Default New (to me) P64

I picked up a P64 today in trade and wanted to post up a pic. Enjoy! Can you guys that already own one fill me in on what I need to know?

I dug through that site before I picked it up. I was running around town with my son today with a G23. When I got home I threw the P64 in a carrot Blackhawk generic iwb holster and damn! the difference is amazing. Anyone carry one of these EDC? What holster do you use?

I carry one in the truck daily....not in deep cover though. Has anyone changed the hammer spring yet? They come with a crucial 20+ pound DA pull. I changed mine out to a 18 pounder from Wolf. Smooth as butter and a super straight shooter. Good find. Congrats.

I love mine and carry it whenever I can, in a galco pocket holster.

I went on wolfs site and ordered the heaviest recoil spring (24lb i believe) I and lightest hammer spring (17lb) It make WORLDS of difference and the gun is 100% reliable.

I would actually like to find a 26 or 28lb recoil spring but alas... no one makes them. Even with the 24lb spring the slide velocity is amazing. I actually cut a friends forehead when he was hit with an ejected casing and he was standing over 10 feet away.

BTW, Sweet grips!

Do you have a link to the slip on you used?

Very nice; I'm sure you'll be pleased with the quality of these little pistols and with their convenience for carrying. I sometimes carry mine but more often carry a Glock 32. Anyway, with my P64 I also went with the heaviest recoil spring & a light hammer spring from Wolfs and like the action oh-so-much more; you may want to consider a similar spring changeout.
