Super-duper. Like many artists you are hard to please. I guess that's how Mona Lisa got painted.
Yes... never 100% happy I guess. There a few things I would have done differently in hindsight but I have limited tools. Some things I've already corrected on the ACAD file which when I made it would have made things a bit easier and I should have done some steps differently but was afraid to go to far hacking the Sten up. After cutting the front sight off I sould have brazed it to the barrel shroud before I glued in the barrel end. Becasue I didn't I had to create pins and use epoxy puddy to mount it. Turned out durable but not as durable as if I would have brazed it on.
I'll post more photos later about how to attach the gun to the stock. This gave me some fits to figure out because I wanted a solid mounting system that was easy to remove. In the end I got there and it works very well and as it turned out no that hard to do.
I have a 1917 enfield stock i purchased years ago. I hope to mod into a lanchester paintball smg later this year. I also have an old sterling gas operated airsoft that could provide a template for a sten or lanchester smg.
With the stock reshaped and re-fauxed and applied the final detail pieces I gave it a test fire. With the AK stick 11.1v lipoly I'm getting a respectable 340 fps on a pdi 170. Attached is an MP38/40 sling.

kalbs replyed to my message and says ---------It was actually quite easy using a bolt set in the bottom forward center. the nut is a thumb screw from a red-dot mount. The rear is heldon with a custom L-bracket and screw.
reichelderfer: I'd buy the G&G if they had more mags for it, same could be said for the KA Carbines.

stuka: I believe 2nd bat is a mod. What do you mean turn ak sideways?

cptkelley: I cut the lower receiver of an AK 47 in half and reattached the front half with the magazine facing the left side of the gun. The only downside is that now the hop up is sideways

Dracul: I was stationed there. Can't say too much of it happens down there unfortunately. I'd suggest just going to Desert Fox Fields or Jericho in WWII gear and hopefully it catches on.

Navy Doc: ianfreakish I lived there most of my life. Sadly there's not much activity; I'd advise going to airsoft fields in gear and building your own team to get activity going

Dracul: JSH, sorry for a late reply. Both a really great guns and will last you (in their own ways), only thing is the extra Springfield mags are expensive. It really boils down what your impression is. Commonwealth? US?
