If any of you have one of those Polish P64's, would you please post some measurements form it? Length, width, etc. How is it to shoot?

http://www.p64resource.com/

Weight 620 g (22 oz)
Length 160 mm (6.3 in)
Barrel length 84.6 mm (3.3 in)
Height 117 mm (4.6 in)
Thickness 25mm (1.0 in)

DA trigger pull is too heavy.
SA trigger pull is too light.
The pistol is steel so it's heavy for its size.
It's not an ergonomically efficient design so most people find its recoil uncomfortable.

Altogether it's not a very good choice for a defensive pistol.




I still own 2 of them.

It's a thin but heavy gun that isn't as nice to handle or shoot as the Makarov is, but it costs less up front.

I really don't know why, but I don't like shooting mine, I'd rather shoot my P3AT. Safety isn't easy to use, grip feels too low, if you go high grip to feel better, it can bight you, and the sights are the typical ComBloc suggestion of a notch.

But as a BUG, I'd feel safe knowing it will work for close up last ditch work.

If you want a 9X18 gun, get a Mak or a CZ 82, they are the best.

If you want a $200 piece of history from eastern Europe, and want to pop off a few rounds every blue moon...there are worse ways to spend your money.

I've never shot a p64 but I have it's successor, the p83 Wanot. It's fine (notice I didn't say fun) to shoot because from what I read it fixed all the shortcomings of the p64 which are as amp and ajole described I guess. So, by extrapolation, I can infer that the p64 would be less fun than that to shoot. But they are inexpensive and from what I hear they are reliable. But I would suggest any other mak shooting gun for CC I guess without actually having shot anything other than my CZ82 and the P83 in Mak caliber. :dunno: The CZ 82 is a fine medium/small piece, all metal, very accurate, easy to field strip for cleaning, inexpensive (but going up), and holds 12 rounds in the mag. And it can be carried cocked and locked. The mags drop free under their own weight when the ambi release is pushed and the safety is also ambidextrous. There is nothing about this pistol I don't like other than the caliber. 9 x18 is scarce as hens teeth right now along with everything else. But I really haven't looked for it recently either. :dunno:

Thanks fellas. I like the idea of the CZ82 also, but can't find any out there. Also, wrt a CZ8s vs. a Tok, the 9x18 ammo seems easier to find.

9x18 ammo is not only easier to find it's generally cheaper than 7.62x25 as well. The Tokarev is still a much cooler pistol than any 9x18 but the CZ82 is probably the most practical of them all if you're looking for a carry or defense pistol.

Correction- 9x18 USED to be easier to find. :whistle: :hmmm: Nothing is easy to find now. :cry:

All I've ever bought is Novibirsk or whatever it's called. $10 a box of 50. I liked that. And I have never had any issues with them. Shot clean and always shot. :dunno:

I still have a pretty good supply of Silver Bear but I did see Brown Bear the last time I was at J&G. I have found all of the Russian 9x18 to work well. Some (Tula then Wolf) can be pretty dirty. I've never bought any marked 'Novosibirsk' but have been told that's the same plant the 'Bear' ammo is from.

Well if it is made at the same it's much less expensive than the others. It's a pretty snappy round but I haven't got anything to compare it to.
