1970 P64 New to me...

Post by meric » December 17th, 2010, 7:52 pm

So I recently acquired this 1970 P64 from a buddy who doesn't understand anything mechanical. He sold it to me because it didn't work. Basically long story short, firing pin spring was broken and the hammer spring was a bit stiff. :D So $12.00 in parts and $100.00 for the gun. I say good deal for me.

Took it out shooting after fixing it up and was impressed. Doesn't shoot as well as my 1858 Remington's, but then again I can't carry them in my pocket.

Here are some pictures. Enjoy

Great gun if attacked by the cast of a Jenna Jameson movie

Very nice that you were able to replace the pin and get it working again.

I actually meant the trigger spring was broken not firing pin spring. I ordered one from Norm along with a slide stop spring and everything works great on the gun. I also changed the hammer spring to 18lbs. I just need to get more range time with it. That first shot recoil always surprises me. A lot of kick for such a small gun.

Going for the Zombie girl's crotch may not be effective. :) Good shooting, good deal you got there from the non-mechanically inclined buddy.
