    PP and TP Series
    I had always been under the impression that the 7.65 and 32 were identical. When I was having trouble feeding on initial load and then every 5th round or so I sent the Manhurin PP in for repair. I was using Remington, Fiochhi, and Winchester 32acp. The gunsmith ( a Walther Expert) tested the...
