Polish PPS-43C Pistol 9mm Variation with two - 35rd mag - $299.99


Looks like fun to me, Brutus' Description, This is one cool cat . Original Polish PPS-43C in a semi-auto version. 9mm caliber, considered a pistol due to overall length. Comes with two - 35rd mags. The PPS-43C (Pistolet-Pulemet Sudaeva, model of 1943 = Sudaev SMG) was born as an answer to the need for a weapon that is more compact and mobile than the PPSh-41, then in use by the Soviet Army. The PPSh-41 was somewhat too long to be used by tank crews and mobile recon groups and paratroopers, so late in 1941, the Red Army issued a request for a new more compact sub machine gun (SMG). The designer Sudaev initially designed his new SMG in 1942, and it was adopted under the designation of PPS-42. The next year he refined the design, and this final model was designated as the PPS-43. This model was manufactured in significant numbers (nearly two million PPS-43 weapons were manufactured between 1943 and 1946). The PPS-43 is sometimes referred to as the best SMG of World War II. After WWII, it was widely exported to pro-Soviet regimes around the world, and widely copied. This historical firearm has been re-designed to shoot from a closed bolt position. The safety is located at the front of the trigger guard. The receiver and barrel shroud are made from stamped steel. The rear sight is an L-shaped flip type and is marked for 100 and 200 meters, the front sight is a fixed blade type. The barrel is equipped with a simple muzzle brake. This firearm is an ATF approved pistol. The stock has no function and is permanently fixed in its folded position.

Since adding this pistol to our product line in mid 2011 it has consistently been one of our best sellers and has a minimal return rate. This pistol in the 9mm alternative can only make it more popular. This pistol is manufactured at the famed Radom Plant in Poland.

All parts and components are new and Polish made.

Again, The folding stock is not functional. The mechanism is disabled and it has been welded in place.

Cannot be sold to California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, or Hawaii due to State Law Firearm Restrictions.

I bought one of these in

I bought one of these in 7.62x25 from Classic Firearms a few months back. Very fun to shoot, but I wished I had gotten the 9mm version sometimes because of ammo price. Now that Classic has the 9mm version for $299, I don't think I can resist. I'm down for another one.

(BTW, I don't care for the 25-inch bag they sell separately as a shooter kit. I got one, but it fits my Yugo M92 PAP AK-47 better, so I swapped bags with it. I had a Roma GNA 30 for it and the 30-inch fits the PPS-43C better. The 25-incher is REALLy tight for the PPS.)

The newer version shipping

The newer version shipping now has a hole in the top of the receiver that is smaller than the release button. The top of the release button is also turned down. Enough of the release button still protrudes through the top of the receiver but it is not functional because it cannot obviously push through the smaller hole in the top of receiver preventing the stock from releasing.

I've read it also does not

I've read it also does not include the spring to release the stock. It is NOT welded, as some say, as far as I can determine.

I got one in 9mm about 5 mos

I got one in 9mm about 5 mos ago. Range toy is fun but has issues. Ejection issues- some spent casings not exiting, piling up in reciever. Maybe it's me but mine also does what seems to be a 2 rd burst occasionally,which I'm diggin. Could be trigger issue? Could be operator issue. I like the weapon, paid 399, and hopeful W/time and ammo selection I can find what it really likes. Been a while since I fired it, maybe it needs steel cased. Planning some range trips soon with it for troubleshooting. Mine came with 2-35rd mags. one seems to have issues, but have seen reports the 7.62 mags(available and inexpensive) will run 9mm just fine.

I ran my 9mm with 7.62 mags

I ran my 9mm with 7.62 mags and it worked fine. One glitched with just a few rounds left in it. I attributed that to just what it is, a surplus mag with a worn spring.

You can get this in 9MM from

You can get this in 9MM from Royal Tiger for $299.. No reason for the markup over the 7.62 version.


I like Classic, but they are higher on that, and the VZ2008 they are higher by $100 versus PSA.

I bought mine through Royal

I bought mine through Royal too and just test fired it this past weekend. I also just finished filling out my SBR form 1 application.
I had this in 7.62 but broomed it when the cheap surplus ammo dried up.

Glad to see this in 9mm. Should be a hell of lot cheaper to blast away at rocks, bottles, and other evil junque at the tin-can alley range... Sweet!
