    Default PPsh 41 build as a pistol?

    Has anyone built a Ppsh 41 into a pistol? Has anybody built one of these and have some pictures to share? I was going to consider converting one of my Romy kits into a 7.62x25 pistol, as such a large cartridge (7.62x39) seems out of place in a pistol, until I googled the "burp gun" for my grandfather who fought in Korea. Needless to say, I haven't even gotten off the ground yet with my Romy's and now I want to build one of those burp guns for myself as a pistol since I am sure compliant parts aren't available and no way am I going to SBR that thing. This way I can keep my excellent Romy's as rifles and still have the toy I so desire. I'll look at pics of rifles too, just postanything, especially if it is odd or different. I build like Mad Max so the more post apocalyptic looking the better as far as I am concerned. Thanks in advance!

    yes yes and yes.

    my good friend NItegunner and me have built quite a few ppsh's between us and he has the pistol version.

    you can see the build of it at weaponsguild.com under ppsh.

    pretty straight forward build that way.

    That is cool! but this is more of what I had in mind. I love sawed off double barrel shotguns and this is sort of along those same lines. The ultimate home defense system! Or just something to take out into the woods and blast away at those stinking armidillos that rut up my G-pas' place in AR!!!!!!! I have found kits without barrels or trunions, will a ppsh 43 barrel and trunion fit the ppsh 41? with mods?

    nah the 43 barrel doesnt work in the 41...

    im sure you could turn it and weld it till it did but you can just buy one from IO pretty cheap.

    you can also do like weaponeer did and cut that stock off at the tang and mount an AK/AR style grip to the lower tang screw. that looked pretty cool also....

    im lousy with the paint program or id show you what i mean...

    that pic disappeared, but it winds up being about 3" shorter than the one in your pic is.

    they are great guns and i wouldnt hesitate to do this if i had the extra kits....

    Won't work, completely different.

    I have found kits without barrels or trunions,
    I got one on GunBroker right now, with barrel & trunion.

    Hey Coils, I saw that kit on GB, it was a nice kit no doubt but I am struggeling to get these two AKs together, see I JUST learned of this hobby and envy you guys that speak of having bought $65 AMD's. I hope you get what you are wanting for it as it really looks good!!! I still want to see some pics of some builds!

    Dutigaf, I gave you credit for sending me over to the other site, I had to join to see the stuff and they asked so...

    thank you very much.

    that site and this site get along fine and we recommend each other back and forth... no issues between the 2 sites at all.

    Nitegunner has a real nice build of this, just wish i was good at that photshop stuff you guys do..
