Did the Hungarians ever make a bayonet to go with their milled receiver AK-47 rifles? I don't think I ever remember seeing one.

No evidence has been put forth that the Hungarians made a "First Model" type bayonet for the milled rifles they produced.

It is also noticeable that there is no Hungarian AK47 bayonet represented. Even though the Hungarians actually made a milled receiver AK47, the author has not been able to find any evidence that they produced an AK47 type bayonet. Here again, it is likely that the Hungarians switched to the stamped receiver AKM production before they began producing bayonets, therefore, any bayonets used by the Hungarians for their AK47s were likely to have been imported.

Interesting, I wonder who's bayonets they used, Russian or Bulgarian perhaps?

I would say Russian more than likely as the Bulgarians were just starting their own Type III production also.

Hey friend, do not worry. I have a book, title: Learn Hungarian...
If you need it, I could scan it for you, and for the memory of your grandpa. :hail:
