MAG-95 and MAG-98 pistol (Poland)

The MAG-95 Pistol was designed and produced by the famous Polish small arms manufacturer FABRYKA BRONI “ŁUCZNIK” – RADOM. It is an attempt to replace the ageing P-83 pistol, chambered in 9×18 PM. This pistol appeared during the mid 90’s, when the MAG-95 lost in Polish army trials to the WIST-94 pistol.

Nevertheless, the RADOM factory decided to improve its design and soon introduced the MAG-98 Pistol, which was produced until 2000. The MAG-98 Pistol saw limited use with Polish border guards and prison services, and was also sold commercially in Poland and elsewhere.
