Seeing as how I enjoyed posting a review about my girlfriends new Kahr, I thought I would give a quick review on my favorite carry pistol.
The P-64 (Radom factory) is an amazing weapon. Simple, reliable, small, safe (for a gun) and shoots very well. It has a 6+1 mag capacity and is chambered in 9x18mm Makarov. It has a nice weight for a small gun but you will know when you shoot it. The recoil is not to bad but the trigger guard will smack you in the finger (not comfortable). You get used to it but it still hurts after a bit of shooting. I assume a grip sleeve would help some on this but I think it would ruin the looks of this ugly little beauty. Now for those things i listed earlier:
Simple: This gun is a very simplified functional design. You can break it down in no time flat and the barrel is not flopping around.
Reliability: Wow on this. I have never had an issue with this gun with any type of ammo. It is already 36 years old and still a little beast. The finish on this gun is still great even after all this time and me carrying it everywhere.
Small: 6.3" x 4.6" x 1" I can hide this thing very easily and do every day.
Safe: nice decocker, chamber indicator, and a 24# DA pull (more on that later)
Shooter: This little guy with it's 3.33" barrel can hit a target. I was shooting a can rolling slowly down a hill from 21'. All 7 shots. From 15 yrds all shots are within 5-6" with me pulling the trigger and no rest. as far as sights go these are a little small but easy to get used to. And the p-64 aims very naturally. I can whoop a gallon jug drawing and shooting eyes closed from 21 feet.
Now back to that DA trigger pull. When I first got it it was funny to watch people try and shoot the DA (SA is a dream to shoot). But it is such and easy fix to put in a new spring it had to be done. This gun is so easy to work on. It was my first gun to actually take a part and "fix". Recoil spring, hammer spring and a nice custom made magazine ejection lever. Oh yeah I should probably mention that this has a euro style mag release that is a little weird to use if you are not used to it. I found this guy who make a little extension replacement part that is amazing. I can now just reach back with my pinky and drop the mag.
For the cost this gun is hard to beat even though it will beat you while shooting. You can get these guys under $200 to your door. and the ammo you can as of now get 1000 rds for $175.
I really recommend this gun for a cheap reliable gun for CCW. I love it and carry it all the time. It might be a little sharp for some people but they do make fancy wood grips and sleeves that would make the gun more friendly.
Pics coming later today in a quick edit.
