Re: Hard Chromed, Custom Grips on P64

After stripping the old finish the chrome might not add anymore thickness to the frame. I just had to ask though.

Re: 9x18 cheap

Good price. It's about twice that in the Seattle area; which would be outside of Seattle as they have an ammo tax. I have a bunch of 9mm brass that is going to be trimmed down and reloaded.

Re: Hard Chromed, Custom Grips on P64

Very nice! Did you have any problems fitting it back together after the chrome? Or is it just replacing one coating with another?
