Got the parts for my P64 & did some grip mods (pics inside)

Finally got my parts from Poland that seemed to be worn out on my P64. Looks like the only thing I needed was a new hammer strut but it never hurts to have extra parts on hand.

After installing the parts I went ahead and did some grip mods to the stock grips. I took a piece of paper, laid it on top of each grip and shaded over it with a pencil. I then cut out the shaded grip drawings and taped them on the back of some grip tape, cut it out and affixed it to the panels.

I also put a piece of grip tape on the front strap and then cut down a Wilson Combat checkered strap made for 1911s to fit on the P64. I trimmed it down on the sides so it stuck inside the grip just enough to grab the frame. I'll be shooting it this weekend but so far, it feels a lot better then before.

I also have the 20lb recoil spring (I flattened the ends) and 19lb hammer spring installed. The double action is better but the single action is ridiculously light, but I like it.

Thought I'd add a pic of the Bianchi 100 PPK holster that fits the P64 like a glove.

There's a guy from Poland on Ebay who regularly sells parts for the P64; I've done business with him once or twice without problems.

Did changing the hammer spring lighten the SA trigger pull?
Liberty and freedom often offends those who understand neither.

Noelf2, I can tell you that changing the hammer spring does nothing to the SA pull. If you put in one that is too light however, it can cause magazine drops (mag catch is controlled by the hammer spring).
