    A Few 7.62X54R Firearms

    Had not done any displays for some time now. Weather cold and cloudy so did not haul out any accessories, just the guns.

    Most of these you will know, the rifle on the far right is a M91 Westinghouse dated 1915. Finnish capture with Finnish splice stock.

    That's a very nice looking group Buck! What's the one with the flying saucer mag, and how many rounds does it hold?

    DP28 - pancake drum holds 47 rounds.

    Outstanding collection and the 'record player' is the coolest of the group

    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    DP28's are beautiful guns to look at.

    quite a conversation piece. & they are very loud for a 54R. for some reason that flash hider seems to amplify the sound of it.

    They put some steel in those DP28, plus a substantial barrel. They are not light weight. The revolving pancake (record player) drum fascinates people.

    BS,

    yes they did.... & the other thing was how they taught the women & kids to load those drums... LMAO...

    depending on how many of those you got, some will have a big loop instead of a small tab that you pull to rotate the drum.

    the Russians taught the women & kids to load those drums WITH THEIR TOES! YES. im serious.


    you stick your TOE into that loop while holding the drum your other hand & rotate it while taking your free hand & sticking the rounds in it. this is no joke, they really taught them to do it that way.

    once you have loaded these a few times you will see why that was and advantage vs trying to hold it, keep it rotated & stick the rounds in. obviously you can do it.... but it is a challenge until you get a system down that works for you. i had been doing them by hand & a guy at a shoot asked if i knew how to foot load them....

    of course i thought he was messing with me until i looked it up.

    now the downside of this is if you are in russia & its 30 below & have to load a drum with your toe.... might be a 1 time deal for you when your toe comes off.

    LMAO there ya go my friend... your entertaining old news for today.
    say what you mean & mean what you say!

    That is strange! Loading a mag with your toes. Inconvenient at best! Lol
