Russian WWII DP 28 Display Machine Gun
Original Item: Only One Available. In actual fact, this is a Polish DPM 7.62 x 54R machine gun that was a nearly identical successor of the Russian WWII DP 28, in fact it uses the Russian DP 28 pan magazine.
The 7.62 mm Ruchnoy Pulemyot DP (Degtyaryova pakhotnyi) was adopted by the Soviet army in 1928. It is extremely simple, yet remarkably reliable and robust. It remained the standard light gun until the 50's, and large numbers of them were used by the North Korean and Chinese Communists in the Korean war. The secret of the DP was the simple locking device, which makes use of locking flaps on the bolt, pushed out by the firing pin. The DP proved resistant to dust and dirt, and free from any serious vices.
This display gun is constructed of all original parts on a totally inert receiver; it is fully approved by the BATF and can be purchased without a license.
This is a chance to add a hard to find DP 28 style gun to your WWII collection.
