Gopguy very nice.

Do you still have the holster for the PA-63?

I am curios to see what it looks like.

Yes I still have it, but it is packed up like much of my leather is and would task my memory to remember exactly which bin it is stored in. I should really mark the bins and have lists, but I was not that organized in our last move.

However I found this shot on the net and it is the correct holster for a PA-63

I would not wait too long, you never know how long things will be around. It seems a lot of PA-63s have come in...makes me wonder how many more there are. If you find a R-59 or R-61 don't wait, jump on it, those are rare.

They used to be pretty common, turning up at shows for $10 or less. I bought a few spares and used them with things like my ex-British issue Walther PP in .22LR.

I have not seen any in a while. You might try AK Johnny at Comblock. 740-983-1842

Failing that are there any gunshows that take place near you? I can't help but thinking one would turn up.

Thanks agian Gopguy

There is one guy at the local show that had one last Nov. It is coming up at the end of this month and maybe he wil be there and will still have it.

I am also going to one this weekend so I can look there to.

If I can't find one at the shows I will give AK johnny a call.

Very nice! Especially the R61.
My first carry gun was a SMC 380. It was KBI and SMC 380 marked which is rather strange because the ones on the European marked usually don't show those.
I sold it after i switched to the Glock 26.
Then bought another one for the role as a pocket gun. It is basically the commercial export version of the R61 in .380 with black frame.
I am having the same complaints about it as gopguy.
Thats why it has to go again. We have license place restrictions and i need the place.
A genuine R61 would be a keeper though.

I have an R-61. Any idea how to date it? Or what the markings are?

Sadly there is not a lot of information around on these with such detail.
