Overall, this gun rates in about excellent condition.
Mechanics: The action functions smoothly and correctly, although we have not test-fired this gun.

Our Assessment: What a neat rifle! This is the first thing people say upon seeing this nifty little carbine. This model was styled after the legendary Russian PPSh 43 submachine gun, and looks every bit the part. From the distinctive perforated barrel to the round ammunition drums and wood stock, you can recognize the WWII gun legacy instantly. You won’t see many of these, they haven’t been produced since 1986, and you will seldom see one in this condition. Whether as a looker or a plinker, this handy little carbine is sure to make a very happy owner this Christmas.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This gun can be transferred in California. The high capacity magazines will NOT be provided to a California buyer or to a buyer from any state which limits magazine capacity
