    I don't anticipate going the SBR route, but if someone bought one and was approved for the SBR, it appears removing the welds would make the stock functional. I believe the value will remain highest on the PPS43C if the potential audience ramains large. Going SBR would narrow the audience.

    But a choice of it would widen the appeal. I would pay the 200.00 tax to keep it's original configuration, while others may choose not to. I have WWII guns and equipment I display and use for reenactments so it would be worth it to me for it to be as close to accurate as possible. The reason I ask the question is if these are new made in Poland as I am to understand, why would they put that tedious and somewhat complicated hinge and latch assembly on a stock that will never be used..? Profit margins are probably small enough. Unless they sell these in other countries also where the laws are different. But I'm pretty sure we have some of the most lax (as it were) gun laws in the "civilized" world ...

    They are built from a parts kit with new parts added. I have to replace the recoil buffer in mine because they used a 60 year old leather one from the parts kit and after firing it for about 200-300 rounds it disintegrated and when I called about a replacement I was told they would replace it with another 60 year old one if I sent the pistol back. I passed on that option. so I'm looking for a suitable replacement.

    I don't know how any companies make them, but below is from IO's site and I assumed they were the only builders ..

    "This pistol is manufactured at the famed Radom Plant in Poland. All parts and components are new and Polish made.
    The PPS-43C pistol comes with 4 curved box magazines, each holds 35 rounds."

    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PPS_submachine_gun


    Outside of the Soviet Union, the PPS was license-produced in Poland (from 1948) and the People's Republic of China (Type 54).[1] Several variants were made based on the PPS-43, including a training version built in Poland, chambered for the .22 Long Rifle rimfire cartridge (fed using standard PPS-43 magazines but modified with an aluminum reduction insert)

    I love the pistol, it shoots like a champ. I did have one issue, the front peg for the front sight came off and got lost, so I need to see if I can buy a replacement. The only other thing with shooting corrosive ammo, it's a pain to clean up after. The pistol does shoot great, fun to shoot, and looks pretty cool.
