Instead of spending the money on a Bersa combat, I thought it would be cheaper to get the Hogue beaver tail grips for the "Polish palm pounder". The Radom has a ton of great features, I just can't practice with it. It's about as fun as slamming your hand in a car door. I bought padded gloves, but don't like the feel. Then I saw the beaver tail grip. Now I just need to figure out which size/item number fits the P-64. Anybody have any thoughts?

I don't know what size you need, maybe compare it to another gun with similar grips?
I'd like to see a picture when you get it installed

I just sent an inquiry directly to Hogue. We'll see. I've been carrying the Polish Mac instead of the Sccy lately. I just like to change it up once in awhile.

I received a response from Hogue. They said they don't have a grip that would fit the P 64 and that their grips do nothing to mitigate recoil. I was thinking less about reducing recoil and more about increasing the surface area of the back strap.
At the P 64 website, I found a guy who injection molds grips for the gun in polyurethane. "Polishiron". It looks like he has 3 colors but I haven't figured out how to select one. I guess I'll have to email him directly.

Just ordered the grips from Polishiron for one of my P-64s. If the grips work​, I'll buy another. These are wicked accurate little guns. The two I own looked like they hadn't been shot, but have significant holster wear. A video at the supplier that I bought them from have examples that appear to be unissued. They're $50 more than I originally paid but if the grips spread the recoil, I'll be confident with it as a carry piece. If I like something, I make sure I have more than one...just in case.

I have found them to be very dependable little guns as long as they are properly maintained. Snappy on recoil, but very dependable.

I shot a 9x18 a few months ago, and it was a bit snappier than I expected it to be.
I'm pretty sure I need one now.
Should grab one before the prices go crazy

Its basically in between a 9mm luger and 380acp. They actually make a decent carry gun. Find a CZ82 its a double stack, and IMO the best out of the 9x18 family. I have owned them on and off for years. If you want a light carry gun get the PA63 it has an aluminum/titanium frame... the rest of the 9x18 family of pistols are all steel and are heavier.

I really LOVE my CZ82. If I carried that is likely what I would carry. It's a solid feeling pistol, carried cocked and locked. I have ham sized hands and it just fits comfortably, fills up where it needs to with no extra bulk. It ambidextrous too. Both with the mag release and the safety. The mag drops free too. It has polygonal barrel so no true rifling. Shouldn't shoot bare lead through it for that reason but I'm sure many do. It'll handle +P all day too from what I've read. :dunno: YMMV

The reason I bought the gun was availability of ammo. During the last shortages, 9mm Makarov was the last to run out and the first to come back. And, the ex Soviet guns were designed to run on steel cased ammo. During times of plenty, the steel cased stuff is some of the least expensive out there. The CZ82 would have been preferred due to it's wider grips. By the time I'd made my choice, the CZ82s we're sold out, and when they came back the price was significantly higher. The P-64 is a great alternative but after a few rounds my hand feels like it's been hit with a pry bar. Then I start to flinch...then I can't hit anything. At that point I might as well be using the Skky and be getting peened in the forehead with brass. We'll see how much things improve once I get the new grips.

Can anything be done to the SKKY's extractor to lessen the blows to the forehead? I'm too lazy to reach over and pick mine up to look right now... :groan: :shock:

The ejector post is a cheap piece of stamped steel that either loosened up or never fit tight to begin with. The 1/16 play means the difference between ejecting to the right, over your shoulder, or hitting you in the head. I took up some of the gap by temporarily gluing card stock to both sides of the ejector where it rests on the gun frame. If you put your finger on the ejector end, you can wiggle it quite a bit. The card stock worked, but not very long. I considered tinning the part with solder or brazing it but I'm sure that would void the warranty. It was at that point I gave up and started looking at a Bersa combat, which in turn brought me to the beginning of this post.

:thumb: Now I know what to look forward to. IF I ever get very many rounds through it...

I have an excellent Polish P83 in 9x18 mak. Overall a much better pistol to shoot for extended range trips. Very similar in size to a Makarov
