they're not mak's in any way. they're p64's. they just happen to fire the 9x18 MAKAROV cartridge.Are the Polish marked Mak P64s uncommon?
It's heavy has horrendous double action trigger pull and is less reliable then Makarov or CZ82. I was raised 10km from Zielonka where this weapon was designed and would not spend dime to get it. The Ruger LCP is far superior close range defensive weapon and used ones can be had for just over $200.Are the Polish marked Mak P64s uncommon?
eh, with a spring swap the double action pull isn't bad, and the single action pull is outstanding. mine is reliable.I bought one in pristine condition last year for $180 and just sold it for what I paid just to get rid of it. The Makarovs are still my favorite 9X18 pistols. As slavico said, the double action pull is horrendous.
z polski rzeczypospolitej ludowej, wujku.I do not understand the reliability statements are comming from.
the competition for the p64 is not lcp but the lc9 superior weapon to the polish pistol in every way.Like 45collector above, I made the spring changes and the Houge slip on grip. The P64 still has a stiff recoil to me but not as uncomfortable as my LCP. When I first got into 9X18 pistols, I wanted one of each and got most of them. Didn't get the smaller FEG models but did have a PA-63 for a short time. Have bought several more Makarovs and now only have one CZ82 and one P64. To me the P64 is a fine all steel frame gun that is reliable and fairly easy to carry. In spite of any drawbacks, I like my P64 and may buy another.
I don't see them as competition. I see them as cold war collectable cool ass 9x18 pistols. Every example mentioned I have owned and they have been 100% reliable. How can you even compare them? And further more one is made to be concealed "mostly" and the other is made to be worn in a holster.the competition for the p64 is not lcp but the lc9 superior weapon to the polish pistol in every way.
I think I got mine for $164 "before tax and transfer fee" from AIM about 7 months ago. It was basically unused. NOS holster, multi tool, extra magazine. Its nice and a hell of a good deal on a solid pistol. really can't think of any other semi auto for that price that could offer more. Sure you have Ruger and Kel Tec for a bit more but that would be comparing apples and oranges IMHO...I love my P64. NEVER had any issues with it. easy to carry too.
