Yup. Here's a discussion I started on my Beretta 102 magazine spacer that I've been making. I've sold about 50 of them on eBay and GunBroker. I'm working on moving onto other models now.

I bought five more magazines for my PPS-43C at Centerfire Systems for $9.99 each. They are $12.99 unless you buy 3 or more. Got 'em today and they're nice almost-new magazines, although some of them have serial numbers etched or stamped into them.

2 of them fit my PPS well, but the other 3 are too tight to easily remove. So now I have 10 magazines, 4 of which fit my PPS well. So, something in the magwell must be hanging up the other 6. So, I've got some work on the gun to do, but I'm sure I can fix it.

I also got original PPS slings for $4 (OK, so I bought 3 of them, normal price is $5) and I bought some magazine pouches for $4 (again, normal price for $5, unless you buy 3). Pretty good deal, I though. Other places are selling the slings for $20 - $25 and the mag pouches for $20+.

Finally got out shooting with the PPS today. HOLY CRAP, that gun is fun to shoot! I only shot one box, and I took out my new Yugo M57, too, so I shot 40 rounds thru the PPS and 10 through the M57. Both guns shot utterly reliably without a single problem. No misfeeds, light strikes, or anything. Bang bang bang.

The trigger pull on the M57 is a bit long and a bit gritty, but it was fine. The PPS was a dream to shoot, tho. Very fun--practically no recoil!

Took the PPS out to a shooting session with about a dozen of my local neighbor friends. Those who shot it thought it was a lot of fun--but the real hit of the shooting session was my Yugo AK-47 PAP pistol. They loved it!
