I read that in Iraq, the Hipowers were a sign of status among Saddam's officers. If you were crappy - you got a Helwan 1951 or a Tokarev.

Didn't do him much good when push came to shove.

I recall them interviewing an Iraqi gun store owner before Gulf War II - surprising - they had gun stores. Folks were stocking up and he had a big poster for the 1951s.
