"The PPS 43-C (Pistolet-Pulemet Sudaeva, model of 1943; Sudaev SMG) was born as an answer to the need for a firearm that was more compact and easily handled than the PPSh-41, then in use by the Soviet Army. The PPSh-41 was somewhat too long to be used by tank crews, mobile recon groups, and paratroopers so late in 1941 the Red Army issued a request for a new, more compact sub-machine gun (SMG). The designer, Sudaev, initially designed his new SMG in 1942, and it was adopted under the designation of PPS-42. The next year he refined the design, and this final model was designated as the PPS-43. This model was manufactured in significant numbers (nearly two million PPS-43's were manufactured between 1943 and 1946). The PPS-43 is sometimes referred to as 'the best SMG of World War II'. After WWII, it was widely exported to pro-Soviet regimes around the world, and was widely copied.
"I.O., Inc. re-designed this historical firearm to shoot from a closed-bolt position. The safety is located at the front of the triggerguard. The receiver and barrel shroud are made from stamped steel. The rear sight is an L-shaped flip-type and is marked for 100 and 200 meters; the front sight is a fixed blade type. The barrel is equipped with a simple muzzle brake. This firearm is a BATF-approved pistol. The stock has no function, and is permanently fixed in its folded position." (From I.O., Inc.)
