    Tube ID depends on which type of Sten you are building.

    For a licensed full auto, or semi auto standard OD bolt with a blocking bar use 4130 DOM seamless 1.375" ID tube.

    For the reduced semi auto ID receiver, turn the bolt down to 1.290 and use .095" wall tubing, which will give you an ID of 1.310.
    For reduced ID you will need to either bore the front and rear of tube for the original OD trunnion and rear cap, or reduce the OD diameter to fit the reduced ID tube.
