Pictures of the new airsoft PpSh that is going to be released around mid January. Made from wood and steel the company making them has a good reputation in the airsoft community for quailty goods. I am going to place an initial order for 20 units, already getting a good response from the WWII airsoft guys. Price will be around £200, still to be confirmed. It has already been pointed out you can get a deac cheaper but this is another welcome addition to the WWII airsoft arsenal. It should also open things up for an Ost Front event.

Citizen, how can you mention Vyatsky Polyany's finest in the same breath as some plumbing?

Seen this on another forum. I love the way the demonstrator makes such a mess out of moving the selector switch. (I'd fail him on a WHT!) Same manufacturer? Or are they all suddenly jumping on the bandwagon when they should have made a PPSh41 years ago?

The difficulty all the way along with making these has always been the barrel shroud. Its not round and its not square.

On this replica it looks very, very thin metal... I think thats gonna bust in half soon as look at it.

Finally got a look at the pictures last night (the firewall at work stops them). While i appreciate that you can't tell much from a picture I'm not sure that KomStezh would authorise these for LH use they just look too much like a toy gun.

As Andrei says the metal looks too thin. The test for robustness is can you open a bottle of beer using the barrel shroud.

Heh... I suspect you might well be able to open a bottle of beer with it... I'll have to give it a go.

You can also sit on it... though I notice its actually the mag that's at risk of being damaged when you do that, not the gun!

Same on the real ones. The mag front plate gets squashed down. It's a good party trick but we don't recommend it as a habit. :wink:

The Hexagon Productions PPSh41 does indeed make a sturdy novelty bottle opener and seat. But I wouldn't recommend the use as a seat if you wish to fire BB's, as the system has been noted for feeding problems.

The feeding issue does not have anything to so with the use as a seat. It's all internal to the mag and can be fixed. If anyone needs to know how then there is a video on youtube showing the process. Later mags don't have the problem.

However using it as a seat will bend the thin metal casing of the mag and risks cracking the stock... interestingly both are potential issues of doing the same with the real steel!
