PA-63 vs P64 vs R61

Post by Geezer » October 20th, 2013, 8:52 am

Along with my 2 P64's, I also have 2 PA-63's. A friend that I see about 2-3 times a year has a PA-63, too. Well, I thought it was a PA-63. During some email exchanges about our guns, he mentioned that he didn't have a PA-63, he had a R61.
I can't find a lot of info on the R61. Is it like the P64 but with an aluminum frame? I do remember that his is made in Hungary and is chambered in 9X18.
Do I need a couple of these, too? If so, where do I find them?

Here is some info: PA-63 and R-61 are both made by the Hungarian F.E.G. The earlier R-61 was such a success and primarily made for police, that the Hungarian army ordered a large version designated the PA-63.

Both can be found in the states but I'm unaware of any venders carrying them.

When you vote, you are exercising political authority, you're using force. And force my friends is violence.
