    Default PPSh-41 drum magazine + magazine pouch

    Hey Guys,

    I bid on this a won it - for it was a fair price (27 EU for the set)...
    I don't have too much knowledge on Soviet gear, could these be WW2 era?

    Seller's pics for now - I might be receiving them tomorrow...I'll update with markings then.

    THX,
    Fabe

    ok, this might be Hungarian made (late 1940s), which would be the best news for me, since I do collect "cold-war" Hungarian stuff... (on pic. 2 - there is a small logo on the magazine, which looks to be Hungarian - well...I'll know more tomorrow.

    UPDATE:
    As suspected...An unissued Hungarian made (late 1940s) drum magazine.

    A friend of mine who used to live in my parts had a Polish made PPSH 41 and that badboy would rat ta tat till the drum was empty. Even though it was my first Papashaw I had ever shot, You tend to run out of thing to shoot with a 72 round drum, But during the War I'm sure that would not have been a problem!!!!

    THX for the input everyone... this is an old thread of mine.
    I still have this drum - I sold the pouch and sling (to be honest, they were not in very good condition).

    I do have a technical question, since I know nothing about weapons:

    When I received this drum, the spring was (and still is) in a "wound up" position (not sure how to describe it, so I'll make a photo).
    My question; how do I "un-wind" the spring?

    ( It looks dangerous to get my fingers in there )

    The spring is released by pressing the middle release button on the other side, whilst holding the cross piece on the inside. There is a youtube video about this at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z46xDjebFk4
