    How hard is it to remove the barrel? If I understand it correctly it is held in by a flange at the chamber end and a rivet/pin through the trunion. Is the pin accessable? If so I may do both as I cast and reload 9mm as it is.

    Hello moleman,
    The PPSH-41 barrel is retained by the 12mm pivot pin which is an easilly removeable takedown as well as the barel lip. There were several styles of pivot pins used. Some were like the 2-piece MAC take-down pins, Some were like pop pins. Some were fixed by a small set-screw from the bottom of the trunion.

    9mm ammo feeds well from the PPSH-41 box or drum mags. Just set the round to the rear of the feed device for best results. Schillstrom quad mags and Sten mags can be adapted for the 9x19mm ammo for te PPSH-41.

    In WW-II the Nazis captured about one million PPSH-41's from the commies. The Nazis made a mag well adapter to employ their Schmeiser MP mags and rebarreled the burpguns to 9x19mm Parabellum ammo. Those conversion kits are HIGHLY collectable today.

    It would seem that the Suomi and PPS-43 drums could be adapted for the 9x19mm conversion.

    PS: akfiend, that is a cute carbine you built !!!!! Congrats !!!!

    What VD said, look at the pic again, that large pin in front of the mag is the pivot pin he's talking about. After that's out the barrel comes out toward the rear.

    That's great, thanks for the info. I really like the wood stocked subguns like the ppsh41 and kp31.
