Original Soviet Union / Russian Federation PPS-43 7.62x25mm Tokarev Transferable C&R Submachine Gun


Status: In Stock / Please Call to Purchase

This Chester County Armory listing is for a rarely seen, factory original, C&R license eligible, transferable Soviet PPS-43 7.62x25mm Tokarev submachine gun.

Originally designed and produced by the former Soviet Union during World War II, the PPS-43 was intended to be a more affordable, mass-produced version of the Soviet PPSh-4,  to allow for the necessary increased production required by the demands of WWII. This stamped steel model was a huge triumph and operational success for the Soviets, as it’s performance on the battlefield quickly became legendary among Soviet submachine guns, mostly due to the increased portability and controllability over the original PPSh-41 design.

This NFA transferable machine maintains all original Soviet Union / Russian parts and is a Curio and Relic License eligible model. The receiver top plate displays a Cyrillic “C” for the Russian state factory marking from which it was originally produced. These markings are also matched on the grips of this weapon  with a corresponding “C”  inside of an enclosed diamond. The receiver also features the Cyrillic letter markings of “1945r” for production year. The four digit serial number on the bolt does not match the serial number of the receiver.

Overall, this weapon is in excellent functional condition. The internals note only minor wear markings. The bolt face remains crisp and clean. The bore is bright and shiny with crisp, clean rifling. The open bolt action remains smooth in operation, with strong spring tension to the operating rod.  All folding mechanisms, take down controls, and mechanical systems operate smoothly and appropriately.

Cosmetically, the exterior of this weapon notes aging and wear consistent with a used military firearm from 1945.  The finish is still mostly intact, with only minor points of wear noted.  The metalwork has patinaed at various spots, along with minor darkening, however there  is no noted corrosion or degradation of the metalwork at any observed spots.  This model has been test fired and runs flawlessly. Purchase will include two original 35rd box magazines.

The current NFA paperwork indicates the manufacturer of this weapon as “Russian Federation” and the model as “PPS-43”. This model is currently on a Form 3 for fast and easy transfer via eForms.
