Purchased a trigger guard which was sold as a Russian T3 many moons ago. I am not entirely sure what I may have so any help with a positive ID would be appreciated.




















Guard is definitely milled and blued. The mag catch is thicker than a T3 and so is the thickness of the metal on the guard. The spring tension is also much more compared with a T3. Proof mark on the inside of the guard? There is a linear line which looks like it may be a partial proof but I have no idea. There is also a mark on the inside of the catch which looks like a peen mark or possibly a proof.

Comparison to a Russian T2:






Comparison to a Russian T3:






Comparison to a Bulgy milled:






The catch and thickness of the guard are closest to the T2. Stamps are minimal at best and the T3 is also void of stamps. The T2 and Bulgy both have stamps.

Thanks for looking.

I agree, probably Hungarian.
every Russian ive seen will have the hardness test and at least a proof mark on the topside of the loop.
