Product Information

This is a WWII Russian made PPSH41 submachine gun. This example is dated 1944 and although it has matching numbers we believe that this particular gun was captured by German forces as some of the serial numbers have been struck out with a simple line through them. This is a characteristic of German armorers methods when field servicing and repairing guns. The additional numbers "420" are typical German style and font. German forces captured large quantities of Russian firearms during the war and made good use of them. Captured PPSH41s were designated by the Germans as the MP717(r). If this gun had been factory refurbished after the war by the Russian arsenals any mismatched parts were either replaced or reworked then re- numbered and then re-blued. The gun would have also received a Russian rework stamp and the wood work re-varnished. This gun does not have any of those markings.

This excellent example comes fitted with an original 72 round drum magazine and correct canvas sling. Deactivated to current specifications with tensioned cocking lever and working safety.

This item is currently at the proof house being certificated.
