I can almost smell the corrosive ammo!
Buy them both and you do!
Having fired both, I would take the MP40 over the PPSh41.
Never shot either but would imagine MP 40 would be more accurate but the PPSh41 would be more fun, unless you are German
I would love to have either of them, one of my bucket list objectives is to go to Knob Creek and shoot several of the WW2 full auto guns, the MG42 and the US Mini Gun are at the top of my list but the list is very long, I mean who doesn’t want to shoot an M2 .50 at some point in their life?
I've shot a few mp40s and I love them. The cyclic rate is perfect in my opinion and is very controllable. Had I done a few things differently in the last few years I could have bought one. It was my plan at one time. I messed that up. I haven't had a chance to shoot a PPSh.
MP40s are controllable, easy to squeeze single shots off, easier to get cheap ammo and more ergonomic and compact. The PPSh 41 while it has a fixed wooden stock (no wobble), drums have to be hand fitted to each gun (slowed production done during WWII), drums are finicky and slow to reload. Supposed work better with PPSh43 stick mags better and they don't interfer with your support arm during shooting. Never found any of the stick mags only drums in Iraq.
Work on the Miniguns daily. This gunner fires a 4 sec burst (50rds a sec= 200 rds)
That is ridiculously bad ass man!!
Is it wrong that I want to try to cut a car in half with a mini gun or the .50 Gatling gun? I would have to have access to free ammo of course because there’s no way I could afford that much ammo lmao!!
This video always makes me wish I am WAY cooler than I think I am and rich enough to be able to do something like this.
Tarowah, The .50 gatling is the GAU-19, had three of them in Kuwait end of 14' before 5th SFGA took them home. The only way I can afford to shoot these guns is by writing that blank check to Uncle Sam and now contracting for them. That video you posted was done by Dillion Aero out in AZ. They rebuilt the old VietNam era M134 guns to be more reliable. The other half of the building is Dillion Reloading Corp, makers of my Dillion 550B reloading press!
Those sound like the same arguments against the 1928 Thompson's drum magazines, or the P08's for that matter. In fact, correct me if I am wrong but isn't the magazine in the PPSh 41 closer to the trigger than in the Thompson's?
Thompson is just in front of the trigger guard. There's a distance on the PPSh41.. The 1927 did have a vertical foregrip where the 1928 had a horizonal forearm.
