Firing the Historical PPSh-41 Burp Gun

ppsh-41 burp gun

The PPSh-41 Burp Gun is a submachine gun rich with history.

This close-combat, Russian weapon was devastating to the Germans in WWII.

Watch as Ian from Forgotten Weapons gets range time with this one-of-a-kind firearm:

The Russian PPSh-41 was known to many as the "Burp Gun" due to the sound it made when fired. With an incredibly high cycling rate of around 1,000 rounds per minute, this submachine gun is incredible. It can fire from a stick magazine that holds 35 rounds or a drum magazine that holds 71 rounds. The light, recoiling cartridge allows for very controllable firing despite the high rate of fire.

We'd like to give a special thanks to Ian from Forgotten Weapons for sharing!
