    That's a PPSH isn't it? I thought I had heard of Korean War Vets refering to it as a burp gun before. That's a pretty cool firearm.

    Yes it appears to be a Russian PPSh-41 7.62 X 25. This weapon was also used in Vietnam.

    It's not a PPSH, not even Russian.

    Many thanks Cosmo.
    I have been looking for a picture of that hybrid Mk2/Mk3 Sten for a long time.
    Much appreciated,
    Pete.

    Hello.
    Could anyone please confirm if the arm with the drum mags pictured in the OP, is the Pietta semiauto copy, as mentioned in the earlier post. If not, can anyone please advise the maker?

    Thank you
    Pete.

    its a sten cross, they had a article about this somewhere , they rotated the bolt 45 deg to accept from the drum which i think was a Soumi not a PPsH drum ,

    i used to be a member on a forum this was posted as a build before getting canned .. ;)

    or o hope its that one

    Hello Jack and thanks for your reply.

    I assumed that the drum mags were Soumi from the distinctive shape of the stick mags in the picture.

    Should you come across any more information on this arm or the forum on which you originally noticed it, I would be greatful to hear of it.

    Thanks again
    Pete.
