The Polish MP4 gas mask is a close copy of the US M17, which was copied by several countries including Poland. Since the MP4 was based on the M17, most of the accessories for the M17 should work with the MP4.

I bought this when it was on sale for only 4 dollars. At $15, it is still an amazing deal. It was pleasantly surprising to find not only had my gas mask been issued previously, but there was writing in another language (presumably someone's name) on a piece of paper where somebody would put their name when it was issued to them. I put it on, and it fit very securely: no air could enter/escape except through the filter, which is exactly what you want in a gas mask. It also seemed to filter out any smells and contaminants that were used on it. Overall, I would recommend this gas mask not only for its insanely low price, but also for its great filtering capabilities, in any SHTF scenario. Only complaint: I still have yet to find filters for it.
The item received was covered in talcum powder which is good for long term storage. The item was obviously used but not abused. The item arrived with the filters installed already which were also covered in the talcum powder. The filters were not sealed up in the blue wrapper as shown in the pictures of the add. Keepshooting was notified and sent a return label. I had already cleaned up the mask and its accessories. Therefore, I will be keeping the mask for the historical value. Buyers beware the item received may not match the description. I attempted to install Czech m10 filters and they are not interchangeable. Item will still be an interesting find for the collector. Cheek filters masks are obsolete any ways.
A little bit chalky but will clean up easily. It still has a very good seal would well a SHTF scenario.
