Hungarian "Cold War" Collection 1945 - 1990

Article about: It's the same cotton-filled material which the Red Army introduced in WW2 (Telogreika), which was excellent against the cold - and possibly was more fire-poof... QUOTE=Scout;937204]Nice find

    Interesting uniform items. Thanks for showing.

    I especially like this visor cap. So much better looking than the silly big clown visor caps seen later originating in Russia. This and the WWII Russian visor caps looks good.

    'Glad you're saying this...
    Interesting bit: After 1956, the Hungarian Army's uniform was loosely based on WW2 British and some of it; Cuban (post-Castro - and in since the Cuban Army uniforms was somewhat resembeled the US Army style - it can be said: the Hungarian Army uniforms style, after 1956 were a strange mix of British, US and WW2 Hungarian (especially the "Bocskai caps") styles...

    the item for today:

    Hungarian M50 "Parade" helmet - with national "red-white-green" + red star decal.
    I belive, these are rare now, most if them were destroyed post 1956 uprising.

    The cost was around 20 dollars and it's in very good condition:

    THX Guys,
    Newest pick-up:

    cold-war (probably 1960s-70s) armpit gun holster for police "detectives" and millitary police - most likely for the Hungarian FÉG PA-63 guns.
    (I'll attach photos of the gun also...however, I don't own any in my collection...yet.)

    Nice holster. Good pick-up.
    FEG has made some very nice guns IMO.
    I was always under the impression, that the quality was good.
    My favourite is the 37M with the pronounced finger rest (a favourite with the Luftwaffe, if I remember correctly) and also the Frommer STOP.
    The later FEG P9R etc are also nice guns.
