Pioneer Arms PPS-43 C 9mm Semi Auto Pistol PPS43 PPS-43C-9MM
Own a recreation of one of the most influential World War 2 firearms in the form of this PPS-43C today! This gun is a fixed stock recreation of the famous Polish PPS-43C, and the craftsmanship shows. It's produced in the same Radon Factory in Poland as it has been for many years.
Original Polish PPS-43C in a semi-auto version. 9mm caliber considered a pistol due to overall length. Comes with two- 30rd mags. The PPS-43C (Pistolet-Pulemet Sudaeva, a 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 submachine 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 the product line of Pioneer Arms in mid-2011 it has consistently been one of their 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.

Very good buy for those interested in WWII and Cold War weaponry in semi-auto. Put about 150 rounds of various types of 9mm. The gun runs great with brass and steel case 115 grain FMJ. Accurate and a blast to shoot at ranges out to even 100 yards. I gave it four stars because the gun has a tendency to jam with flat-nose or hollow point rounds.
Note: The 9mm mags have also been redesigned away from the metal or polymer spacer at the back of the mag that Pioneer Arms used to sell. Instead, they are crimped at the top to alter the original mags for the bottle-necked 7.62x25. Overall, a fun gun to shoot with the right ammo.
Gunprime was excellent and shipped quickly.
The firearms is well made and seems to function well. Gunprime shipped the gun right away. It was in my hand less than a week from order date.
