    Yeah, the 9x18 Mak is no fun in little blowback pistols.

    didnt try without polish lol got a pencil and some fine grit paper and went to work right off
     
  4. I'm kind of your "if ain't broke, don't fix it" kind of guy, that is to say I'm basically lazy. LOL

    Seriously though, I've fired two different types of FMJ and two of HP through it without a hiccup. It isn't my primary EDC and haven't even used it for that in awhile. I'm not sure that any current HP ammo has demonstrated good enough penetration, though I admit I may not be up on that. I'm sure either way it still beats a sharp stick.

    I bought two a couple years ago. Hated them, sold them both. Well made guns for sure but the trigger and recoil were both extremely unpleasant.

    I prefer the Makarov or CZ82 in that caliber.

  6. I put 7 shots through my p64 on Saturday, then switched to the .44 mags because they were more enjoyable to shoot.

    Sounds like fun then...

    Wow!
     
  8. I've bought a number of impulse firearms that were a 'great deal'...not because I actually wanted them. Not surprisingly, they eventually went on to another home. I'd find it difficult to like this pistol.

    I hear you and I may very well not like it.

    Time will tell... :)
     
  10. The p64, like the makarov and ppk really dig into the joint at the base of my thumb.

    I'm going to try a spring kit to see if that helps. Should at least reduce the double action trigger pull.

    yeah after the wolff spring i can pull the da trigger with one finger, barely, the single action trigger is awesome though, a crisp 5 pounds.

    It probably won't do much to help the recoil though.

    the wolff recoil spring tames it a little. Im guessing 10, maybe 15 percent, definitely worth it

    I got the Wolff springs on mine and the recoil still sucked.

    yeah it does but it got better, a little....actuall my grips helped the most but guessing bac wants to keep things stock
     
  16. I haven't tried them but some speak favorably about both the Pachmayr Tactical Glove Grip Slip-On Sleeve or the similar and less expensive Hogue Jr. for taming felt recoil.

    seems they specialize in more obscure guns, i like them

    i think a pair of their grips with the red star design in it would look sweet on my tokarev.

  20. Being Hungarian, they do have a focus on former Eastern Bloc pistols, though they certainly have branched out some.

    I've thought about getting a pair for my Russian PM too.

    While they take awhile to arrive, I can't speak highly enough for their quality and what a stand-up guy Dennis is. Mine ended up bouncing back to him from the PO and he contacted me and resent them, no problem.
