Can you fire effectively and efficiently a 9mm Luger round or must it be the 9x18 Makarov round?
There is a you tube video of some guy who fires a 9 para from his PA-63 to illustrate that it can be done but it fires out of battery
and has to be fed through the ejection port as 9x19 will not fit in the mag.
I wouldn't do it except in the extremely unlikely situation that I find myself with no 9x18, a 9x18 PA-63, a supply of 9x19, and an eminent, lethal threat that will wait while I reload one round at a time. So better than nothing I guess. File this under knowledge for a SHTF scenario. Good to know but best to not do it.
