Originally designed by József Kameniczky in 1980. Same as the FÉG P9R with black plastic grips and improved trigger guard. Issued to the Hungarian Army in 1996.

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.

It was commercially marketed under different names, including Mauser 90DA, Luger M90, Kettner M90 and in the US as MBK-9HP by KBI.
