Soviet PPSH Manufacturers Markings Chart


Recommended Posts

  • 6 years later...

Ive seen a Ppsh with a little horse head symbol on the receiver. Has anyone seen that before and/or can shed some light on its origin? Thank you!

 

I looked on a Russian language forum I frequent and could not find any thing that matched your description, do you have a photo?

No thats it. Just an interesting stamp that Ive googled but come up empty.

 

Thanks. I did send it to a friend of mine in St. Petersburg who is a collector and writer, he was not familiar with the marking. He was asking for additional photos in an attempt to narrow the search down.

Any chance that this is an importer's mark? I have a very similar marking on the barrel of a Siamese Mauser which was re-barreled in .45-70. I believe it was done by Navy Arms.

 

Here's the barrel marking. Similar but not the same

A friend had one years ago but not sure if his was marked like that or not. I do have an original magazine adapter but that is all I ever found. Always wondered how the barrels looked and how they were marked? Thanks for the above info

The D in the above document was used to mark PPSHs reissued in their original caliber with the designation of MP717 ( r ). MP41( r ) was the designation for one converted to 9mm. How those were marked I have yet to find out but I am working on it.

Any chance I could impose on you for as many pictures of the original as possible.....and perhaps even the loan so I can make accurate measurements. I intend to reproduce these and would like to make them as accurately  as possible. All I have been able to inspect have been reproductions. if not tied to a gun and if you are interested....I'd love to discuss a purchase?
