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.
Dracul: Wait, farb worked though. I see it on your message, on my end.... What does Flagrantly Wrong cover for?

aldrich: It covers for f a r b y

Dracul: Ah, okay. Crap. But, why such innocent words, though? The only plausible way to consider the term b e a s t to be offensive in any matter is to interpret it as the whole biblical 666 thing. Not to get into anything religious, but just why?
Dec 12, 2014 2:49:25 GMT -5
Dracul: And f a r b y.. just how, what possible reason could there be for that?

aldrich: Well I did have a roommate tell me once to "stop being such a farb!" I asked him if he knew what it meant and he had no idea, he just heard a civil war reenactor who came to his high school use it once. haha

2nd Bat: Early on in the discussions FARB and Flaggrantly Wrong were laid out in such an insulting and pajoritive way by snipers on the site who weren't even participants at airsoft events and the tone was just too derogatory that the hall monitors decided to not allow them.

2nd Bat: As for lollipops I have no clue?

2nd Bat: F A R B Y and B E A S T. Geeze even in the shout outs they are banned?
Dec 12, 2014 15:03:30 GMT -5
Dracul: Ah, F A R B makes sense then. But B E A S T? Here is the odd thing... I remember when I made the original post on the Impression over Gun thread, and the term went through properly, and I saw it there.

Dracul: It wasn't until later that day, when I came back to it, thats when I saw the it was censored!

FritzoftheMidwest: So, folks, I now have the two guns I need to make the Bar98k. The question, (one of many) is weather I should upgrade the Bar10 internals before installing the lot into the Dboys?
Dec 15, 2014 23:32:22 GMT -5
Dracul: You can if you want, but most make their Bar98's have the ability to still remove the internals in case of something breaking, or needs of upgrading.

FritzoftheMidwest: Solid point, and If I follow the guides put up by our tech savvy gunsmiths, I should be fine. Hopefully
Dec 15, 2014 23:37:54 GMT -5
Dracul: Its a big step, and big task to take on, but as long as you can learn from your mistakes, you can improve!

FritzoftheMidwest: I'm excited for it, but I'm a perfectionist. This shall be interesting ha. I may also try and convert an old bike I have into a German fahrrad
