    I just discovered that the ejector for my PA-63 is broken! Anybody have any ideas where to find one? Numrich shows them sold out.

    Mine broke too. I apparently bought one of the last ones from Buymilsurp.com, because shortly after that they were out.

    Sorry I can't help you.

    I stopped shooting my FEG blowback guns. In a relatively short timespan, the PA-63 broke it's ejector.

    Then my BR-61 broke the trigger guard, where it serves as a slide stop. Then, while test firing after the fix, the BR sent its extractor flying. Apparently, that's common if the extractor spring and plunger get gummed up.

    Can't find an extractor anywhere, so the BR is hors de combat. The PA-63 is complete, but I'm wary to use it.

    I bought a Polish P64 to take it's place. It doesn't have as pretty a polished blue as the BR-61, but the extractor and ejector are brutally larger. A spring kit has tamed the DA pull to within human ability, while maintaining reliable SA ignition.

    Try APEX GUN PARTS. They may be able to help you.

    Bought a 63 a few years back and that same part (think it was extractor) had a visible crack. KBI had a handful of them when I bought mine, but from what I gather, they are now numrich. Maybe a phone call to the warehouse just to see if there is one still around is in order. Cant hurt. Best of luck.

    I'm still looking. Tried everyone above, and several others. Anybody have any more suggestions?

    And I'd have to rate that feller at Buymilsurp.com as rude. Maybe he's not, but he was very damn short with me in his email, and any place that doesn't offer a phone number is suspect anyway....

    I sold my PA-63, but wonder if some of the parts from the FEG AP66 (.32 cal) might fit. I have a "bag gun", and would be happy to pass on the parts to anyone that needs them.

    I'm not familiar with that model. The 32 cal AP-7 (?IIR the model name, C) parts are most all the same.

    Yes, it seems like there are several names for the same .32 FEG depending on the country it was exported to.

    I got an extractor from a Walther (PP I believe) to fit on my son's PA-63, might be worth a look to see if it's similar enough. May not be an exact drop-in but could be workable....

    I'm buying a .32 FEG AP-MBP later this week - I may need some parts - what do you have?

    Thanks,

    If your P64 breaks then you're screwed. They have never imported parts to my knowledge.

    If your P-64 breaks, you buy a new one. They're cheap enough. They're almost like Mosins. But I doubt one would ever break, as well-built as they are. You've got more reliability there than with a Bersa, that's for sure.

    Haven't had a problem with my PA-63, but I haven't run it hard. Hopefully some company will eventually step up and make replacement parts.

    I'll be dipped.....M&M said he's got those! Thank you! Pretty pricey at $42, but unobtainum isn't cheap these days. When you need an obsolete part that's hard to find, guess ya gotta pay what people who have them are asking.

    FWIW - this is my broken part. It appears that the "dimple" is there for the hook in the spring to catch on, and that dimple creates a weak spot leading to stress cracking. The parts fit together cleanly, I may try to silver solder them together, and a gunsmith I know says he "might" be able to TIG weld them, but he needs to see the parts first. The .45 acp round is just for size comparison.

    Being an experienced home shop machinist I can tell you $42 for that non-trivial to make part is very reasonable.

    Oh happy day!!! My new ejector arrived today and the pistol works again! It even looks like a new part, not an old salvaged one. I'm so pleased, thank you dprice3844444, I owe ya one! I just may have to buy a second one after all. But I'm still gonna try to silver solder the old one, because I'm a cheap bastage.

    I was looking for a spare ejector for my PA 63 when I came across this thread. I have been looking at the Polish P64's ejector and to me they look very similar, anybody know if they are the same? Might be worth a look.

    I've owned both but no longer have the PA63. The specs seem a lot different to me so I wouldn't buy any parts for one hoping it might fit the other.

    the P64 looks "Similar" to the PA-63. It is swept back more on the top, and hence will more than likely NOT work.

    I've read that the ap66 ejector is almost exactly the same, but I dont like spending money on "maybes" if anyone has experience with using that or the ejector from a Walther PP (which looks identical in photos) please respond.

    The only places that have parts available for the FEG/Kassnar PA-63/PMK is www.gunpartscorp.com and www.buymilsurp.com

    However, they do not and will probably never have a replacement ejector. This is becoming the Holy Grail of the PA-63 community.

    I emailed the machine shop someone else proposed, havent heard back yet.

    If i cannot get an ejector for mine I will be parting it out if anyone's interested.

    Have all factory parts except: Ejector, Ejector spring, and barrel.

    All reasonable offers will be entertained on any or all parts of this pistol.

    -OR-

    If anyone out there in interwebs lands has an ejector they're willing to sell :D (hope hope wish wish) then im very motivated to buy it!

    either way you can email me: jdsanja@gmail.com if youre interested in buying or selling PA-63 parts

    I'm interested in all of the remaining parts if you cannot repair that.

    cool deal. I broke it down today, to see what is all there. basically everything except the barrel, ejector, and ejector spring. Also, the entire hammer block assembly is still in the frame as it was the only pin I just couldn't budge.

    I was pricing the parts out at Numrich and MilSurp and for all these parts theyd want nearly $400!! which i find ridiculous, if you want the whole kaboodle I could do it for $150 + s/h and any FFL fees. If you want to avoid the FFL I could knock off $50 for the frame and magazines (matching numbers all 3 so i really dont wanna split them up) and do $100 for everything else, a stripped slide alone is over $100 at numrich. (I didnt strip the slide so it's still 100% intact).

    Just let me know :) Joshua

    Actually as it turns out all my hopes and dreams have been answered by a member so I'm not gonna part it out, sorry if I got any hopes up. I just can't believe it this is the best forum!

    See what originally happened is that I was at the range and doing a mag dump quick reload drill and it misfired smoke and fire out the ejection port and locked the slide in the back position. We were able to get the slide off but the ejector fell out and the range is grassy. We looked but the rain came out of nowhere. Upon inspection the barrel was bulged and damaged inside.

    Despite ridicule from family and friends about its construction I believe it was a freak occurrence where certain conditions lined up, the ejector spring not being there along with a hot load resulted in damage but I believe its the construction of the PA-63 that saved my hand.

    Thanks to everybody for so much help!
