    My new Mil-Surp pistol...

    Polish P-64 chambered in 9x18 Makarov. Built like a tank. Action cycles like butter. Beautiful tolerances and machine work. Internals are like new. Bore is perfect and feed ramp still has bluing on it. Holster wear but the metal is smooth and not dented or dinged. I'm going to hit it with 0000 steel wool and some Birchwood Casey Superblue cold bluing. Fits in PPK holsters. $149 at Centerfire Systems, Inc. - Your Home For Ammo, Firearms, Magazines, and Gun Accessories

    Looks like a nice pistola...if it's dependable, it's a winner!

    Nice looking piece. I had a buddy with a Makarov and that was an anjoyable handgun to fire. You need to add a range report on it when you take it out for a spin

    Thanks, I already have visited there. Great resource!

    I gave the P-64 a Mineral Spirits bath and re-lubed it and it really is as smooth as butter. The quality of the metal is really outstanding. Everything is in perfect order on the weapon. The action cycles so smoothly it just amazes me that this gun is 38 years old.

    I haven't decided if I am going to leave the weathered finish alone or I'm going to cold-blue it.

    Not sure.

    As a big fan of pistols chambered for 9x18, including the P-64, while its a very solid, well made small handgun it comes in a 3rd behind the Makarov and CZ 82 in overall performance and handling IMO. I own several examples of all these guns and the P-64 is a bit heavy for its small size, and has limited mag capacity (6), and felt recoil is considerably more stout than with either the Mak or CZ82. Wolff Springs does make a replacement spring set thats helps some with recoil and the tough DA trigger pull. Its a must have for this pistol. The P64 is a very accurate small handgun maybe more so than the Makarov, so thats a plus. I do like the small Polish gun but not as much as the Classic Makarov or CZ82. Looks like you got a keeper from J&G. Give us a range report soon on this one.

    Well, regardless, it's a great deal on a good looking little gun. Let's have a range report!

    Pirate,

    I want to get my new P64 out to the range this weekend but am a little concerned about the Wolf ammo I bought along with it. Is it ok to use steel cased? There are Wolf warnings on the other board and I don't want to harm the gun by breaking an extractor or something that could have been avoided by using a more "premium" ammo brand in brass.

    Thanks,
    ~Siafu

    That little P64 rocks for the money

    Wolf ammo is dirty but it should do fine. Nothing a good scrubbing won't take care of.
