Russian 1943 Pps43 Sub Machine Gun- 9mm- Live Firing

The PPS is an automatic blowback-operated weapon that fires from an open bolt. The PPS 43 was created in response to a Red Army requirement for a compact and lightweight weapon with similar accuracy and projectile energy to the Soviet PPSh-41 submachine gun widely deployed at the time, with reduced rate of fire, produced at lower material cost and requiring fewer man-hours, particularly skilled labour. The PPS and its variants were used extensively by the Red Army during World War II and were later adopted by the armed forces of several countries of the former Warsaw Pact as well as its many African and Asian allies.

The Soviet PPS 43 submachine guns was developed by Alexei Sudayev. Chambered to 7.62×25mm Tokarev, firing from an open bolt.
