Hungarian 9mm Model R-9
Hi: I just joined today and have a few questions on the pistol I have now. It is a Hungarian Arms Works 9mm,Model R-9. It holds 14 in clip,and was made in 1986 and is in mint condition. I wanted to find a complete teardown manual or sheet on it and if there are any after market trigger parts. Also if someone has one, and reloads their own amo, what is the best target round they have come up with.I have shot different rifles and pistols over the last 40 yrs. and do all my own mods.
Thanks for reading and I hope I get some replies.

Morning Jim;

I have the same pistol that I bought new in 1986. I am attaching 2 .jpg files one with article about the FEG P9R disassembly (same pistol) and one with an exploded view from the manual. Hope this helps. I could copy the entire manual, if that would help.

I'm not familar with that exact pistol but it looks to be a Browning High Power clone or copy. I'd check to see if Browning High Power parts fit. It looks like they will but I can't be sure without looking at it in person.

Has anyone been able to successfully field strip the R-9?
I've looked at the break attached above but can't seem to be able to remove the slide. Anyone with tips that could help would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure gun is unloaded , remove clip,lock slide back with slide stop,with slide back on the right side of gun just above trigger is the end of the slide stop ,push it in to the left ,from the left side pull slide stop out the rest of the way,put safety half way between safe and fire position ,remove slide to the front.

This is not a Hi-Power clone at all, even though externally it looks like one. This is a combined clone of the S & W Models 39/59. The internals are engineered just like the Model 39. Although the parts are of like function, they are not exchangeable with the S & W pistol. The magazine is a double stack 14 rounder more like the Model 59. Complete takedown is as described in the above Q & A. I have owned one of these since 1994 and for the last several years, is the only 9 mm I have owned. It is of topnotch quality and I've never had an issue with mine. I have been gunsmithing for 48 years and if it was of poor quality, it wouldn't be in my gunsafe........Dick

I just put an R-9 in layaway at a local pawn shop. Do you have any idea where I might get a few extra mags?

Compare your hard to find magazine with others, especially the regular Hi Power magazine and the 5906 mag. IIRC it is very much like the S&W magazine but the notch for the magazine catch needs to be lower. If you can't find original magazines you may have to modify the 5906 mag. I don't think any common mag will work without modification.
