    Hello and welcome to Gunco.

    At this time it's cheaper to buy a complete rifle than build one.
    If you must build, try a parts kit that's simple, as a complete kit with a
    factory barrel. So many choices.
    Good luck.
    Your in my Mind, and in my Sights

    Sub gun build or any builds? All depends on how much experience you have with tools. If you can weld or have the stuff to learn on that opens alot of doors. If you want to build a rifle look at all the kits on the market amd then when you find the one you like the most look into how much it takes to build one (welding, drilling, making a FCG or linear hammer) Also if you can buy one cheaper.

    Ak's are a good first. I think the most important part is getting a rifle you really want. Because it will always cost you more money and time than you want it to.

    Thanks fo rthe input. I was thinking sub gun, maybe a PPS-43. I'm a pretty good welder and have the necessary tools at my disposal.

    ok, a few questions. If I go with a PPs-43 should I go with a pre-bent receiver or a flat one that has the ejection port already cut out? I have a press so bending it is not the issue. Bending it correctly would be though. Where can I find blueprints?

    Thanks in advance.

    I just rewelded a pps-43 finding somthing that is the same Inner diameter and you can press on is kind of hard. Unless of course you have a lathe. So the bent one might be the way to go. The ejector whole wouldn't be hard if you have drill and a dermel. Mine is actually one of the older Russian kits that still had some of the trunnion. I ended welding on my receiver like in five places.

    The hardest thing on a PPS-43 build is the bolt you have to modify it to have a firing pin. I haven't done mine yet I'm rebuilding my bridgeport which i'm going to use.

    My parts kit came in yesterday and everything looks good. Pictures to follow.

    I have access to a Bridgeport and have thought about trying the bolt mod myself (not guts, no glory). Thought about using a firing pin from an AR-15. Any thoughts?
