PPS/50

PPS copies, as with most military copies, have been made and/or imported by more than one company. Some are much better than others. Most of their parts seem to interchange pretty well, some perfectly. The photos and notes at the bottom of the page will help you tell some of them apart. It appears that Mitchell has imported both types of copies, so examination of Mitchell types is important if quality matters to you. Here are some of the brands, importers, and models:

LETTER FROM AZTEC INTERNATIONAL:

My import company, Aztec International Inc of Ocala Florida has just purchased the remaining stock of pre ban PPS-50 rifles (not the cheap Squires Bingham guns but the original PPS-50 that takes the 30 shot stick mags and the 50 round drums as originally produced in Italy by Pietta for my previous company, Bingham Ltd of Atlanta GA) from the original manufacturer as the tooling has been scrapped and the gun is now out of production. Included are brand new pre ban 30 round stick magazines and 50 round drums and original loading tools for the drums. These will be listed on our website: aztecguns.com as they arrive and are photographed, etc. There is a very limited quantity available (less than 250 guns). We expect delivery by the first part of November.

Buying or Selling?
If you're looking to buy or sell one of these type rifles, they're usually easy to find on GunsAmerica.com and other sites. There are many dealers out there who have the Armscor types. The Armi-Jager / Mitchell types are much harder to find.
