    I was originally going with a hammer, trigger set-up, but I'm giving more thought to using a striker system. I know clark modified the original Suomi parts for his striker system. I don't know if he has approval yet however. My idea is to duplicate the parts with "bought in America but probably made somewhere else" tool steel. That way I'm adding 922r parts.
    I'm waiting on my bolt and front filler to arrive so I can continue with this build.
    I'm off to the weld supply store today to get a refill of argon so I can finish welding the Cetme.
    And the semi PPS-43 is shooting now so only a few cosmetics to do on it yet.
    I'm trying to clear the decks, so to speak, to concentrate on getting the Suomi built. IIRC, it's going on almost 2 years since I started the damn thing. I'd like to finish it before I retire. Sigh.

    i have no idea how to build anything, and am giving up on making the actual Suomi out of the 2 kits i have. but i was thinking of just making a franken gun out of a mac 9mm action, with the the furniture looks of an MP5, and use the Suomi drums.

    On weaponeer.net we are also selling the replacement M31 sideplates, so you can rebuild that section for your own FCG, or for Milspec replacement for the 07/SOT's.
    Visit Weaponeer.net for build details, tools, and parts.

    the sideplates are nice....

    Dan diesel also has his conversion plates available for the AR set up..

    Greg Clark DID get his build approved if you want to do the striker version.
