The Rusian Degtyaryov DP-28 machine gun (Degtyaryov's infantry machine gun) is a light machine gun firing the 7.62×54mmR cartridge that was used primarily by the Soviet Union starting in 1928. The DP had a reputation as an effective light support weapon. It was nicknamed the "Record player" (proigryvatel) by Red Army troops because the disc-shaped pan magazine resembled a gramophone record and its top cover revolved while the weapon was fired. Many were captured by the Finnish army in the Winter War and the Continuation War. After WW2 the Chinese Communists used the DP in the Korean War and copied the DPM as the Type 53. A number of the RP-46 variant of the DP have been spotted in present day Somalia, in use with militant forces and also among rebel forces in the 2011 Libyan uprising to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi. This is an excellent WW2 1943 dated Russian DP-28. It has all original undamaged wood and metal work. It is complete with original tripod and 47 round pan magazine. It is fitted with sling swivels and has an adjustable rear sight and cone muzzle flash eliminator. The metal is nicely marked with '1943' date together with other numbers and inspection marks. The weapon comes with an original green canvas tool carrier with flap cover, wood toggle faatener and shoulder strap. The carrier has internal open top pockets which contain selection of steel MG 53 tools. Price includes deactivation certificate and UK delivery. Sn 10017:11
