Very good, I'm glad she likes it.

Field disassembly is similar to the Walther series of pistols. Make sure it is unloaded and drop the magazine. The trigger guard pivots downward. With it pivoted downward, the slide can be moved to the rear, tilt the rear of the slide upward and remove the slide forward off the frame.

Next question, what's the deal with the safety? is it a 3 position? does the hammer fall on DA pistols when you put it on safe?

Two positions, safe and fire. Most DA/SA pistols, including the Walther PP series the PA63 is patterned after, use a decocker system. When you put the pistol on safe, it will decock the hammer. If you hold the hammer to the rear when you put the safety on, you will see that the safety lever prevents the hammer from falling onto the firing pin.

Berettas, S&W's, Walthers, etc all have this feature.

I know this is an old thread... I have one of these PA-63's and I know it is a two position safety but the safety feels like it falls in three distinct positions. I took one apart and there are clearly two detents. If anyone can elaborate on what this is about, please do. It has always confused me.


Thank you,
