Abstract: The first main result of this paper is that summable isotype subgroups inherit total projectivity. This means: ($ \ast $) if an isotype subgroup of a totally projective group has a free socle (viewed as a valuated vector space) then the socle completely determines the subgroup up to isomorphism. The next major result is that ($ \ast $) does not generalize to the case where the socle is that of a totally projective group of length exceeding $ \Omega $, nor does ($ \ast $) generalize to the case where the socle is that of an $ S$-group of length $ \Omega $. Finally, it is shown that if, in addition to $ H$ being isotype in a d.s.c. group $ G$, it is also known that $ K/H$ is divisible where $ K$ is the closure of $ H$ in $ G$ relative to the $ {p^\Omega }$-topology, then ($ \ast $) again prevails when the socle is that of an $ S$-group.
