Re: P64 Newb, assumptions and input requested from the collective p-64 brain.

I have had reasonable results with Classis although shipping was a bit slow on one purchase.

Re: P64 Newb, assumptions and input requested from the collective p-64 brain.

Yup, it's broke! Damn, thinking maybe that the safety had one too many drops / dry fires without a snap cap and the safety barrel had a manufacturing defect in it. Sorry to see that. Let us know how it works out with AIM.

Re: P64 Newb, assumptions and input requested from the collective p-64 brain.

The ramp yes but again only polish do not use anything abrasive enough to remove enough metal to change the ramps geometry. The only other areas that I can think of that would benefit from polishing would be the safety barrel and detent and possibly along the frame rails but those will get polished ...

If it is the feed ramp, I would use nothing but 0000 grade steel wool, not 000 and 800 grit wet/ dry sandpaper. The job is to.polish the ramp NOT seriously change the ramp profile. If your not talki...

Re: Polish Iron V05 grips, road testing

Buy an extractor and associated spring /pin, firing pin, replace the hammer spring and recoil spring and maybe a trigger pin and return springs would be my reccomendation, but not because I have had any of those parts break, but from my memory those come to mind as what others here seem to have brea...
