PostSubject: Using Real PPSh41 Woodwork   Fri Nov 06, 2009 11:59 am

I've wondered about the possibility of buying a genuine PPSH41 wooden stock and transferring the Hudson model metalwork over to give a better looking modelgun.

In Poland PPSh stocks appear occasionally (once every 2-3 months). Prices range from 20$ (replica) to 50-80$ (original).
Original AK stocks are much more common, priced 8-15$.

Shipping to UK (as pretty much anywhere else those days) is quite expensive though, about 50$ :-/

Really Now that has got me thinking about the possibility even more....
I wonder how easily the PPSh model parts would transfer over

you would have to modify the steel bracket at the back of the Hudson receiver...worse than this though is that the hudson lower trig assy is 16mm wide and the real one is 20mm wide so the hudson part would flop about in the PPSH woodwork.

Of course all of these things can be overcome with metal / woodwork but it may be easier to refinish your hudson stock

Next step - would it be possible to fit original trigger assembly (~90$ here) in Hudson receiver?

Probably not :-/ It should be easier to fill gaps in wood with wood pieces.

Thanks very much Doc, it just goes to show that even though these replicas are superb copies of the real thing in most respects, there are some big differences.
If the Hudson woodwork can be refinished to look as good as the real ones then you're most likely quite right, it would be easier

That's a good question. I guess that some shaping/filing of the wood might be required.

For a limited time (about a month from now) these links to auctions should be available for viewing:

Originals, new, post-war, 200PLN (~70 USD):

http://www.allegro.pl/item758581710_kolba_do_ppsz_wz_41_pepesza.html

Original, includes sling and screws, 150PLN (~55 USD)
http://www.allegro.pl/item752823841_kolba_ppsz_pas_sruba.html

I'm sure PPU can also let us know about stock availability from original country :-)

An interesting item - another type of wooden stock for PPSh.

This is a training version with cutouts to show mechanism details.
Set also contains a screwdriver and cleaning rod.
