Thanks from a new guy

Post by ox2828 » April 26th, 2008, 5:01 pm

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone on this forum. I saw a P-64 at a gun show and thought no way am I buying that cheap little thing. When I got home I did some research and came to the conclusion it was a pretty good little gun. Then I found this web site and it sealed the deal. All the info on here...GOLD. I purchased my 1975 about a month ago, have cleaned it up like you guys said to, replaced the hammer and recoil springs, and she shoots like a dream. Now I just have to get used to a little gun in my large sausage-fingers. Thanks a ton. :-*

One more thing. What is the proper way to pronounce Makarov? I've read it is mah-CAR-ahv, with the emphasis on the second syllable. Is that right?

mah-CAR-ahv is correct.But say it that way and most folks will think you are mis-pronouncing it.

When referencing the P-64...in proper P-64ish...you just say chuck. That is how Czak is pronounced in Polish and the Czak is the normal designation for this little beauty based on the designers names...if I'm not mistaken.

Ha, ha, ha. You are all right. I have a Spanish friend that calls it a different name every time he attempts to say it. :D I still cannot get him to say Smith & WessON. He always says Smith & WessTON. :D
