During the design of the PPS-43 submachine gun, one of the main goals was to simplify production and reduce machining time. The majority of the gun’s components were made of stamped sheet metal, which significantly reduced the need for machining operations. As a result, the time required for machining was reduced by over 50%, from 7.3 hours for the PPSh-41 to just 2.7 hours for the PPS-43. Additionally, the amount of raw steel used was cut by more than 50%, from 13.9 kg to just 6.2 kg.

Fewer workers were also required to produce and assemble the parts. The improved production efficiency allowed for a significant increase in monthly submachine gun output, with estimates suggesting that production could be raised from 135,000 units to 350,000 weapons.

For those interested in building their own PPS-43, an 80% receiver which is a non firearm componet that can help  which requires additonal manufacturing to complete the build.
