    Got it Monday it's made in 1976 but it looks like it was made yesterday, the best part it was C&R so the big brown truck dropped it straight to me, no transfer fees
    best $200 pistol I ever bought, it just eats anything I feed it and has not had any malfunctions at all.
    The Polish make great guns, this is their Police & Military issue weapon from 64 till 75

    How is it to shoot? I hear they are intense like the Hungarian PA-63's.....

    Very nice

    I've got an FEG PA-63 with the aluminum frame in 9x18. It really pounds the hell out of my hand.

    It's strange how such a small round 9mm has such a hard recoil in an all steel gun

    Its the blowback design more so than the round itself.

    You should try it in an aluminum framed pistol. ;)

    I agree.

    the first day I fired mine was the day I discovered I have a touch of arthritis in my right hand. I couldn't wiggle my thumb for two days after 50 rds. even my big bores don't cause that.

    Mine's been an awesome gun as well---built like a tank and showed up in like new condition for $180. I swapped the hammer spring to make the DA pull more reasonable and I've loved it since.

    Yeah, they aren't exactly fun shooters. Also, the DA trigger must be 25lbs or more. ;)

    I really don't think that's an exaggeration. My gauge doesn't go that high but I wouldn't be surprised at all if it was 30lbs. I didn't believe what people were saying until I shot it myself.

    The only modification I've done to mine---changed the hammer spring immediately! :supergrin:

    Another bud of mine bought a Tok as a C&R. Just curious. What are the C&R regs that make puts a modern pistol into the Curio and Relic catagory?
