Well done GOP. You just need some skis and a winter-camo smock and you can play Finn

Well I can see the front sight hood and base, is the front sight post there? It's kind of fuzzy... I did read a review where a guy complained his front sight fell off while shooting so this piece is somewhat fragile.

I have chance to buy a Polish PPS43 full auto minus the barrel, the trunion, and magazine. Anyone got any advice for me as to what this is worth? The seller claims no tax stamp is needed in this condition. What is the "trunion"? Any information you guys could give me would be appreciated....

You can buy them for $70 or so. Hopefully it is minus the receiver that is the sticky part legally. A trunnion is a machined block you attach to the receiver that also holds the barrel...

That explains a lot. It must be minus the reciever.

Default sight

The post seems to be missing....just a hole there were the post is suppose to be; but the hole seems to be off center to be used for the sight....I think I can make whats there work...using some red sight paint...I am going to call
royal tiger monday...and see if they can send me the part...in further examing the hole..it looks threaded..also I took a closer look at the box it was shipped....in...has a hole in bottom of box about the size of a quarter...right were the front of the weapon would have rested in the box...curing shipping I think the sight fell of and out the hole..weird...I was thinking..would an AK-47 front sight post work on this weapon....

No it's unique to this, it was threaded so you could adjust it. My advice is call Royal Tiger have them send you a sight and then locktite it in. Keep us up to date.
