Item Description

FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:

The FEG R61 is a direct blowback, double-action/single-action, semi-automatic pistol chambered first in 9x18mm Makarov, and later also in 9mmK (.380 ACP), manufactured by the Hungarian company Fegyver- és Gépgyár (FEG) from 1961 to 1978.

Its design is based on the Walther PPK with the same general dimensions and functions, and is made with an aluminum / titanium alloy frame that is very resistant to wear, and blued steel slide.
It replaced the FEG RK-59 Police Pistol which was also a PPK clone with an aluminum frame developed for the Hungarian National Police and manufactured only from 1959 to 1960.
Only a small run of these pistols were produced because it turned out that the aluminum frame had a short service life (compared to steel frames) and wore out faster and/or broke.
By adding 1% Titanium to the Aluminum alloy they rectified these problems and created the FEG R61, the first successful aluminum framed pistol.

Most of these pistols were chambered in 9x18mm Makarov, and the ones that were later chambered in 9mmK (.380 ACP) are still marked ‘9mmM’ (for Makarov) on the slide, but are then correctly stamped with ‘9mmK’ on the barrel.

As with many FEG pistols in the past, the 9mmK R61 was imported into South Africa and rebranded as the Luger M 380 (along with the FEG PA-63).

FIREARM CONDITION:

This gun is in very good, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
