Default DP28 Barrel

Today, I confirmed something I had been wondering about. I managed to burst the barrel on the DP28 after about 12 mags.

Just thought you guys might be interested, just in case you didn't already know.

How exactly is it possible that you are armed with
a machine gun from Degtyaryov?

It took 494 rounds? That seems like too many but its accurate, since the DP is almost as famous as the AK for durability being able to be "buried in sand and mud and was still capable of firing more than 500 rounds." Also with its lower rate of fire, it would take longer to destroy the barrel.

Good work TW.

I dunno I can usually get is smoking (though not jammed) if I unleash 3 pans without pause. In short burst I have almost never had an issue with overheating though.

This is kind of funny because I remember someone one the suggestion forum demanding that the DP 28 come with extra barrels even though he was told it would be historically inaccurate and impossible to change in battle. He claimed it was a huge balance issue.

So 12 pans huh? Good work, I like the DP.

The DP-28 actually does have a relatively quick barrel change... it was just so seldom needed that Russian light machine gun teams were rarely issued a spare barrel to begin with. So no, not a balance issue.

Didn't it somewhat require dissassembly of the gun?

I'm at level 15 with both mg's now and I haven't required any barrel changes yet. I liked the feature in early videos, but yeah... other than that I didn't see it being used.

The DPM is identical to the DP28 in most respects--the biggest changes were:

--extended reciever at the rear of the DPM to accomodate a recoil spring behind the bolt
--improved bipod in response to many battlefield complaints about the DP28's
--pistol grip

The barrel change was the same as the DP28's.

As can be seen from the picture below, the barrel change mechanism is identical. The button on the left side of the reciever is present on both designs, and the barrels are interchangeable between the two weapons.
