    Question Feg Pa-63

    I'm getting a FEG PA-63 this weekend. I plan to use it for a CCW for the summer and when carrying my .45 Witness is impractical. I know it's not as powerful as a 9mm, but it's more than a .38 spl. A Kel-Tec P-11 would be better, but for the price, I think it's a good compromise. Opinions please!!!

    I got one myself and use it for a truck gun. It should carry good because of the way it's made but I perfer .38's. I always got my 3AT on me in my pocket. It's more a matter of what you like and can shoot the best. Good luck.

    Slick enough little gun for the money, basically like a Walther PP. Good JHPs are harder to come by in 9X18mm than in .380 or 9mmP, but not impossible to find. I'm not all that crazy about CorBon ammo, but I believe they make a decent "Pow'R Ball" defense load for the 9X18mm. The trigger on the one example of these I've tried was atrocious, but perhaps yours will be lighter/smoother.

    I bought one when they first came out.loved it great gun and shot very well.
    when my daughter turned 21 she got a nickel colt 1911 for her birthday and *loaned* her my pa-63.she lived off campus at OSU and the pa-63 was her apt gun.
    she only laugh's when I ask when I am getting it back.

    wolf's (?) has a spring kit for these guns. supposed to include hammer spring, mainspring and um i think 1 more. From the Makarov forums I have been to, these kits work well to reduce the 15lb-ish da trigger pull. Are links to other forums allowed?

    Oh yes, apparently it is recommended to use the 95 grain bullets in these.

    Sure. Post your link.

    Keep in mind that "spring kits" can often compromise ignition reliability.

    Agreed. I like letting other be guinea pigs and so far the reviews are good. Of course saving the originals means you can still go back.

    Here are a couple, one how to and some discussion
