Poland

This rifle was produced by Elektrospółdzielnia (EVANPLAST) for an unnamed line in Poland. The mould was used in the 80s, 90s and 2000s (1985-2003). These were packed in baggies probably stapled onto cardbacks and sold as accessory sets. They are nowadays mostly paired with the figures that came from the same factory in the so called “Polish 1st, 2nd and 3rd Gen” lines. All those weapons came in a huge variety of colours over the years. Here just a few examples:

  • green-black
  • violet
  • brown-black
  • grey-black
  • black
