I was ordering some 9X18 Siver Bear ammunition when the lady taking the order and asked me what I was going to shoot it in. I told her a Makarov. She asked what kind and I said German, Russian and Bulgarian. She said that was fine, but don't shoot it in PA 63's. I asked why, and she said she didn't know, but she was told to warn customers. This is the first I've heard of this. Anyone else?

I have not heard of this, but the PA 63 is NOT a Mak. It is not at all one. The Silver Bear ammo is HOT and the Mak is strong enough for it. I bet the PA comes back a bit to fast and they have had a few kabooms.

The PA-63 is Hungarian and made by FEG. It has an alloy frame and is very light. They have been selling for $90 to $110 from J&G. It's 9x18 but I have seen some factory .380's. The .380's have usually sold for about $130 - $150. IIRC they don't use a Makarov Mag but one of their own design.

OK, I just thought it might be that thing from Ploand with the 20lb+ DA pull and crappy sights. Maybe that's the P-63 or 83 can't remember. Just that I looked at one once and was not impressed at all.
