Hi-Power mags will not work in this pistol. Check with Jack First, Numrich or Brownell's for availability or a good source. I wrote a very good article on the P9R in the June 2016 American Gunsmith magazine on this very pistol, mainly because there is very little info out there on it. Check on line with American Gunsmith to see if they still have back copies. They should as it was recently published. Best regards...........Dick Maheu

I'll have to look for your article on the P9R, Dick. As you say, there's not a lot of information on this interesting pistol. I picked one up years ago and it's not a bad range gun. I got it because it was cheap, looked like a Hi Power and I didn't own a DA/SA pistol at the time so was curious. It's kind of a likable red-headed stepchild, it doesn't deserve a seat at the head of the table but you feed it cheap 9mm once in a while!

Thanks for the info on the mag's. I really not sure if I'm going to go through with the purchase. Sounds like if I needed any parts, they might be hard to get. Very little info on the R-9, but I do like the 3rd generation S&W's. I have the 6906 and love it. Very reliable. The R-9 is in excellent condition and a nice looking piece, but I'm just not sure.

there are lots of uncommon guns available that are excellent guns to own and shoot, and will last for many, many years with reasonable care and attention. but the problem lies in that many times, parts can be difficult or even expensive if they need to be replaced or repaired. and many times aftermarket parts such as magazines can be difficult to find as well.

Hope this helps.. The Hungarian Arms Works R-9 is manufactured by Fegyver Es Gepgyar (FEG) model P9R. This firearm is patterned after the Browning Hi-Power. And is imported by Interarms, Out of Alexandria, Virginia USA.
