It's an open bolt Mk1* built using a Mk2 trigger housing.  The trigger housings are the same.





I have made quite a few Sten guns of various types

They are great fun but the cops don't seem to like them much.   They tried to stop me making them.

The problem was that they said they could easily be made fully automatic in a very short time, they made the video to show that.

When I challenged them in court they had a change of mind and said I could make them anyway IF I dropped my challenge to their ruling.  I agreed to drop the challenge and have been happy ever since. I think they expected me to show up with a lawyer but I did it with my missis as my assistant. I have a good and knowledgeable woman. :)

Cupid, are you the "old codger" in the first picture?

If so, I'd like more info on the one hanging on the wall in the background.

It would appear that you have to make another thread for that one.

There's a bunch of us that really enjoy the older stuff.

I hardly ever shoot that, I prefer Sniders.
