    Well there's something you dont everyday James,the barrell and mag looks correct but as for the rest I havn't a clue unless these are early pro-types,period pictures dont lie so they are deffo real enough,cant wait for someone to clarify...............Jake.

    You are most welcome James, happy to have been of some help. I agree, that is a excellent website, and has been a favorite small arms site of mine for quite some time.

    Yesterday I had the very rare pleasure of getting to play with one of only a couple of PPD40's in the UK, care of the British Army. It is in full working order.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yep PPD 40. I stupidly passed one up for $3K 12 years ago because of a $200 difference in what I was offering. Dumb, dumb,dumb!!!!
