A couple of months ago I posted about finding my old Bingham PPS-50 in my parents' attic, http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=103886&highlight=bingham+pps-50 . Now that the weather is a bit cooler and I have some time on my hands I thought it high time to get to bringing this little banger back to life. I need some help though.

I need the following items from owner's that have one of these little beauts:

1. Owners manual, either original, copied, scanned, whatever. If you have one and are willing to part with it or make a copy it would be greatly appreciated.

2. Pictures of the parts layout from the recoil mechanism. I am missing everything between the bolt and end cap; recoil spring and related parts. It's been so long I don't know what all is supposed to be in there! A few photos of a field-stripped bolt group and recoil mechanism and how the parts relate would be great. Also, anyone with spares that they are willing to part with (especially a recoil spring), I would be interested in acquiring them.

3. An original stock OR a factory standard Ruger 10/22 stock. As you can see from the original pics my stock is busted in half, and missing great chunks of wood from the neck area. I think it would be quite troublesome to rebuild, but I think I could modify a Ruger stock to make a sufficient replacement.

4. A magazine! My original 50 round drum is long gone and new mags for this piece command a premium price, so, if you have a mag for this that is less than perfect (either drum or stick) and are willing to part with it for a reasonable price, drop me a line. Also, if anyone knows whether or not any other .22 LR rifle mags will feed this rifle with slight mods, let me know.

That's it. If anyone can help me out with these requests please contact me either via PM or email. I will entertain all offers and give anyone who can help due credit as I go about this project.

Thanks.

Here you go! Should be able to find what you want there, or someone that can get it for you.

Holy thread resurrection, Batman! Help arrives late but hopefully not too late. I'd like to see what happened to this rifle!
