ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 4.5mm Steel BB Full Auto Fun

Yes! More Full Auto Fun Videos on the way and to kick of this week I shoot my ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 Full Auto BB Gun. If you're not aware of the background on this very hard to get ahold of Airgun, I bought it new from another collector and imported it into Canada. I Paid an arm and a leg for it because the Tyrex PPA-K-01 is really hard to find here in Canada and the US, new or used.

The ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 is a super close copy of the Kedr PP-91 (9 x 18 mm Makarov), also made in the same Russian ZMZ factory. So like my Baikal Makarov, the BB version and real steel version are made side by side and both guns use weapons grade steel and some parts from the real guns. Nothing of course that could be converted to a real gun.

As with my other Full Auto Fun Videos, I shoot up a bunch of clay pigeons and record all the fun using several cameras from several angles and points of view. The ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 Blowback CO2 Full Auto BB Gun has a very high rate of fire and sounds like a real machine gun but much quieter of course. It is also surprisingly accurate as you will see in this Full Auto Fun Video!

ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 4.5mm BB Machine Gun For Sale

SOLD OUT!

I have had a lot of people ask to buy my Russian made ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 4.5mm BB Machine Gun and offer a lot of money for it and I have turned them all down, some may say I am crazy but the people offering the big bucks understand how rare this gun is here in North America and will pay what it takes to own one.

I was approached by the seller that I originally purchased my ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 from and he informed me that he has two brand new in the box units he has acquired and is willing to sell. So for those of you who wanted to buy mine from me, now is your chance to get one!

He is asking $850, "this is not a misprint", they are not cheap, they are a rare collectors item, if you can find one for less money then grab it quick.

Interested parties can send me an email and I will forward your information to the seller. You can work out the details with him. Good luck!

Sometimes you just got to make a video because you can and because it's just plain old fun! And that's why I made this video of me shooting some cans with dual full auto BB machine guns. One is my full auto converted and trusted Cybergun Mini UZI and the other is my newly acquired ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 Russian Machine Pistol.

So sit back and enjoy, I know I did :)

ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 4.5mm BB Machine Gun Review

Type: BB machine gun.
Manufacturer: ZMZ.
Model: Tyrex PPA-K-01.
Materials: Steel.
Weight: 3.24 pounds.
Barrel: 4.83 inches, metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Semi & full auto, single action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB.
Ammunition Capacity: 25 round magazine.
FPS: 328-394 fps.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 is a bit on the heavy side even though it is single action only. In full auto mode this doesn't really matter too much, but in semi auto the heavy trigger can slow down how fast you can shoot your followup shots. You quickly forget about it though because you are having so much fun shooting the Tyrex :)

Accuracy: I was very impressed with the Tyrex PPA-K-01 BB machine guns accuracy in both semi and full auto. I was actually expecting it to do poorly in this area because of the sights, they are inverted or in other words when you are shooting with the stock open, the peep sight would be best suited and when shooting with the stock folded, the pistol "V" sight would be best suited. Unfortunately the setup is backwards on the BB gun version, perhaps a mixup in manufacturing? I may attempt to switch this around at some point. Even with hard to use sights, the Tyrex shot a 1.5 inch 8 shot group in semi auto from 20 feet out and a very respectable full auto burst grouping.

Build Quality: The ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 is not going to win any beauty contests and it's a bit rough around the edges but everything about it is made to last. It's virtually all steel with the exception of the grips and when I say steel, I mean the real hard stuff they put in actual firearms. You won't find any zinc in this BB gun! The Tyrex feel solid and tight with no slop in the moving parts at all, and when you shoot it, it feels like the real thing, minus the loudness and extra recoil of course.

Realism: The Tyrex PPA-K-01 is a very close copy of the Kedr PP-91 (9 x 18 mm Makarov) which is also made in the Russian ZMZ factory. You can tell them apart visually by the grips but other then that they are virtually the same! Based on the quality of the steel used in this gun I would bet money that the BB gun version is made in the same assembly plant and using the same steel.
Purchased From: Private sale

Pros:

  • All "Steel" construction - Good weight and very solid gun.
  • Fit of the parts is very good.
  • Heavy blowback action.
  • Semi and full auto selectable with a nice high rate of fire in full auto.
  • Good accuracy in both semi and full auto.
  • Very Accurate Kedr PP-91replica.
  • Pretty easy operation.
  • The folding stock works very well and is very secure.
  • Not too bad amount off shots for this style - About 2-3 25 round magazines.
  • If you can find one you will be the only kid on the block with a Tyrex for sure!

Cons:

  • Non adjustable sights.
  • Peep and "V" sight should be the other way around.
  • CO2 access can be a bit finicky and be very careful when removing it!
  • Finish is a bit rough but about what you would expect from many Russian made guns.
  • Supper hard to find and if you do find one you will pay a lot of money for it.

Comments:
I have been wanting to get my hands on the ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 BB machine gun for some time now and I was willing to pay dearly for it! I am very happy with this purchase not just as a collector piece but one that I plan to take out and shoot often. Here in Canada the real version of this gun is completely unobtainable so this will have to do and even better yet I can shoot it in my backyard! The Tyrex PPA-K-01 is very pleasing to shoot and sounds more like a suppressed real gun then a BB gun adding to the enjoyment of shooting the Tyrex. Perhaps one day I'll swap the rear sight around and really see how well this BB gun shots?
