    I would have the polish P-64. I saw some recently advertised as new-unfired (stored away- I imagine...) for $139 each. two for $129 each

    They came in right after yours went out Otherwise I'd have offered em to you.. The Rossi (looks like a J frame in stainless) appears unfired.
    Pics WILL be coming tonight..
    Let us know if the gun (your det Spl) is acceptible...I believe you'll like it though..
    129-139 sounds like a good prive for a Polish Mak........They feel kinda bulky though.. and the one we had for 200 bucks didn't flip my kilt LOL

    Would I buy one? If the price were right, sure. (I don't need one, though, since I have three 9x19s that are smaller (2 of which are lighter, I believe).)

    PA-63s work. FEG knows what its doing there. I've seen one where the portion of the feed ramp that's part of the Al frame started getting some pretty ugly stutter-wear on it, though. For $100, big deal.

    I've worked on two murder cases in which a PA-63 was used to great lethal effect - three dead bodies in total.

    Would I recommend this gun over a J-frame S&W or a Mak? No.

    Have a Polish P-64 in 9x18. Double-action trigger pull is heavy but if clean it up it will made a good shooter. This gun is based on the German Walther PPK. Hard to tell the old PPK from the P-64. You can get them cheap and with little or no money can make gun that will shoot everytime you pull the trigger and a gun that will feed any and all ammo. Is this a gun that you would to carry each day? That is up to you, I don't. But for a gun in the workshop it is hard to beat.

    I saw one of those Polish pistols and was tempted, but I was trying to find a Makarov but I think they sold out
