Typical PPs-43 parts kit

Please note that GunBuilds is not building or supporting these guns at the present time.

Thank you for your interest in my process for building the Russian PPs-43 parts kit into a legal, semi auto pistol.

Please keep in mind at all times that this is only a documentary of what I did when I restored my PPs-43 parts kit into a legal, functioning and delightful semi-auto firearm. While I will try to guide you through everything I did and why I did it, this is NOT an all inclusive How-To-Do-It or step-by-step tutorial. I'm sure to miss little things you may find important. These little blind spots open the door to your creativity and allow you to make this build very personal. Please feel free to consider doing anything and everything differently. There is no single way to do any part of this project. Just use common sense and be careful!

With that said, please consider that any changes to the fire control group or bolt/striker system most likely will void any BATF approval status for your final product.

Please note that this is nothing more than a chronicle of my project. I do NOT warrant any part of this to be safe, legal or scientifically sound. I do not accept, and you agree by continuing on and using this CD that I do not accept, ANY legal liability for omissions, errors, typographical mistakes or any other act that leads to malfunction, injury or property damage. It's up to you to research these things and make your own informed decision. I assume NO legal liability for the outcome of any part of your project. These things worked for me, but I have no way to know if you have actually carried these steps out to my standards.
