In 1940, the Russians introduced the PPSh-41 in response to their experience during the Winter War against Finland. This Russian select-fire submachine gun saw heavy use during WWII and continued use through Vietnam by other communist bloc countries. The USSR would go on to make over 6 million PPSh-41s by the end of World War II. Our replica is all metal and wood. It features a removable magazine, working bolt and trigger, weight around 10 lbs.
