    Yes, Terry, the LWC as it is known nowadays. The School of Infantry as it was known back in the day.

    Hi James, thanks. All the kit is original.

    The drum is very simliar in looks, but it is not the same. It has a small extension, which is not on the PPSh41 mag, which goes into the reciever. Same round of course.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The PPSh41 with the drum mag was '41 dated and had the hard to find early adjustable sight. The other with the 35 round stick was actually a Chinese Type 50. We had it out just to illustrate the two different feed systems.

    Here is a somewhat lousy pic I took of it.

    One of my biggest regrets. Sad and dumb.
