    So you basically need everything but the lower?

    Yea' pretty much,the availability of parts will ultimately determine the build.I probably should have done more research on this gun and parts,but I didn't and now I'm intrigued by this and want to get it finished.Can you help me in any way? morayman............

    Gunthings has complete kits with bbl and one mag for $170. Military Gun Supply has kits without a bbl and one mag for $70. Extra mags sell with the kit for about $11 each. If you're going to be buying almost everything anyway, it's probably cheaper just to buy a kit. The bbl less kits are a great deal if you're going to make a full length rifle, you'll need a bbl anyway.

    no one thinks your a weirdo, in fact some think I am one so" f*ckem "
    I think you came off a little strong by Pming to one member, instead of intro ing yoursef

    I have stopped giving build advice, I will give up tips. I came to learn I was teaching low lifes how to build and god know who else. I just decided to stop, I sleep better now

    ok I have little to no experience with this type of build, my advice with this build and others is to do your reasearch before asking for advice
    first go to weaponeer, weaponsguild, roderus homebuilders, go through the old & active threads & tutorials others have done, Oh here too!!! read and re-read them
    I believe there are a few active build threads over at the guild, but i stopped going over there so they maybe dated but VERY informative

    good luck

    Does anyone have a drawing of the PPS-43 flat (repair section only) ???
    I have one for the KP-44 type but would like the PPS-43 flat drawing to add to my library.

    Thanks,

    There are at least two over on the Weapons Guild. Join up if you don't belong. It is another great site and has lots of build related info.

    I might be able to help with some stuff, but first want to say this.
    If all you have is the lower, you might be better off getting a complete kit (like mentioned by others) and sell the lower you have.

    I do have the upper repair section, trunnion, bracket thing, and maybe the rivets. I'd sell these for what I paid + shipping. I don't remember what I paid right now, need to find the thread or PM first.
    I might have some other stuff too, but I got to dig around and see what I have. I think I got a kit with everything but the stock assembly?
    Might be a little though because work has taken a lot of my free time lately and I need to take pics for another member too.
