Serial No: E13532
Fémáru Fegyver és Gépgyár
(FEG) received an Egyptian Army contract for 30,000 Tokarev TT-33 type
pistols in 9x19mm Parabellum.
This pistol was developed by Ambrus Balogh, weapons engineer
at Fémáru and it was originally referred to as TT-9P, but
it was called and marked "Tokagypt 58".
It was a significant redesign of the Soviet Tokarev TT33 and the Hungarian
48.M for the 9x19mm cartridge. A new safety catch was fitted on the left
top side of the receiver, a convenient one-piece wrap-around plastic grip
and a finger support on the magazine.
Only after a few thousand pistols were delivered, the contract was terminated
by the Egyptians. It is reported that Egypt had payment problems and the
Hungarians stopped further delivery.
Serial numbering had an 'E' (for Egypt) prefix and a 5-digit number. Original
Contract slide legend with the Egyptian crest.
Comes with two matching magazines

Can be justified under Section 7.3 as a rare Egyptian
contract and on technical merit becasue its an interesting variant based
on the Russian TT33 family that had to be redesigned for the 9mm cartridge
& slide safety.
