Re: Failure to feed

The round under the top round looks like it is stuck nose down in the mag. Is there any chance that these are 9mm Luger rounds and not 9x18 rounds? Sorry to suggest this but it would account for the top round being "lodged" and very difficult to move. other wise maybe some needle nose pliers and pul...

Re: Failure to feed

Can't you push the round forward the rest of the way out of the mag and partially into the chamber? If not I think you should be able to lever it up using a very thin blade screwdriver. The lips should flex enough to let it loose. Just watch that the blade tip does not contact the primer.

Re: STAR BM 9mm

Ok guys, the Peach wood grips were not dried enough before I made them so they ended up warping bad, won't make that mistake again. Scored some beautiful Black Walnut at a gunshow awhile back and finally got around to making some grips out of it. What do Y'all think of them on my Star BM? I think I ...

Re: P-64's increasing in " Value " ?

They most likely will increase in value if for nothing else than the source will dry up and supply dwindle. As in all commodities, when supply vanishes worth goes up.

Re: J&G sales and Classic firearms feedback

Have you sent those pictures to Classic?? While the condition is not acceptable I can see how it made it past the person who was not terribly interested in doing a full and complete inspection before shipping the weapon. Without field stripping the gun it would appear that from the non ejection port...

Re: P64 shooting tips

Get some Polish Iron grips, that will help a lot with the recoil problem so you will stop flinching. And then relax and concentrate.

Re: Unissued / Never Used P64 ?

Considering that the blueing process used on most firearms of this era did not add any thickness to the parts it did not change the tolerances at all so it could easily be done after firing just a quick polish of the metal to remove scratches and then blue it. Now that is not correct with parkerizin...

Re: Unissued / Never Used P64 ?

Now as to the question of finish NOT being disturbed, I know that some times parts are tested prior to having their final finish applied so they have to apperance of never having been "used" and Radom may have followed that practice.

Re: Unissued / Never Used P64 ?

Also, since they were NOT meant to be sold commercially and were meant only for the military and the police, the chances that each one was test fired with at least 2-3 rounds is extremely high, as they were all made in the Radom factory which has a great reputation for quality, and they would have t...
