An S&W Mod.59(?) influenced modernized version of the FÉG FP9 to improve sales potential. Double-action lockwork and a
slide-mounted safety catch represent significant improvements. The safety catch lowers the hammer when applied, locks the firing pin, and places a
solid block between the hammer and firing pin.
The firing mechanism, flying firing pin and the rotating safety latch are incorporated in the slide. The double action firing mechanism allows the cocked hammer to be released, whith round in the chamber. The safety mechanism allows safe loading of the latched pistol.
Currently issued to the Hungarian Police. Partially replaced by the IMI Jericho Pistol during 1995-2000, with both being
gradually replaced by H&K USP Pistol since 2000.
