p64

Post by keith150 » September 28th, 2015, 11:58 am

There is a guy on a 9x18 facebook page bitching that the rounded hammers are safer then the triangular hammers since the sear allows the hammer to rest on the firing pin and that any smack on the hammer can fire off a round ..... says that the hammer redesign is a design flaw and that it's unsafe to carry I mentioned that they most likely carried empty chamber like our military does

Didn't like my argument that any gun with a loaded chamber hammer down can fire a round with a smack to the hammer and now he refuses to carry his p64 lol

He should put that evil P64 up for sale before he hurts himself.

I am following that conversation as well. Lots of video proof. I EDC with safety on, so do not care. The site in question is 9×18 Mania.

Just to be arbitrary, this discussion/argument went on here a while back. It didn't center around rounded vs triangular hammer(s) per se, but moreso that a strike to the dropped hammer on a loaded chamber could fire the weapon. So I took my triangular hammer P64 to the range along with a 2 lb dead-blow, plastic coated hammer. Now I really wasn't gonna bang the hell outta my pistol, but I struck the hammer smartly from 3 different angles and never got it to fire.

Obviously not 100% perfect and a good enough hit on the hammer could, most definitely, fire off a round! I'm just not gonna be the guy who beats hell outta his P64 in the test! :mrgreen: So you might ask the guy making those statements if he's done or seen anything done similarly.

Safety 'ON' is recommended and I think it a good idea. But it's a choice only YOU can make....

I don't think it's a good idea to treat any firearm as 100% drop safe, regardless of the condition of carry. That being said I've had a Heckler and Koch USP fall straight on it's hammer from about 3 stories high ( ! ) and not go off
