The World War II-era PPSh-41 was a symbol of Russian resistance to the Nazi invasion. It's an iconic firearm, well steeped in history—and also a select-fire submachine-gun capable of full-automatic fire. That makes it a Class III firearm, so examples are subject to legal restrictions on sale, ownership and transport—not to mention quite expensive.

Such legal and financial burdens would make a semi-automatic rimfire replica carbine an attractive alternative—it would be both inexpensive to own and shoot. Now fans of the PPSh-41 are in luck as such a gun, the PPS50/22, is made in Italy by Pietta, and currently imported by Mitchell’s Mausers.
