Nice P5.


Just closed the deal on my 5th P5 today.


Careful, they can be addictive. Like, five in four weeks addictive.


One of my Var8 P5s is 101177, 73 units after your P5.

Definitely plan on more. I think my next will be a PP Super first. Would like to find one in .380, but I’ll probably have to wait awhile.

... Now I’ll just have to get the white lettering off ...
Remove the plastic grips first! Then puddle some acetone on the white paint or whatever it is. Wait a moment and rub it with a soft absorbent paper towel to remove the "Firestone" highlighting. Repeat if necessary with a soft bristle brush.

Don't pass up a good deal on a 9mm Ultra Super. Ammo is available and they shoot great. I keep telling DUA to try one to calm his P5 Fever

Nice P5!

Solvent on a toothbrush would be my choice instead of acetone. Some scrubbing with solvent should take the white filling right out, whether it is paint or crayon.

Isopropyl alcohol and a toothpick works to remove crayon or wax pencil.

I doubt the white lettering was done at the factory. If it's white crayon wax - get a toothpick & start digging!
