    Default PPS43 question

    I got one of the Radom PPS43 pistols and wanted to know that if I put a US made barrel that is 16.5" on it and switch out the welded stock for a working one to avoid the SBR stamp, will I then need to make it 922 compliant?

    Thanks

    I am far from an expert, but I would think so. Now, where in the world do you get US made PPS43 parts?

    My thoughts exactly too, but, why does it make it really any different from others built from kits that had original barrels, a modded rifle trigger group, and new sheet metal?

    Those I think would need a certain number of US parts too.

    True. Hopefully one of the experts will chime in.

    That's a great question, Centerfire is selling compliance parts to make Semi auto pistols now for the PPS-c and Soumi's

    Yes it would have to meet 922r

    They do, but I can't remember the total number of US parts.
    But you have to figure the receiver repair section makes that a US part, then the trigger group is another three, if you go with a new barrel (16") that another, and I think (not sure) but the modified bolt might count as another. So that 5 to 6 parts there.

    Hmm, I wonder how many US parts would be satisfactory to be compliant?

    This would be different than a kit build though as it is a fully functional factory Radom pistol.

    Thanks.

    Your counting from the wrong direction. First, you need to know how many imported parts are on the gun, and remove until you only have 10.

    IIRC, the Radom pistols use a hammer mechanism, so figure:
    FCG =3
    bbl=1
    trunnion=1
    receiver=1
    stock=1
    pistol grip=1
    trigger housing=1
    bolt=1
    magazine=3

    total:13

    You're replacing the bbl, so you're down to 12. You need 2 US made parts to compensate. They make US made trunnions, but replacing an existing one is a bit hard to do. I would think whittling out some custom grips would be the next item.

    Thanks Krink.

    Makes sense.

    Would a muzzle brake count towards that too?

    I think it would, IMO

    no its not in the original 13 parts

    You could probably trace and hack out a piece of the FCG to meet it.

    I have seen a post with the pistol FCG and they appear to be pretty close to the AK FCG maybe you can modify a US part or two to work
