Czech M10 Gas Mask with filters and bag kit. These are complete gas mask kits, with sealed never used filters. Each one comes with the two filter pieces and spare eye-lets An excellent military surplus value that you will be glad you bought. The Czech M10 Gas Mask is based on the US Military M17. While the care and use of the two masks is the same, the filters are not interchangeable.
The M10 was one of many Warsaw Pact clones of the M17 mask, and was issued to Czechoslovakian People’s Army and East German’s National People’s Army. After Cold War it was replaced in Czech by M90.
The Czechoslovakian M10 is heavily inspired by the US M17, but has many clear differences. The exhale system is different, having a metal housing with the exhale pointing directly outwards. Instead of the M17 style exhale, where the valve is covered by rubber and forced out through the bottom of the housing. The filter openings are larger and threaded. The head harness varies as the M10 head harness is made of a thicker grey elastic fabric with a rubber head pad and large rubber pull tabs. The M17’s outserts have been found to fit with M10, but are noticeably smaller, and the filters are not interchangeable between the masks. Due to the different inhale sizes, and cap attachments. The M10 mask was used by both Czechoslovakia and East Germany. And remains in use today by the Czech Republic.
