Intrigued by the Chinese pistol; how is fit and function? Any notion how the stainless parts work together? (galling, etc)?

Moon, since you are asking two questions, does that make it a joint inquiry?

The finish on these 1952 made is not great at their production best. But that is true of most military firearms to a lesser or greater degree.

It seems to hand cycle adequately and the fit is important where it counts. These guns donít have a good reputation which may be based in reality or just the bias of a Communist Chinese copy of a beloved name brand pistol. . I personally never shot this before this tear down and beauty enhancement and doubt I will once it is all back together

The finish is not stainless. Itís just in what we call ďin the whiteĒ meaning the blueing has been removed as in this case or not yet applied as in a new gun.

Spit works too but that will rust when it dries.

I've found kerosene works great for soft stoning.

Iíve used kerosene years ago. I donít like the smell and absorbing it into your skin.

Pilk, deftly played, and very funny.


Presumed facts not in evidence when I saw the silver appearance. What finish do you envision when you're done?
Learning something new is among the reasons to get on this forum. Is your pistol really a PP clone, or more of a Mak?

Along with multi color metal inlays it will be blued and French grayed along with a period correct brass alloy cast grip to include a 356 banner on both sides.

So true.


Fresh airflow across the work area is a must, as is a pair of durable rubber gloves.


Wearing sweat soaked rubber gloves is no fun.

Pilk', unhappily the cited photos are no longer viable. I'm sure you will post when finished, and I'm looking forward to the results.
Is this a sorta 'practice' effort, tho' it's not like it's your first rodeo.

How are you doing in regard to "finger lock" (where you go to adjust grip on the stone, to find knuckle joint/joints "locked" in position), on this project.
