Red Army Standard ammo?

Post by Knuckles69 » March 16th, 2016, 10:39 am

Hello. I'm new here just picked up a P64. Been shooting an EG Makarov for a while. I just got some red army standard in 9x18. Seems to shoot well. Box says made in Poland. Just wondering if anyone has used it or has any comments.

I picked up a box of RAS Elite because it was advertised as "Made with the P-64 in mind". It's the only brand I've had FTE's and FTF's with. It happens like clockwork, too. I'm wondering if the "Made for the P-64" bit means a P-64 with the stock recoil spring, not the XP spring from Wolff. Less powder in the cartridge for reduction of recoil on a softer spring and all that. If I can find where I put the original spring, I'll try it that way and let you guys know how it goes.

You probably haven't. I've come to find out that it's weak magazine springs that are my issue. Just a coincidence that they began to fail when I started with the RAS Elite.

RAS is good ammo. It's what I use in all my Maks. No issues with it.
