    Different Russian...picts...mostly chatter, getting acquainted

    This gun has invoked some discussion on a couple of occasions.........keep in mind this a matching numbers gun.

    I never liked the odd "pot-belly" wooden stock that one usually sees on these guns......when this one came up for sale I went with it because of the stock as much as anything else. I had no idea it wasnt a regular run of the mill item....... Form 4 says "Russian Military, WW 2" , model block is marked "DTM".

    First very cool thanks for posting


    It looks like the version they used for tanks or that’s the translation for DTM
    I saw an old photo with Russian tanker cleaning a metal stock version
    The Red Air Force version was tagged the DA
    I found a photo on the web with some Japanese soldiers posing with a metal stock DP 28
    Caption said captured Soviet Equipment
    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

    Interesting to see the finned barrel and a bit more complex bipod than the typical dp28.

    "Fun to shoot......" We have fired it more than once. Seldom shoot "belly-down" any more. The loss of her foot has pretty much stopped that. When we were shooting a lot of belly down, the gun stopped on her & she got up, I cleared the gun, she lay back into shooting position & promptly had a hot empty roll under her left forearm. Had long sleeves on to prevent that but when she stood up, slid the sleeve up & failed to put it back down. Her first ever scar............

    I built a special table for us to shoot from......older picnic table kit. I can think of several ways to improve it now... I have added pivoting wheel-barrow handles under the seat to make rolling it about easier. Have to mow under it.

    Why is it, that the little thin piece of barbed wire is never missed? A friends back yard range looks much like that and we always end up repairing the fence after every shoot.

    Fence....been there & done that.........guests tend to be guilty most of the time...but..we have done it too. In the pict of Donna w/ZB 26, the fence is lying down on the ground, look closely at the left fence post. I put a handle gate just to the right of her aiming point & I always lay the fence on the ground......about 50 ft of it anyway. I have two 16' gates in the wings to replace that section.

    BAR ID:......... this may be the Argentine version, FN mfgr. It had a really short front site, always shot 2' high at 200 ft. I found a taller site in a junk box at a show some time back. I finally installed it.....now shoots to point of aim. It is 7.65x54 Arg........interesting point, it has a tripod.
