    I have 2 mags that came with my 9mm pps that have a plastic spacer running the length of the magazine, installed to the rear. Both mags are 7.62 originals but have this spacer and shortened follower to position the 9mm round toward the front of the magazine. I have four other mags that are not modified that I also shoot the 9mm from. I think the few feed issues I've had are with the modified mags.

    Mine runs perfectly with the 7.62 mags. The 2 9mm ones I had were shit. Sold them for cheap. I bought 25 of them from lee's mags a few years ago when they had a $7.99 sale. I have tried them all and no problems.

    Yes, after my federal stamp came in, I bought a pps43 cut receiver rear end so I could harvest the stock depressor assembly. Pretty easy modification. Make sure your stamp is in hand before you get the parts and make modifications.

    Most likely Stottsman had a 1st gen and some of those were crappy to begin with.

    Maybe. It was bought in early 2015 though, and there was only one place left with them... I hesitated too long.

    I had an early 7.62 x25 model it blew up in my face. Problem was it had a week return spring so when it would fire it would start to eject the cartridge to soon. Lots of bulged cases necks flatend out like a striating walled cartridge. I took it back to we’re i bought it after it showered my hand a face with little pieces of brass. They ended up giving me another. Just have never fired it much.

    Sounds like the firing pin was sticking. That's the problem with an open bolt design that's been converted over to closed bolt if anything messes up with the sticker and the firing pin sticks then boom boom boom. Releasing the trigger does nothing, it'll run till it's dry.

    I think my converted mags are the later ones, the spacer is riveted in place. They work fine but I have some bulk 9mm +p loads that must be a bit longer than factory as they don’t fit. But my surplus 7.62 mags run everything fine. I got em for $13 from Numrich on sale not too long ago. The 9mm spacer mags are hard to find, pricey, and pointless.

    personally I wouldn’t spend the time & money to SBR one unless it’s running right. Parts aren’t as readily available unless you buy a complete build kit. Mine’s still bad about not ejecting cases, but still fun. If you want a retro sbr ATI has a clone of the original folder for their 9mm MP40 clone. Supposed to be 922r compliant.
