PPS-43C at reduced price! Is gun. Gun shoots. Is fun. Da?
« on: February 01, 2014, 05:16:31 PM »
Got a Tokarev?  Want a period SMG to go with it?  (Semi-auto version)

http://www.royaltigerimports.com/shop.html#!/~/product/category=2251802&id=9603895


Look for the one in 7.62x25 on the 2nd page of firearms, great deal IMHO.  Nice video too.  I've shot one of these, could not order it fast enough!

Bit of a stretch, but a lot of fun for a heckuva lot less than a Thompson.   Rooshian Mafia . . .

Update: picked it up at my FFL xfer dealer today.  Brought along some Lead Bullet handloads, basicly a case full of Trail Boss beneath a 100 grain Lee LRN, lubed with Lee Liquid alox.  These will barely trickle out of ONE of my Tokarevs. (0ne has a weaker spring than the other it seems)  Was surprised to find they cycled the PPS quite well, throwing the empty case a good 6 feet or so, no problems at all, no leading apparent.  Great fun!  Also had some 231 loads just a bit hotter (Will cycle BOTH of my Tokarevs)  same bullet and lube.  Again no problems in the PPS, case went maybe 8 feet.  I'm all set!

For what it's worth, the PPSH would fit into a late-1950s scenario/caper (like the TV series "CRIME STORY"). I tried poking around, but Korean War vets apparently smuggled some home and whenever they popped up in newspaper articles or police reports, they were referred to as a "Russian Burp Gun".

Must have been fairly useless after the 7.62 Tok ammo ran out.

I am considering getting one where it is has been turned into SBR by untigging the tigwelded but stock.

Nothing like a SBR with tax stamp included for like 700.00

   Greetings!

   Folks, I've got a PPS-43C coming: I'm in Colorado, and I need 15rd mags. Any sources that you know of?

          Thanks Much!

I bet there aren't any 15 round mags and 30 round mags would have to e converted to 15. At least I didn't see any last year when I was looking. Dusty Boddams

   Greetings!

   "Country Spirit" looks doable; perhaps the next time I'm on International Waters,
I'll cut down a few...!

        Thanks, Guys!

   Greetings!

   PPS-43C /9mmP ( All out of 7.62 T...) chambering in hand, and 'Country Spirit' is making three 15rd mags,
"as we speak". My pistol didn't come with any accessories; I'd like to find a source for an authentic / surplus
Cleaning Rod, Oil Bottles, and a Front Sight Adj. Tool...
   Any ideas?

            Thanks Mucho!

                          M.T.M.

I know this an old tread...A search turned it up remembering (someone) Drydock ?
and posted it in the way back  :)

Point is got to handle one today , first one I ever held and it is Uber cool .

This was chambered in 9MM ( a plus as 7.62 T is all but unobtanium )  course 9MM is kinda hard to find now ( Pandemic)

The other bad news, its stratospheric  priced   @ $699, these were  $459- 499 just a year ago , probably should have got one then...
OH ! well .... still looks a hoot to shoot  and a 1/2 the price of a Karr/Thompson
when planets align...do the deal !
