Re: Another PI Grip!

For some reason I have had problems with the images not being right side up when I post pics.

Re: Another PI Grip!

Russ,
Have you ever had any thoughts on a grip for the Tokarev style pistols? The factory grips for these are a pain to keep in place and a molded grips like the ones you do for the P-64 would be an excellent replacement.

Re: Problems Possibly from Springs?

These pistols seem to be spring combination and/or ammo sensitve. But when everything's working right they are a blast to shoot. I guess trying to figure out what makes one run right is part of the fun.

Re: Problems Possibly from Springs?

I put the 19 lbs hammer spring in this afternoon and that seems to have solved my problem. No more dropped mag after the last round and out of 1 box of Red Army Standard I had only 2 rounds requiring assistance to chamber. I'll do the same with my 1970 P-64 tomorrow and hopefully will get the same r...

Re: Problems Possibly from Springs?

After I got home from work today I polished the feed ramp on my '69 P-64 then took it out to test it. Still had failure to chamber all rounds. I went back inside and put the 20 lbs recoil spring in and went back out. First 6 rounds all chambered fine. I thought, alright, now I'm on to something! Rel...

Re: Problems Possibly from Springs?

I would agree. There is a difference in the magazines for some reason, but it doesn't seem to make a difference in the function of either of the 2 P-64s. Boths guns are really clean. I have not polished the feed ramp of either of the 2. It could be the ammo since I have tried only one brand that see...

Re: Problems Possibly from Springs?

I thought I might have had the magazines swapped on my 2 P-64s, but after switching them out and test firing both guns that wasn't the problem. I took the magazines apart for both guns and cleaned them, although they were already pretty clean. The 1969 mag is on the left and the 1970 magazine is on ...

I used the 18 lbs reduced power hammer spring and the 18 lbs factory recoil spring from the Wolff pack.

Problems Possibly from Springs?

I changed the hammer spring and recoil spring a few months back on my p-64 using the wolff springs. Sometimes the rounds don't fully chamber now and the magazine pops out after the last round. Is this possibly from one or both of the springs being too strong or too weak? The DA trigger pull is reall...

Re: Rating Different Ammo Brands

Thanks for the replies. I have used Brown Bear, Silver Bear, and Red Army with no problems in all my 9 x18 pistols except the P-64. The only brand I have used in the P-64 without issue is from the box in the picture I have attached. I don't know what brand it is. I got it a long time ago and I have ...

Rating Different Ammo Brands

I have several different pistols that use the 9 x18 round, but my P-64 seems to be more picky than the others. What are some of the most reliable brands and the most unreliable for this gun?
