1st post. Hello and a magazine question.

Post by jimdgreat1 » April 21st, 2015, 5:12 pm

Traded for a 1968 P64 recently. Really like this pistol. Seem to have received a new style magazine with this pre-72 pistol. I've read to shorten the feed rails. Searched for an actual dimension but have not found one.

Anyone want to measure their old style feed lips with a caliper and give me the length in .001?

It would help rather than guessing.

Well I guessed and ground the feed lips back to .68 long. Didn't measure before, should have. Took off maybe .05? .1?
Pistol runs much better now. Still would like to hear measurements from others.

Ordered another from classic. Should have 2 more mags to compare too.

Nice gun. I'm sorry I didn't have the measurements you needed., Welcome to the group.

Bought and received today a 2nd P64 with two magazines. One old and one new style.
New style lip length .730
Old style lip length .660

There is a radius at the end of the lip. Makes exact measuring more of a guess. Looks like I guessed pretty close. I didn't add back the radius but will. Hope this helps someone.

Found parts for 2 more mags, everything but the finger rest bottom plate. Parts were on gunbroker. Received new old style mag bodies, springs, and followers. Made bottom plates out of aluminum on the mill. Wanted mags without the finger rest.
