Don't be afraid to grab stock 7.62 magazines.  9mm works just fine in them as well.

Really !    I saw were Pioneer discourages the use in a warning  ???

 They say the 9MM being shorter and can cause the round to move forward and cause jams so now I'm some confused  :-\
The gun is well made all steel and stout.  I'm thinking Violin case or some such case **

Update   I found and watched this video 

I guess they do work....  ;)




** I had looked at the ATI MP40  (comes in cool crate *)
but I was not impressed by the cast zinc alloy the receiver is made from or the plastic pistol grip trigger guard   
Beside the Videos on UT tube about it show jam'o''matic.

So far the PPS-43 has functioned fine...  ;D

A discussion of a little accessory I greatly enjoy in the woods for potting Dillo's and Squirrels, easily removed for zoot.

I may down the road , pay the price of admission to SBR it, so I prolly would not do that accessory.

I did at your suggestion order three 7.62 Magazines with a mag pouch.
I also ordered and received an original sling and mag pouch....

The sling is in mint condition w/ manufacture marks, the pouch was listed in Very Good , Good, and fair condition .

They are sold out in Vg & good so I opted for fair and what I got was way above my expectation
Their claim, "fair" may be dirty , some fraying and missing buttons.
This was not the case ( no pun intended ) :)
no fraying at all , both buttons attached , and just bit of fading but clean also with military marks.

They advertise the PPS-43 Magazines, Three with Canvas Pouch, 35rd, Blued Steel, 7.62X25,  as *Very Good*

based on my other purchase from them , I expect to be pleased , quick 2 day shipping too.

Just got an email from Classic Firearms yesterday (10/27/20) , these are back in stock now @ $649 ... that is almost double the retail of just a few years ago....
and $100 over the last listing in early 2020.

My guess they will sell out again.

I'm impressed with Apex Gun parts...Magazines arrived and look unused ( considering they are vintage 1944-45 )
Fit the PPS-43C perfectly, now if they feed , SCORE !

This may or may not be of any interest & my apologies for Photoshop banners.

Here are modifications to convert the 7.62 Tokorev Mag to 9MM

A standard mag is so modified , by cutting the follower off as in photo # 1

The leg of the follow is then rewelded back shortening the follower length 

a replacement spring is needed , I think they use a 33 Round Glock Mag spring and they pin an 1/8 " PVC buffer strip to the rear of the magazine....

I have been so far unable to find additional 9MM Mags but I did get the 7.64 T mags...

they work but not unless you have the 9MM Rounds all the way forward in the magazine ...  so far I am not that comfortable they'll run reliably,   Like the 9MM mags do .
