Original RKKA WW2 flashlight?

Article about: Hello guys, can you tell me, if this flashlight was used by Red Army during WW2? Found it in a book, but I read in Russian forums, that members dont believe that its a WW2 item. Thanks a lot

    ГОСТ,s - it is rather complicated thing.
    Yes but very useful to understand, cause the numbers are on many products.

    In this case, just use the old ГОСТ - requirements for matches manufacturing has not changed since 1945. In Russia now some manufacturers produce milk products using the Soviet "ГОСТ 1978".

    Default RKKA flashlight

    Is this type of flashlight really postwar?

    Soviet flashlight

    A short time ago a same flashlight was sold at Espenlaub militaria as being a WWII/GPW production.

    Espenlaub Militaria, Antik1941 and other traders are not a 100 % guaranty for WW2 originality. You have to make your own researches, a good help is this forum. I dont like the modern red-green lenses and when I have a bad feeling, I better keep my hands off. Helped me a lot in the past.

    That is true!
    At the following website it is being suggested that this type of flashlight was being manufactured until 1963 by Z.H.G. in Moscow; . This means that it could be produced during the war. The flashlight is not dated and possibly never changed during the period of production.
    Unfortunately I never found a picture that shows a Soviet soldier who is equipped with this type of flashlight. It is doubtful.
