Featuring a design that borrows heavily from the trusted Browning High-Power, the Hungarian-manufactured P9R is a short recoil-operated, locked breech pistol of considerable strength. The P9R barrel is operated using a Browning cam system, and is locked to slide by three locking lugs on the top of the barrel, which fit into mated recesses on the inside of the slide, just ahead of the ejection port. Its frame and slide are made from carbon steel and usually have blued finish. The double action trigger system employs an external hammer and has a slide-mounted safety lever, which also works as a decocker when safety is engaged. This pistol features wooden grips, a fixed blade front sight with a rear notch, a decocking safety, and a 14-round magazine. Its wood and bore are in excellent condition and its metal is in very good condition.
