    Red face Polish power!

    Picked up a 1974 Polish P-64 in excellent plus condition. Been wanting one for awhile , and finally got one without the obtrusive dot printing of the importers info.


    Hmmm , pics ain't posting again!


    Sometimes called the Polish PPK (PPKski?), this thing is beautifully made and finished. Bluing is deep and tool or polishing marks non-existent. Equal to any 30s-50s commercial Colt or Walther auto. Being of Polish descent myself , it's nice to think this might have been made by a distant relative. Trigger is absolutely horrible , but Wolff springs are on the way. Found some nice walnut grips too. It'll keep my WWII VIS P-35 Radom and Cold War TT-33 company.

    I have a few in excellent condition. While itís an excellent looking pistol itís absolutely horrible to shoot.

    Iíve changed the springs out on a few and you can get the double action better the only problem is it makes the single action almost dangerous. I went with the large pack of springs with different weights and played with them until I found an acceptable combination that was safe.

    Going from recommendations and results posted on the P64 site , I ordered an 18# hammer spring and 20# recoil spring.

    I'd rather shoot my .500 S&W than my little Polish makarov.

    I prefer the P-83, Vanad, but hey, whatever floats your boat.
