Eastern front, redux: Pitting the German MP40 against the Soviet PPSH (VIDEO)

Breaking a pair of WWII classic submachine guns out for some range time makes for a blast and some interesting observations.

In the above video from Russia’s Kalashnikov Concern (no bias, right?) Vladimir Onokoy pits the Red Army’s PPSh-41 design (“pe-pe-sha,” as he pronounces it) of Georgy Shpagin against the Wermacht’s Maschinenpistole 40 design by Heinrich Vollmer. After a bit of background, Onokoy lights them up with some accuracy, penetration and controllability tests.

Is it good footage of some iconic sub guns? Absolutely. Is it a surprising outcome? You be the judge.
