Hey guys, recently acquired this rifle and I have no idea what it is.

I've attached a photo of the markings, hopefully someone will recognise it.

Found this in a Gunboards collectors site

The gear with the bow and arrow is the ordnance department stamp. The star indicates Arsenal 1. The 3 characters read Zhong Zheng Shi, usually translated as Chiang Kai Shek Type. The numbers at the bottom show it was made in October, 1945.

Fantastic info so far! I'll get some more photos as I can't for the life of me work out what Airsoft manufacturer made this rifle.


As it may help me find mags.


It's a gas bolt action but because I couldn't work out the model it's made it hard to search

It appears as though it may be the PPS Type 24 rifle

Nice gun, I think its  PPs 43, the Soviet Union makes good guns during the time, these guns were simple and easy to take care..
