My new grips finally came in from Marschals Grips in Budapest. I am really liking this inexpensive little gun more and more. I followed a buddies advice and changed the springs out and now an exterior update and I like it. The grips are Bubinga wood and stained.
The gun is accurate and reliable. It does weigh 10oz more than a PF9 loaded but
I think it looks pretty classy.

Very, very nice. I'd have gone with black walnut, but that's me. It's hard to improve the original two-tone look of the gun. I love my PA-63. I picked it up about a month ago, and after a spring job it's definitely one of my favorite shooters. By far the favorite of my Makarov-caliber guns. Just a beautiful little gun that shoots great.

I have one too, but no fancy grips. It's tempting to order some, but the whole "overseas transaction" thing kinda scares me. But I've heard of a LOT of guys getting grips from that vendor, and those look great! Now, anybody have one with a polished frame? Found a local guy that does polishing.

Thanks guys. i forgot to note that it weighs 24oz fully loaded. I still need to buy the dies for this round so I can handload it. I have been buying the Wolf Brown for $9.10/50 from CTD. I haven't been able to get any of the Hornaday or Buffalo Bore ammo but I have email alerts on several web sights.
I am interested in picking up a CZ82 now that I have a feel for the 9mmMak.

Dennis does beautiful work...and the whole "overseas transaction" thing is out the window in his case...he's *solid*.
