Re: How to choose hammer spring strength?

I replaced my stock spring with the 17# spring. The SA did get a little bit lighter, but that only made it better in my opinion. Lots of lead downrange since the change and no failures to ignite from light hits and no problems with mags dropping. I will stick with my 17# spring.

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

Welcome to the brotherhood bear34. I think you will find that respect for others is very important here, as well as the high degree of knowledge and experience amongst the membership. I trust only an extremely select few when it comes to their weapons skills and or abilities, so I understand exactly...

Re: Bought a P-64. Best place to Buy Magazines?

I bought 2 mags from SOG, they were the real deal (serial number engraved), they were in as good if not better condition than the one that came with my P-64 and have so far proven reliable. And shipping was reasonable although I cannot remember the exact figure. I think they have a good deal on mags...

Re: PA 63 recoil compared to P 64

I have shot both, currently own a P-64 and used to own a PA-63. recoil is about the same due to the PA-63's lighter aluminum frame, but the PA-63 is a little easier to handle because it has a slightly longer grip and it's a bit wider in the grip. I think that the recoil in either one is not bad at a...

Re: Any one us Hornady XTP 95 gr HP 9x 18

I have been using Hornady XTP's in all my 9x18 pistols (3) for the last 8-9 years and I think they are great. Cycle well and expand well, at least when shot into water jugs. I carry them exclusively in my 9x18 CCW weapons.

Re: Rear sight- Removable?

There is another thread somewhere here about someone who attempted to drift his rear sight, I too believe that it is not fully fixed. If I remember correctly he had a real hard time trying to get it to move, but someone gave him a tip on how to do it. However, I am in agreement with Donzi about not ...

Re: Comparison: P-64 vs Taurus pt709 Slim Nine

Thanks hunter316, I am quite pleased with how the mod turned out. It works extremely well for these older eyes in daylight and well in lower light. Here is the link to the thread that explains how I did it and more pics.

Re: Safe to carry 1968 vintage with round in the chamber?

I have an original civil war issue rifled musket (1842 french pattern, unsure of place of manufacture) as issued by the US (they did, so did the south) with bayonet. And yes, there is "reach" there. Course the dang thing weighs a ton and just getting sideswiped by the bayonet when mounted on the lon...

Re: FEG-PA-63 OUESTION

I know I put in excess of 900 rounds through mine and everything was still nice and tight when I sold it earlier this year. And yes, stick to 95 grain or lighter ammo. Hevier bullets over time rends to stretch cross pin holes and produce stress cracks in the frame. Enjoy that little beauty.
