Degtyaryov DP28 – Semi-Auto Versions For Sale in US

    Degtyaryov DP28

    Semi-automatic versions of the Degtyaryov DP28 machine gun are being sold in the United States through AIM Surplus.  The DP28 MG was used by the Soviet Union during World War II and beyond.

    It used record-like, 47-round magazines.  Due to the shap of the magazines, the gun was nicknamed the “proigryvatel” or “record player.”  These rifles, like the original machine guns, are chambered in 7.62x54r, which was the cartridge used in the Mosin-Nagant rifles.

    The guns are assembled from parts by Wise Lite Arms and use a 1953-marked semi-automatic receiver.  Included with the rifle are four of the round magazines and a carrying pouch that holds three mags.  Total price is a hair under $4,500.  These do not appear to be C&R eligible.
