About the size of a PPK or HSc, it may not be as highly regarded as a Mak, but the P-64 is still a very fine pistol.The Poles have a P64 in 9X18 Makarov, it is not a Mak, just shoots the same caliber.
We can be a sensitive bunch, can't we?oh god man, do not call it a makarov....There are people on some boards who will litterally eat your liver for saying such things. I called it (and still do) a polish mak, and they decended on me. Luckily, the liver can heal itslef, and mine is ok despite the damage done to it.
They got bigger fish to fry?The folks who really went ballistic over calling a P-64 a Makarov haven't posted much to the new forum.
But sellers will sometimes label a 9x18 pistol a Makarov because of the Makarov's reputation, and that's why some guys got understandably sore.
No... But they CAN shoot .357 MagnumBut can the Polish Maks shoot .380 too?
It would be like calling a P-38 or a Browning Hi-Power a "Luger" because it uses 9mm Luger cartridges.Not to worry, I don't even like liver! It may say Polish and Makarov on it, and I can see where that would deceive a lot of people, but it only shoots the Makarov caliber. Its not made like one.
It is very easy to get confused if you do not do your own research; more so when you buy uniformed.Please don't eat my liver and I know its not a makarov but the one I put on layaway the other day says Polish Makarov right on the slide. Im not sure if they all have that on the slide but if they do I can see why people could get confused.
Does this deserve a B.S. Flag?The P-64 is one of the best buys on the market. Well, supplies are drying up, but for a few bucks to Wollf Springs, you can have the most accurate and concealable 9X18 ever made.
