    There is a guy in CT that is working on a new semi sten conversion called the BSA-3 sten. He is at www.stenguns.tripod.com. I have 2 kits cleaned up just waiting for the new approved design.

    I'm waiting for the BSA-3 as well for use with a MkV kit I've been holding. Might do another MkIII, but with a full lenth IMI 9mm barrel instead of going the barrel extention route like my first one. The SAS-3 kits are a bear to cock and the springs don't seem to hold up long.

    Don't hold your breath, it ain't going to happen, IMO.

    New hammer being made for the SAS3 will take care of the problems. They said it would be out within a month or so.

    Well, this kinda sucks. I want to build mine but the BSA3 kit is taking a hella long time to come out and the SAS3 kit is not available. I guess i will have to wait till something happens.

    BSA kit will never come out. I told you all this a year ago. The SAS3 kit will be back in by the end of the month. They had a special where all orders before 1/1/06 would receive a sten MK3 kit for only $25...

    Apparently the company is making some changes to the bolt and hammer to make the SAS3 even more reliablle. I have built one of the kits, but never tried it yet. I need to play with the springs because it takes all I got to cock that thing!

    changes to the SAS3 bolt have nothing to do with reliabilty, they are making it easier to use when building a mark2 or mark5 kit is all. They did redesign the hammer, however, to add more mass.
