Tokagypt 58 Pistol
Original Egyptian Contract
Made by Fémáru Fegyver és Gépgyár, Budapest, Hungary
Calibre 9mm
Serial No: E13532
Price: £375

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 eventually
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

Close to Mint Condition

Section 5 / Section 7.3 / Can be deactivated to order

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.
