I am looking at purchasing a sten MKII kit and dropping in a closed bolt semi auto kit and 16" barrel.

I have a few questions regarding the build and legalities.

1) Does the barrel assembly/ shroud screw right into the barrel bushing?

2) If so, how will this affect is a being a true 16" weapon if the barrel can be changed readily?

3) If the following two are ture, does a 16" barrel on a MKII need to be permenantly attached?

4) Is there a suggested source for mags that are reliable and do not have feeding issues?


Thanks for all of your help.

Hi,

I've been vaguely considering a Sten build for some time but for something that cost the Brits in WWII less than $10 the price of a semi seems out of hand. Using Prexis parts I could get close to buying a decent AR15 at the same cost.

Anyone have any info on a cheap semi-auto Sten build?
