It's been a LONG time since I posted anything useful but I hope this helps those of you who may be willing to take a chance and love to "tinker" with things. I haven't verified this information because I'm well stocked with HS2000 and SA/XD mags but I'm hoping someone with a 9mm Hungarian P9R and an HS2000 or an SA/XD will see if this will work. Sarco has some awesome quality 10 round 9mm Hungarian P9R mags for a ridiculously cheap price (when you buy more than one at a time) and I think they can be modified to work in the full sized HS2000 and SA/XD pistols. The ones I have seen (and handled) appear to be nicely parkerized clones of Smith and Wesson 59 mags. The overall dimensions seem to be visually identical to the HS2000 and SA/XD mags. The feed lips and the mag follower are VERY close to being the same with one glaring exception: The last round hold open cut in the mag body and the corresponding cut in the follower are NOT present. I know that many of you have modified other mags to fit and I hope these Hungarian P9R mags will prove useful to those of you willing to "experiment" a little (with time AND money).

Here's the link to the Sarco page: http://www.sarcoinc.com/new18.html

P.S. These mags are NOT suitable for modification to hold more than ten rounds and I'm not sure I'd stake my life on them as a "carry" mag (but they could be used as some rather inexpensive "practice" mags if they can be modified to fit/function adequately). Is the last round hold open feature of a magazine really necessary (for the "average" shooter)??? Is drilling/filing a new mag catch hole the only "mod" needed to make these Hungarian mags fit and function (without the last round hold open feature)??? If anyone else has more info on this subject please respond here ASAP (for those of us wondering if this particular mag and/or mag "mod" will actually work)!!!

O.L.T. I was also informed that (with the proper "modification") the Hungarian P9R mags will work in the KelTec 9mm handguns and carbines (that use Smith & Wesson 59 magazines). If anyone else has more info on this subject please respond here ASAP (for those of us wondering if this particular mag and/or mag "mod" will actually work)!!!

***I just ordered TWENTY of those P9R Magazines (from SARCO) and I'll have to see for myself if they'll work. It's been a while since I "tinkered" with anything like this (but I'll post my "results" if/when I accomplish the task).***

***I now have TWENTY of those P9R mags (from Sarco) and they're BEAUTIFUL !!! These are NICE (QUALITY) mags...and I'm VERY pleased with them !!! I'll attempt to "modify" these ASAP (and I'll post my results if/when I accomplish the task).***
