Default Polish RPD from DSA

I had been wanting one of these for awhile but the first efforts at making these in semiautomatic had teething issues. Supposedly a redesign fixed all of that a few years back.

Anyways what we have here is a DSA semi auto version of the RPD light machine gun. Caliber is the original 7.62X39mm. This one is built using a Polish gun made in 1959. The weather has been lousy so I have not shot it yet, but will hopefully have the chance later this week.

Got a break in the weather this afternoon. Put a 50 round belt through her with no issues. Shot a few inches high but I was only shooting her about 60 yards. Sweet beast! Ordered an additional drum and a couple more 50 round belts.

Damn, even in semi auto, you could lay down some fire with that!

Since buying the farm a few years back, we don't hear much from neighbors. I love the freedom that comes with that.

Your lucky, I live in "Suburbia", and it sucks nuts. My wife's idea...she likes having people around, me not so much. I belong to a decent conservation club to do most of my shooting, and there is an indoor range about 15 minutes away, but I am not much for indoor shooting.
