Status: In-Stock / Please Call to Purchase

This Chester County Armory listing is for a rare, original, factory-made and finished, PPSh-41 7.62×25 Tokarev transferable machine gun with a bit of a storied past. This shiny and seldom-seen chromed variant was supposedly a dress/display gun for the Soviet Government. As weapons often due, this particular item has a handed-down, yet completely unsubstantiated story that goes along with it.

It has been relayed to us from the previous owner that this weapon was mistakenly left behind in a Las Vegas hotel room by a visiting Soviet envoy in the late 1950’s or early 1960’s. When discovered by the hotel, management contacted the Las Vegas Police Department, who, in turn, contacted the Soviet government group who had left it. Since they were already on their way out of the United States, and not wanting to return, they supposedly “gifted” it to the Las Vegas Police Department. While in the LVPD’s possession, it was added to the NFA registry, and remained in their possession for most of the 1980’s. How much of that is truly accurate, we do not know, however, the item was transferred from the possession of the Las Vegas Police Department, and the stock is stamped with “LVPD” and “102” on the rear of the stock.

This machine gun is in fully functional mechanical condition. The internals do not note significant wear, and it fires and functions appropriately. Cosmetically, it notes its age, as the chrome finish is beginning to flake off at spots, mostly around the muzzle. While the finish is far from perfect, this weapon does not exhibit any cracks, dents, dings, gouges, malformations, etc., that would detrimental to its functionality.

This machine gun will include an original 71rd drum magazine in matching chrome finish and eight additional 35rd box magazines (in standard black parkerziation).

This machine gun is fully transferable and is currently on a Form 3.
