A variant of the DP-27 infantry machine gun, the DTM was equipped for use on armored fighting vehicles as a mounted or coaxial gun, with altered sights, a different barrel profile and magazine shape and an integrated mounting collar at the front of the receiver. The front sight is absent, with an adjustable peep sight and raised optic mounting collar on the receiver, elevated to clear the drum magazine. The magazine has a smaller diameter and a greater height than the standard DP, though installs on the receiver in much the same way. A pair of ribbed pistol grips are installed, as well as a 10-position telescoping buttstock with canvas pad and metal shoulder rest.
Fine as deactivated, with 40% of the arsenal blue finish, showing areas of brown and gray patina, mild scuffing and general wear. A few welded repairs are visible at the rear of the trigger housing, in the vicinity of the locking hardware for the buttstock. The grips show mild wear and scuffing, and the pad is stained and torn but still generally solid. The deactivation has been performed by welding the breech closed, but the bolt is still mobile and has not been welded over on the face. NOTE: This is a registered DEWAT weapon with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), as a National Firearms Act (NFA) weapon, that is fully transferable. It has been classified as a Curio or Relic as defined in 27 CFR, 478.11. These weapons are still subject to the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.
