The PPSh-2 submachine gun was developed by Georgiy Shpagin in early 1942 under the requirements for a new submachine gun which should be lighter and more compact than the PPSh-41. During the trials, the PPSh-2 lost to the Sudaev PPS-42. No more than 200-250 guns were produced for field trials.
The PPSh-2 is a blowback operated weapon, firing from open bolt, in full automatic mode only. Most parts are made from stamped and formed sheet steel. The submachine guns was fed from double stack detachable box magazines. Early PPSh-2 prototypes featured wooden pistol grip and detachable wooden buttstock, the later version was equipped with retractable stamped steel shoulder stock.
