    Hungarian-made, aluminum-framed clone of the Walther PP in .380acp (aka 9mm Short). I seem to recall that the AP9 model was a .32acp, though - I think that they've made these since the late 50s or early 60s. Value - no idea, I'm afraid.

    PA-63's are usually chambered for the mak 9x18, and those run about $200 on most of the internet sites... so with registration fees, about $235-$250

    Being chambered in .380, it would be a bit more of a saleable gun, but I don't think the value would jump all that much. I have a 9x18 model, but haven't seen a .380 com across in the stores. It might have some value just as an oddity, but there are tons of the 9x18's out there.

    For general info on Hungarian military firearms, try this link:

    http://www.hungariae.com/

    For specific info on the PA-63, use this link from the site above:

    http://www.hungariae.com/FegPA63.htm

    BTW, is it really in 9 mm Short (which would be .380 ACP in the US) or is it in 9 mm Mak like most of them?

    HTH,

    I thought that the calibers available were 9X18 (own one) and .32 ACP (almost bought one.) Unless I'm completely remebering something incorrectly, I don't think .380 (9X17) was an option. Was it?
    A Makarov? Simple, easy and works perfectly every time. íVale!

    Not in the PA-63, but there were many Walther variants made by FEG that did, including the WALAM.

    Patterned as the PA-63 or AP9 as the OP states? Awesome - what models were they?

    Having picked up a FEG AP9 at a gun show in a fit of who-knows-what a few years back, I can testify that the little (compared to my Hi-Power) pistol is reasonably accurate, but it does have a trigger pull in SA-mode that must be high single-digit, and DA must be off the charts. With the proper ammunition(not some Russian stuff that was DIRTY) this may be an acceptable back-up, but get the trigger worked on.

    I was specifically speaking of those marked as pa-63 or ap9 as the OP asked, but nm. I added those other models to my store of knowledge anyway. Thanks, Ash

    Andy C.,

    All kinds of things are possible.

    I own an R61, which is a FEG copy of the PPK. The site I posted shows it as being available only in 9 mm Mak, but the one I have is chambered for .380 ACP (marked as 9 mm Short on barrel hood).

    Century imported a batch of these just before 9 mm Mak became popular and re-barreled them to .380 ACP. The markings on the slide list 9mmM.

    The stock (horrible) trigger can be made lots better with a change of springs. IIRC Wolf sells a 9lb main spring and a 13lb recoil spring that help immensely.
    9mm Mak is still a snappy little round though.

    Point taken, yes, but I'm wondering if the OP's pistol came that way from the factory or if it was chambered for .380 afterwards. I'm real curious about this one
