    usmc3531 - thanks for posting the picture.

    Now for stupid question time - are the ppsh41 and suomi mags the same or are there any differences?

    The PPsH drums are wider to accomodate the longer 7.62X25 cartridges.

    thanks kernel. I'm gaining inspiration for this project, I just hate the thought of potentially messing up a 8 rd makarov mag - especially for what they are selling for now.

    usmc3531 - did you use a bunch of dummy rounds in the mag, or did you use some sort of other method when you did the suomi to sten mag pictured above?

    I think it took 12 dummys for the "tower" in mine and the sten portion is single stack. cdnn has suomi drums rusty ones for $20 theroetcicaly you could make a baseplate for the mag welded to the drum and have the mag removeable, just not sure how long it would hold up to the extra weight though. Id see what kind of cheap mag would fit to use for the conversion

    That's a really good idea, if this could be done it would make a good test base, and once you knew it worked it could be made more permanent.

    usmc3531 - thanks for the information. It is appreciated.



    stalker1 - you know it would be fun to make one. Heck - if for nothing else - the look on people's faces at the range would be priceless.

    That's cool just for the weirdness of it. Like Sniper said can you imagine the looks you'd get at the range? LOL.
