What I have so far is that it is a P9 Prototype Magazine. I was looking to see if there are anymore out there and if the mag was ever used in a live firing P9? What year released? Thanks in advance

I'd vote for G3kurz or maybe Bo, if he still reads the boards.

You'll be pleased to know that I have not seen this magazine before. That certainly makes it more rare.
The markings and packaging looks like it could have come and likely did direct from HK GmbH, maybe the HK Pattern Room itself. Would be interesting to know how you acquired it.

Bluetwister? Any thoughts?

I bought the magazine from a German gun dealer. He said he purchased it from a HK Germany employee approx 12-15 years ago. He does not remember the employees name, but was absolutley sure it came from HK Germany. This is all the info I had so far. I didnt know if it was a one of a kind or if they were produced in limited numbers?

It must be pretty good if it has stumpted the Great G3kurz :) lol

That makes total sense. A prototype magazine that walked out of HK GmbH and was sold for beer money. The time frame is right also as in the early 1990's when BAE/RO purchased HK MANY things like that were destroyed to include various G11 prototypes as an effort to clean house and reduce costs/overhead along with about 1200 employees that were fired or retired. The very first P7 prototype (w/o a slide lock) was even removed from the company (from Helmut Weldle's desk in fact) by the then new HK Group CEO, a rich spoiled German. He just took it because he wanted it and could. I don't know if it was ever recovered. I think that guy went to jail for something else - well deserved.

Wasn't that the one that flew out the window of a VW when he hit the big rock outside of the new Stucky's just outside the mall by the factory? Never to be seen again?

Sorry... just got done reading the "history" lesson with Speccop and Geekoboy and I'm still in the zone....
