Anyone ever seen one of these before? Has the exact same vinyl and closures as Hungarian Mag pouches:


Front side-


Back side-


Looking at it from the profile, it is about 5" wide at the top, tapering down to a 2" leather bottom.

Got ID?

One of our oldest members, PRDUBI, was a paratrooper in the Hungarian army and he's said that he never saw a dedicated jump case for an AK/AMD. The weapons were either jumped exposed, tucked into the harness, or bundled in cases and dropped in groups.

Armies have a lot of field gear and they need lots of cases and bags. The pictured item could be for a segmented antenna, tentage, tools, NBC gear, etc. would be cool if it is something sexy like a weapons case, though.

That case looks to be for the PKM tripod and other accessories.

I have a saved picture of the Hungarian PKM parts kits from years before and that looks like the same case. The tripod legs are folded up and boom the whole she-bang goes right into the top.
