Scavenged parts and often fully custom, one of a kind pieces, these home-made weapons were seized by Russian forces.

Some are fully automatic.

Next on the home made menu is CLP/Breakfree, LSA, scotchbrite pads, bluing materials and cleaning kits. :uhh:

Vodka comes first.

That’s actually pretty interesting in the since that the weapons are being produced by less then expert people. I would be very interested to know what level of operational use these weapons are being used in, particularly the single shot .50 cal “looking” rifle.

Look’s like a lot of shade tree building, but the effectiveness of the weapons is intriguing.

I guess necessity is the mother of invention. I wonder if they pack ammo their own as well.

I'm surprised more weapons like this haven't been seen in the US.
The Sten and PPS-43 could made in a garage.

Any more info on these?
I'd like to know more about the one at top left.
Grenade launcher?

Yes, that thing in top left corner is a grenade launcher , for standard 40mm russian grenades. The all of them seem to use typical soviet/russian ammo 9 Mak, 7,62x39, etc.
BTW the MG at the bottom pic seems not to be homemade - rather 12,7 DShK or DShKM HMG
