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. 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 a near mint WW2 1944 dated Russian DP-28. It has all original wood and metal work which retains its original finish. It is complete with original bi-pod and removable 47 round pan magazine (the rear sight block is pulled to the rear to release the magazine). It has sling swivels, an adjustable tangent rear sight winged fore sight and cone muzzle flash eliminator. The metal is nicely marked with '1944' date together with number ‘HN786’ double stamped. It has a 24” barrel and measures 49 ½” overall. Deactivated to UK specification in 2015 the weapon cocks and dry fires crisply and its grip safety catch works as it should. The price includes UK/EU deactivation certificate and UK delivery. Sn 18673:6
