Brutus' Description

This is one cool cat . 

Original Polish PPS-43C in a semi-auto version.  7.62x25 caliber, considered a pistol due to overall length.  Comes with two 35 round mags.  The PPS-43C (Pistolet-Pulemet Sudaeva, model of 1943 = Sudaev SMG) was born as an answer to the need for a weapon that is more compact and mobile than the PPSh-41, then in use by the Soviet Army.  The PPSh-41 was somewhat too long to be used by tank crews and mobile recon groups and paratroopers, so late in 1941, the Red Army issued a request for a new more compact sub machine gun (SMG).  The designer Sudaev initially designed his new SMG in 1942, and it was adopted under the designation of PPS-42.  The next year he refined the design, and this final model was designated as the PPS-43.  This model was manufactured in significant numbers (nearly two million PPS-43 weapons were manufactured between 1943 and 1946).  The PPS-43 is sometimes referred to as the best SMG of World War II. After WWII, it was widely exported to pro-Soviet regimes around the world, and widely copied.  This historical firearm has been re-designed to shoot from a closed bolt position.  The safety is located at the front of the trigger guard.  The receiver and barrel shroud are made from stamped steel.  The rear sight is an L-shaped flip type and is marked for 100 and 200 meters, the front sight is a fixed blade type.  The barrel is equipped with a simple muzzle brake.  This firearm is an ATF approved pistol.  The stock has no function and is permanently fixed in its folded position. 

Since adding this pistol to our product line in mid 2011 it has consistently been one of our best sellers and has a minimal return rate.  These are extremely reliable.  Be sure to purchase the shooters package with case and extra mags along with this to get the most bang for the buck.  This pistol is manufactured at the famed Radom Plant in Poland. 

All parts and components are new and Polish made.  Sometimes searched as PPS43, PPS43C.

Fantastic gun for the money
Review by pingeorge on 4/1/13
Quality
Guys and Gals if you are looking for a great gun for the money and lots and lots of fun, as shown in my video, get one of these pistols while you still can. You can't go wrong with the great WWII history and the all steel construction of this little nail driver. I have put 1k+ of ammo through this gun and had no issues. Some people have reported failure to eject or fire, but this is mainly due to short cycling or hard primers on the ancient military surplus ammo they were using. I have used all new ammo and the gun works perfectly. I think the guys at Radom and Pioneer have done a great job in bringing this little piece of history to the US civilian market in semi-auto form.

Showing and shooting the Polish PPS-43C pistol from Classic Firearms. This is a great little gun, very well made and an extremely fun shooter. Fires the 7.62X25mm round, readily available commercially and with relatively cheap surplus ammo still available as well. This pistol is still available through Classic Firearms despite high demand for other semi autos at this time:

A lot of fun to shoot!
Review by Azpilot on 6/15/12

Picked up this gun as I'm into older military guns rather than the newer ones. Grabbed some ammo and went to the range. Couldn't be happier with this pistol. At 25 yds easily can put rounds in a 2" circle and its really not much more kick than a 9mm. Gets a lot of looks at the range as well. Many of my friends now want to pick one up!!
excellent price, great deal

I bought this with the shooters package, which was a good value. I've had no negative issues whatsover with this gun or any of its four magazines. It's fun to shoot, just the sight of it would make a bad guy soil his pants, and the price is incredible. Classic Firearms had it to my dealer in 3 days, so you can't beat that.

Narrowing it down
Review by Philip on 5/2/15
Quality
Not a bad weapon as long as it fires most the time, I've narrowed it down to shoot the Winchester 85 Grain and Romanian, Berdan 1980 Production ammo...the other stuff (the ammo that comes in a 72 round box) I got a lot of failure to fire (the firing pin does strike the primer...but don't throw it away, give it a second chance...99.9% of the time it'll fire the second time around...clean it before you try again...but the way I look at it....the weapon should fire whatever ammo you feed it the first time around...so, it's going back to be checked out)...it's pretty acurate too:) I'd still buy it again even I know I'm having a few issues with it....

Review by Chris on 2/22/15

Picked this baby up for $299 a while back. I wanted to wait some time before putting my two cents in. This is a solid shooter for a great price. I hope they get more in eventually because I want another! I will say that with it being a pistol, it is pointless to try and shoot for accuracy. These are more of a fun gun to just blast some ammo away and hit whatever. Very easy to take apart and clean, only a few parts. Also after you give the ATF your $200 and wait some time (after filling out the necessary paperwork), they can be turned into SBR with some straightforward thinking and a little work.

got this gun for my birthday but didn't get to fire it until last weekend. by fire it i mean it fired one round, and then light striked 10 rounds in a row without igniting the primers. if it was one or 2 rounds i would have blamed the ammo. but the same ammo worked perfectly in my tokarev pistol. ill have to disassemble and investigate what might have gone wrong. i like everything else about the gun and Classic firearms ships orders out really fast. maybe i got the only bad one. all the other reviews are good.

Gonna buy the 9mm one now too
Review by Oly on 2/1/15

I was hesitant at first to buy this, and I don't regret it now since I got it....it was in way better shape than I expected. Haven't had a chance to fire it yet due to I was coming home from the vet (had the cat in the car with me). Mags all looked like new, I asked why the stock was welded closed (I didn't know, but this will be a FYI for those who still don't know), if it wasn't welded closed, we all would have to get a Class 3 permit to own a PPS43-c because then it would be considered a short barreled rifle...we are buying them as pistols...I'll be taken it out to the desert this next coming weekend to fire it.....and b-4 the day is out, going to buy the 9mm and do a report comparing the 9mm vs 7.62 x 25. Dealing with Classic Firearms was a pleasure, and once they get their lay away working, there's a very good chance I'll be dealing with them some more (it's easier for me to make payments than paying all at once...it be nice to have the option).

Ordered the 7.62 x25 PPS-43C about 10 days ago, once the credit card said I had the cash, it started its journey (I think it was Monday the 26th) it arrived on Friday the 30th but now I have to wait for the FFL. I just wish I knew that there was a 9mm PPS-43C earlier, would've bought that instead...AND that these guys (Classic Firearms) had a Lay Away plan so I could make payments on the 9mm PPS-43C I want to buy now (reason for the 4 stars and I was informed they are working on setting up Lay away)....but any who...I think I'll go ahead and order the 9mm one (before they run outta stock), transfer the cash outta Savings......me thinks, It's better to ask for forgiveness than permission from the boss lady....lol:) More to come once I fire them....

I bought this for an SBR project. I've put several hundred rounds through it already (while I wait for paperwork to go through), and it functions flawlessly. I haven't had a single failure to fire or feed, no jams, no problems at all. The magazines fit snugly, with no wobble at all - yet slide in easily. Cleaning it is a breeze, as it disassembles into only 3 major pieces (as far as it needs to come apart for cleaning). Sights were right on. Overall, I am extremely pleased with this gun.
Great gun, buy it!
Review by Zak on 12/14/14

I've been watching this gun on Classic Firearms for a long time, and finally took the plunge. I'm really glad I did - it's fantastic! The gun has a very high quality build and finish, and comes packed nicely and heavily oiled. Machining is sharp and tight, no rough marks or poor fit anywhere. The magazines were also oiled and appear to be new. I cleaned it up, took it to the range, and it was absolutely perfect shooting Red Army steel case ammo. No failures of any kind, and it feels great to fire. The recoil has a satisfying, big gun feel, but there's really no kick at all. To my surprise, it's pretty accurate, too. I was consistently shooting 5" groups at 30 yards without really aiming, just point and shoot. The gun BEGS to be rapid-fired, and it's easy to control even when you let it rip. If the stock could extend, I think it could be quite accurate out to 100 yards. Speaking of, I love the gun so much that I doing the SBR paperwork and I'm studying how to do the stock conversion. I bought a parts kit from another site and can't wait to do it. This is a very high-quality historical piece that's super fun to shoot. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
Excellent, Outstanding Service, Classic is Classic

Straight out of the box, 3 extra mags in the pouch, load up and dump. Not one hiccup. If you were thinking about getting one of these, stop thinking and do it. You won't be sorry. I should have gotten mine long ago. I am glad I get it now, before there are no more. This transaction was super A+ all the way. Thank you Classic Firearms for another great deal.
Nice pistol but what took so long?
Review by Onefunzr2 on 12/12/14

I've only sent a few Wolf hollowpoint rounds downrange, but no FTF, FTE. If it swallows hollowpoints it surely will feed round nose FMJ's with no problem. It was everything every previous owner said it would be. I'm more than pleased with the quality.

Lots of reviews made mention of quick delivery. I ordered 12/2. Gun was picked 12/3. Then someone sat on it until 12/9 when it was 'ready for UPS.' That's what I'm peeved about.
FUN

Looked forward to this purchase , enjoy shooting it. Works without issue. Gets dirty with the surplus ammo, but to be expected. Get a few light hits with the surplus, but that too is expected. Still great to shoot!!
Don't wait. Order this gun!!!!!!
Review by Mike on 11/13/14
Quality
Another great purchase from Classic Firearms. If you are on the fence about this gun, then get off and order it. Just picked up my PPS 43c from FFL today and took it straight to the range. I ran a bore snake down the barrel wiped off some oil with a rag and started sending lead down range. This gun ate up my Red Army ammo(also purchased from Classic) with ZERO issues. I used 7 different mags without a single problem. The finish is better than I expected and this gun is built like a tank. Very easy gun to take down and clean. This gun is really fun to shoot. I know that the cheap surplus ammo is dried up, but there is now new production ammo which is comparable to the cost .40 cal. so there is no excuse not to purchase this gun. Thanks Classic for another great gun at a great price.
EXACTLY what I had hoped to find when I opened the box.

PPS-43C

Wow! I wasn't quite sure what to expect when this arrived, but upon opening the box I was definitely pleased. This "pistol" is solid, simple, and harkens back to WWII and cold war times. While the stamping and machining of parts is crude in that it displays the marks of it's manufacture, the PPS43C is nicely finished and looks EXACTLY as one would expect. The action cycles smoothly and the appearance of this firearm is well....wicked cool!

I really don't think that someone could add a more unique and nostalgic piece for a more reasonable price. There should be zero reason to hesitate on this one. As said in another review- GET IT!

No failures of any kind, and it feels great to fire. The recoil has a satisfying, big gun feel, but there's really no kick at all. To my surprise, it's pretty accurate, too. I was consistently shooting 5" groups at 30 yards without really aiming, just point and shoot. The gun BEGS to be rapid-fired, and it's easy to control even when you let it rip. If the stock could extend, I think it could be quite accurate out to 100 yards. Speaking of, I love the gun so much that I doing the SBR paperwork and I'm studying how to do the stock conversion. I bought a parts kit from another site and can't wait to do it. This is a very high-quality historical piece that's super fun to shoot. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

    Straight out of the box, 3 extra mags in the pouch, load up and dump. Not one hiccup. If you were thinking about getting one of these, stop thinking and do it. You won't be sorry. I should have gotten mine long ago. I am glad I get it now, before there are no more. This transaction was super A+ all the way. Thank you Classic Firearms for another great deal.
    Nice pistol but what took so long?

    I've only sent a few Wolf hollowpoint rounds downrange, but no FTF, FTE. If it swallows hollowpoints it surely will feed round nose FMJ's with no problem. It was everything every previous owner said it would be. I'm more than pleased with the quality.

    Lots of reviews made mention of quick delivery. I ordered 12/2. Gun was picked 12/3. Then someone sat on it until 12/9 when it was 'ready for UPS.' That's what I'm peeved about.
    FUN

    Looked forward to this purchase , enjoy shooting it. Works without issue. Gets dirty with the surplus ammo, but to be expected. Get a few light hits with the surplus, but that too is expected. Still great to shoot!!
    Don't wait. Order this gun!!!!!!

    Another great purchase from Classic Firearms. If you are on the fence about this gun, then get off and order it. Just picked up my PPS 43c from FFL today and took it straight to the range. I ran a bore snake down the barrel wiped off some oil with a rag and started sending lead down range. This gun ate up my Red Army ammo(also purchased from Classic) with ZERO issues. I used 7 different mags without a single problem. The finish is better than I expected and this gun is built like a tank. Very easy gun to take down and clean. This gun is really fun to shoot. I know that the cheap surplus ammo is dried up, but there is now new production ammo which is comparable to the cost .40 cal. so there is no excuse not to purchase this gun. Thanks Classic for another great gun at a great price.
    EXACTLY what I had hoped to find when I opened the box.

    PPS-43C

    Wow! I wasn't quite sure what to expect when this arrived, but upon opening the box I was definitely pleased. This "pistol" is solid, simple, and harkens back to WWII and cold war times. While the stamping and machining of parts is crude in that it displays the marks of it's manufacture, the PPS43C is nicely finished and looks EXACTLY as one would expect. The action cycles smoothly and the appearance of this firearm is well....wicked cool!

    I really don't think that someone could add a more unique and nostalgic piece for a more reasonable price. There should be zero reason to hesitate on this one. As said in another review- GET IT!
