The PPSH-41 was designed by the russian Georgi Sjpagin as a cheap alternative for the PPD-40. One of the main cost saving aspects of this rifle was the total lack of screws, bolts and nuts. The production started mid 1941 and by the end of the war more than 6 million were made. After the war they were used untill far in the sixties by russian soldiers. Up to this day the PPSH-41 is used by insurgents, criminals and other irregular groups.
