    Modernized Sten MKII DIY Build

    Modernized Sten MKII DIY Build






    I am always in awe of people who have the skills to build their own firearms from scratch or a parts kit. Tube-based firearms like a Sten and Sterling are supposedly some of the easier firearms to make, at least so I have heard. I think the next step up is bending an MP5 flat into 9mm roller lock goodness. Foster Huntington shared his modernized Sten MKII build.

    From what little I know about building these guns, which is not much, you start off with a tube of steel. Then you stick on a layout guide that shows you what areas need to be cut.


    Then you need to weld the tube to the lower receiver.

    Foster welded a Picatinny rail and a 3-lug adapter to the barrel.


    He added a small Picatinny rail to the back end of the Sten so he can attach an MPX/MCX stock when he files Form1. The pistol grip is mocked up with zip ties.

    Looks like he beveled the edges of the grip after he welded it to the back plate.


    Here is Fosterís modernized Sten MKII before the finishing touches.


    Foster wrapped the grip and added an SB Tactical FS1913 folding brace in the interim while waiting for his Form 1 to be approved.

    This Sten MKII pistol looks like a lot of fun and with the small additions of adding Picatinny rails to the top and back, it is a lot more practical. The folding brace and stocks for the MPX/MCX are some of the best things to come out for the firearm industry. They breathe a whole new life into firearms. Fosterís modernized Sten MKII looks like a lot of fun to shoot. I would like to see someone mass produce these and sell them for under $1,000. I think they would be very popular.

    The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.

    Cool, ever been to Brazil? in Brazil, especially Rio, home brewed sub-guns are literally a cottage industry. Everything from Stens, Skorpions, Uzi's, micro/Uzis, ect ect ect shows up, quality runs the gamut, from decent to I can't believe the guy who fired that thing survived... Here's a TFB post about them, its also of note that in Brazil, I can obtain one of those little Glock rear slide plate replacements that convert most any Glock to select fire for about $20-dollars, they are so abundant they can be found on almost every Glock pistol taken from drug traffickers, little 13-14 year old boys routinely can be spotted toting about select fire Glock 17's & 22's...
