This was my first serious gun I made for my son and the first on his list of many. The PPsh-41 is a WWII Russian machine which many people mistake for a Tommy gun because of the barrel clip.
I made this gun out of Redwood 2x4s since it was the dryest lumber I could find. The trigger guard and rear site are metal. I painted the 'metal' parts of the gun but regretted doing that since it hid the grain.
