Developed in the 1920s, the DP-27 was the Soviet Union's go-to light machine gun for World War II, seeing use as both an infantry weapon and secondary armament for armored fighting vehicles. This example has a number of original components assembled on an inert aluminum frame, with post front and tangent rear sights, a folding bipod on the metal heat shield, and a "club foot" pattern stock with integral cleaning tool. One "platter" magazine is included.

Rating Definition:

The receiver is a smooth black finish with some bright edge wear and handling marks. The vintage components show a mixed brown and gray patina, with scattered spotting and wear. The buttstock is rough, with cracks and chips. Not a complete parts kit.
