I just got this mask and I have no idea what it is. The closer I could find was the M-65, but there are some slight differences in most models I could find.

Any idea what it is?
Also, it's quite dirty on the inside, so I wanted to clean it. Is there any way to remove the exhaust port so I can just put it in a bucket of soap and water or is it better to just clean it with a rag?
Thanks in advance.

Appears to be the Bulgarian PG-1

Also, warm soapy water is probably your best way of cleaning it, pat it dry, and you should be good. On a side note, don't wear the filter as it contains asbestos!

Yes, that's it. Thanks.
It feels really nice to wear it after cleaning.
Do you think a 40mm GP-5 filter would fit it? It seems to be what's used to replace old EO-18 filters.

The GP-5 filters have been proven to contain asbestos, so I'd recommend buying newer, more modern filters. Not too sure on which filter would fit GOST threads (USSR had a different 40mm compared to NATO, but they should sorta fit in).

You can try to use a C2A1, Israeli, or another modern (Perhaps 3M) filter.

Sorry, I meant GP-5 model one, not an actual GP-5 filter.
The one I found was a France Auer c9 40mm Incendie filter. Would that fit it?
Here's the picture from the ad.

If I remember right, NATO doesn't quite fit into GOST threading, so it wouldn't make a great seal. However, it would fit on
