Description:

Manufactured as a semi-automatic version of the RP-46 light machine gun using new manufacture and surplus parts. The RP-46 is a post-World War II derivative of the DP family of machine guns which used a belt feed system mounted in place of the DP's instantly recognizable "dinner plate" magazine. These machine guns were used by countries across the eastern bloc up until the PK family of machine guns was released. This rifle features a conical flash hider, post front and elevation adjustable rear sights, an integral bipod mounted to the heat shield, belt feed system attached via the magazine latch, serrated pistol grip, and smooth buttstock with integral oiler. The right side of the receiver is marked with the Smith Manufacturing Group nomenclature as well as having the address on the inside of the feed tray cover. Includes three metal ammunition cans containing unloaded belts, a belt loading tool, and Plano hard case.

Rating Definition:

Excellent as built by Smith Manufacturing group, retaining 99% plus refinished blue finish with limited handling marks, a couple spots of light pitting under the finish, and a few light dings and scratches. Wood is very good with handling marks, some staining, and chipping at the heel. Mechanically excellent. Accessories are very fine with storage and handling marks.
