Ok, checking back in. Since I did the barrel swap this thing has become my most used cc gun. I love the construction and compact size and it has been 100% function reliable.

I like mine very much as well, have 2 in 9x18 and one in 32 acp. Both never bobble.

just picked up a r61 from kbi for 100 bucks two mags and two boxes of ammo it is in 380 and would love to convert it back to the soviet round.only thing i been trying to figure out is that its not a two tone but a solid color any more info would be great. i found from numrich p63 barrels , seen that people have converted them from that barrel is it a simple convert? never did a pistol just wondering if head spacing is "preset" since the barrel is pressed in thank you

This site has great info. Some of the r61's were fully blued/anodized to the same color. And as far as swapping the barrel? Have a gunsmith that knows how to correctly check headspace do the swap if you do not.
