An easier-to-produce and more cost efficient version of the PPD-40, the PPSh-41 was first issued in late 1941, and saw extensive usage throughout World War II and subsequent wars and conflicts in the form of licensed copies and Russian supplied small arms. This example was manufactured at the Vyatskie Polyany Machine Building Plant in 1944, which served as one of the primary manufacturers of the PPSh-41 during World War II. The top of the receiver is stamped with a star within a shield above "1944" just forward of the chamber, indicating manufacture by Vyatskie Polyany. Features include a blue finish, 1-piece solid wood buttstock, ventilated barrel shroud, chrome lined bore, as well as a flip-up rear sight set for firing at 100 and 200 meters. Matching numbers are present on the receiver, lower assembly tang, trigger guard, bolt assembly, as well as on the buttstock. This example is accompanied by 5 additional 71-round drum magazines, as well as 5 boxes of ammunition containing 350 rounds of 7.62x25mm Tokarev ammunition. NFA registry lists "Unknown" in the manufacturer block and "1941" in the model block. CONDITION: Metal components retain fair to good amounts of their arsenal blue finish, exhibiting areas of thinning and wear overall showing through to pleasant gray and brown patinas, as well as some scattered areas of mild surface oxidation overall. Very bright bore, exhibiting a few spots of light pitting and retaining well defined rifling throughout. Stock exhibits dings and marks from handling and storage, but is otherwise fine. It is estimated that approximately 5,000,000 PPSh-41 submachine guns were manufactured in Russian during World War II, and while it is a staggering number, very few examples were brought into the United States early enough to be Curio & Relic or Fully Transferable specimens, making this an extremely desirable example of an iconic Soviet World War II submachine gun. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS FULLY TRANSFERABLE ON AN ATF FORM 3 OR 4 AS CURIO & RELIC ELIGIBLE. MLW
