    yea I like this build. I like the mag well set up and how you moved the trunion back thanks for the additional pictures.

    nice build!

    I like the mag well plates especially.
    could you post pix of the bullet guide. (I don't think I overlooked it in the pix)

    whered you get the 16 inch ppsh barrel?
    how much?
    is it a true 16" or just welded pipe on a ppsh smg/pistol barrel?

    good job building this considering you're a college student who probably works and goes to school full time!

    The bullet guide is pictured above, the last picture in post #8. Its aluminum for now, I'll be remaking it in steel soon.

    I got the barrel from here Buymilsurp.com, Your source for military surplus. under PPsh-43 parts
    Looking back, I'd rather go the original barrel + welded pipe route so I could profile it like an AK barrel. The 16" pps barrel is too thin for AK components, I made bushings for the trunnion, rear sight block and the handguard retainer. I used a piece of brass shim stock to wrap around the barrel under the front sight block since the diameters were too close for a bushing. On the up side, the barrel is threaded for 14x1mm LH, but thats a moot point for me thanks to the AWB. I ground them off.

    Heres a slightly better picture of the underside of the mag well

    And the whole gun in my messy garage

    I heat treated the parts I was talking about above. Aside from lighting the oil on fire when doing the carrier, it went well. All parts were tempered to blue/straw. I also fixed the cant in the front sight by drilling out the holes and adding larger pins, added a rail to the top cover and more securely mounted the rear sight. Also threw on an AMD cleaning rod. Completely useless for cleaning because its too short, but it helps secure the lower handguard. Still have yet to fire it.

    Very nice work rk5n- I especially admire the clean work you did in fabricating the gas block/sight base. I try to avoid welding because mine usually ends up looking like a tumor. Yours looks great.

    Im starting to think my son might like one of these for Xmas. Id do it in sporter/hunter style with optics and a 5 or 10 round mag to keep the weight down for him super light barrel, light weight plastic stock or a aluminum tube stock maybe some alumium barrel parts ect , I want it light so he can carry it and hold it up. I really need to get baack on track i bought the reamer the mags the blankes ect I need to get one done.

    I really llike the mag well it gives me some ideas.

    That is a nice clean conversion.
    I did one earlier this year. I used a pps-43 magwell.
    It's blowback also, and has huge recoil energy.
    I use Romanian surp primarily. The Yugo and Bulgarian surp is
    brutally strong. S&B is nice and clean, but too expensive for me.
    I can fire 70 rds before everything starts fouling out. I just hose the
    fcg and innards down with WD-40 and continue.

    Ar you getting a lot of fouling on the bolt & in that area while shooting it? Sounds like the bolt is starting to open while the powder is still burning in the barrel. Might want to try a stronger recoil spring?

    I did install a heavier spring. I may try an M14 spring just to see the
    effect cause these are real heavy.
