Polish Radom P64 Pistol - 9x18 caliber - Good - Very Good - $219.99

Description:

Famous Polish quality in a P-64 Makarov Pistol. 9x18 caliber, 6 shot, semi-automatic. Comes with 2 mags. These are in good to very good condition. Mechanically they are all fine and they all seem to have nice bores, but some will have more holster wear than others and you can expect a certain degree of the bluing to be rubbed off, especially on the sharp edges. In the worst case,you should expect 70 % to 80 % blue and you may also see a few light scatches. This is actually nit picking our own product because overall this is a very nice lot. Most of the wear we are seeing is right on the front edges of the slides where they have gone in and out of leather holster. No pitting or heavy grease, these are clean and ready to fire.

The remaining pistols we have in this current batch are all very consistant and as such we are not offering a hand select option at this time.
We simply don't think there is enough difference between the individual pistols to justify the additional charge.

Note - Each pistol comes with 2 mags, however, please know that some of the secondary mags may have some minor cosmetic damage or chipping in the polymer floor plate. One good mag guaranteed with each pistol, please consider second mag as just thrown in (though we do believe it will be functional). They are As-Is. We do not warranty for these mags.

Historic Polish P64 pistol manufactured in the famous Radom Plant, semi-automatic, includes two 6rd mag, 9x18 caliber,
Some of these are a little better and some are a little worse but they average NRA Surplus Good condition.

This is the last of them, so buy one while you still can.

I understand you guy's

I understand you guy's concern and I agree that the description doesn't jive and smells fishy.

However, from what I've seen of MANY examples of these pistols which have been imported in recent years, I think the condition rating here applies to ONLY cosmetic condition. You're not going to see any mechanical issues, probably not any rust, should have a good bore, and the rating will probably apply only to cosmetic wear on the pistol.

I am guessing these last ones just have a ton of holster wear and are a bit ugly, but I would bet that even the most ugly will still work fine and be a nice shooter. So, it comes down to whether you think the price is worth getting a functional, yet ugly example.

I have an ugly one, I love it. I wish I would have gotten in on the perfect ones years ago that were super cheap...

I got one of these last week. Here is my video review. Cosmetically there is a lot of wear - I would say on the bottom of the "good" scale. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BGdqgC2VYE

I agree for the most part,

I agree for the most part, however I for one would have jumped on this deal months ago. I had waited and waited for these things to show back up at places like SOG and Classic. A year or more went by, so I went to gunbroker.

I paid 20 bucks more than this for one that's a little ugly, but mechanically perfect. Just like I bet these are.

In the C&R/Surplus game, you win some, you lose some...

I echo One Round Shy's

I echo One Round Shy's concern about the language in Classic's advertisement. If this batch of pistols is truly "Good to Very Good," then by definition the average condition should fall somewhere between "Good" and "Very Good."

Stating within the same ad that the batch averages "NRA Surplus Good Condition" implies that some number of individual pistols are below Surplus Good, some would be considered Surplus Good, and some are better than Surplus Good. Assuming the true range falls one level below Good and one level above, this means the batch cannot honestly be advertised as "Good to Very Good." Using the NRA Condition Standards, a more honest ad would rate the pistols as Fair to Very Good -- assuming there are any examples that would truly warrant the higher rating.

To put this all in perspective, here are the NRA standards, as I have found them published on the internet:

VERY GOOD: All original parts; none to 30% original finish; original metal surfaces smooth with all edges sharp; clear lettering, numerals and design on metal; wood slightly scratched or bruised; bore disregarded for collectors firearms.

GOOD: Some minor replacement parts; metal smoothly rusted or lightly pitted in places, cleaned or re-blued; principal letters, numerals and design on metal legible; wood refinished, scratched bruised or minor cracks repaired; in good working order.

FAIR: Some major parts replaced; minor replacement parts may be required; metal rusted, may be lightly pitted all over, vigorously cleaned or re-blued; rounded edges of metal and wood; principal lettering, numerals and design on metal partly obliterated; wood scratched, bruised, cracked or repaired where broken; in fair working order or can be easily repaired and placed in working order.

Now let's revisit another statement in the company's advertisement:

"The remaining pistols we have in this current batch are all very consistant (sic) and as such we are not offering a hand select option at this time.
We simply don't think there is enough difference between the individual pistols to justify the additional charge. "

To me, there is a huge difference between NRA Fair and NRA Very Good. My guess is that if Classic sees little difference in condition from pistol to pistol, ALL of this batch lies at one end or the other. The cynic in me says it's somewhere closer to this description:

"Some major parts replaced; minor replacement parts may be required; metal rusted, may be lightly pitted all over, vigorously cleaned or re-blued; rounded edges of metal and wood; principal lettering, numerals and design on metal partly obliterated; wood scratched, bruised, cracked or repaired where broken; in fair working order or can be easily repaired and placed in working order."

Caveat emptor.

From Classic's ad: "These are

From Classic's ad:

"These are in good to very good condition."

"Some of these are a little better and some are a little worse but they average NRA Surplus Good condition."

Buyer beware: These two different statements from the same ad are not consistent with one another. Moreover, the second statement (that, by definition, 1/2 of these pistols are worse than their AVERAGE rating of NRA Surplus "Good") means that you have a good chance of receiving one of these pistols that is only in "Fair" condition.

I called to buy, but they would not honor this ad. They said they don't advertise here. Price is $189.95. I'm leaning toward jgsales.com for $149 without the spare mag and holster.
