    I picked up a couple of those. They look pretty good other than being cut into pieces. Bronze bolts. They only have the t-stocks left.

    I don't think they numbered the parts on a STEN, just what's stamp on the mag well?

    Mine came the same as Ken3030's. Bronze bolt, t stock. The magwell is in good shape. I ordered a tube and barrel from Stenparts.com, they should be here tommorow.

    standard 1 1/2" OD electrical conduit (EMT) is same dimension as sten, swede K, and several other tubeguns.
    you can buy it at lowes in 10 foot lengths cheap.
    it is common 1018 steel, but is tough enough to run tens of thousands of rounds.

    If you want a different caliber, I have seen a MKII the guy had converted to .38Super. All he did was ream the chamber of a spare bbl with the .38 reamer, ran fine. He did have to handload as the mag is a bit short for the max OAL on a .38Super. Since he ran .38 Major in his race guns, doing so was not an issue. He had the steel bolt, BTW, and it was an open bolt dealer sample so YMMV.

    Kits are fun but I want to build it all from scratch. I have the metric version of blue prints, I was hoping some one converted them or was a standard(American) set?????
