P64 shooting tips

Post by 747flyer » February 21st, 2018, 8:25 pm

Shot my p64 for the first time today. Recoil IS as bad as they say, but I managed to get the hang of it (web of my hand still hurts though :lol: ). My accuracy was pretty mediocre however, and I was wondering if you experienced p64 shooters had any tips on how to best grip the gun and other such thing to get the most accuracy and shoot-ability out of it. Thanks in advance!

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

At the least try a Hogue wrap around grip. It helps with your grip but won't help the web of your hand.
I got the PI grip for mine and it made a world of difference.

A Hogue Handall Jr (or PI) grip are both a little wider which helps spread the recoil across a wider surface lessening the "sting" in any one part of the web of the hand. A set of Wolf Spring (I did both recoil and main springs) takes the recoil away a little and deals with atrocious double-action trigger pull (my single action is WAY smooth now too.) But my best advice is to be positive and intentional in your grip. Do not limp-wrist it. It is a blow-back pistol. It requires a solid hold to push against as there is no swinging or drop link to lock and unlock the chamber. I imagine myself even leaning or pushing forward a little on the gun as I squeeze (not jerk) the trigger. I no longer get brusing in the web of my hand and am much more accurate (partially I am sure because I am no longer flinching anticipating the shock to the hand.)

Hope that helps.
