József Tibor Fejes, a young Hungarian identified by C. J. Chivers in The Gun as ‘the first known insurgent to carry an AK-47.’ According to Chivers, ‘Fejes obtained his prize after Soviet soldiers dropped their rifles during their attack on revolutionaries in Budapest in 1956.... The Hungarian Revolution marked the AK-47’s true battlefield debut.’

The Chivers book is really good. Anyone interested in AKs, and their connection to Cold War history, should read it.
