9x18 Woes at Range

Post by bobtx » March 9th, 2008, 5:36 pm

The good news. My P-64 shoots better than the Bulgy Mak and the PA-63.

50 Rounds at 21', offhand, 2-hand grip.

The bad news. I started to have problems with the last mag. I looked down and the pin for the trigger guard was working itself out. I can't get it to line up and re-seat. It may have bent. Has anyone else had this occur?

The PA-63 shot very well, just not to point of aim.

you made need a new spring in there

but this is how its done


If you have a vise its not so bad, take a wash cloth fold it in half , put gun and cloth between jaws of vise like in pix

then slowly tighten jaws on vise tell you can push pin in or out

PS . REMOVE GRIPS AND RECOIL SPRING

Bob,

I had the same problem, only the trigger hinge pin on mine would walk itself out after only shooting a few mags worth of ammo.

I replaced the pin with a 1/8th inch diameter roll pin that I picked up from Lowes. I got the 1 inch length pins and cut one with a jewelers file to the same length as the original pin. Getting the roll pin in its new home was kind of a challenge but it has yet to even think about walking its way out while I'm shooting. 8-)

The roll pin is definitely uglier than the original, but this is my carry pistol so I am more concerned with its not-flying-apart-when-I-need-it-the-most ability than I was concerned with the visual aesthetics of the gun. I blued the ends of the pin so its hardly noticeable anyways.

Hey Norm....... >:(

Where did you get the cool Zebrano wood magazine floorplate?

I have seen the vise photo a few times, but I just noticed that.

Would this have anything to do with the discussion about Dennis having friends outside of Hungary?
