I was excited as I finally got my kit yesterday..lol.. I was at work when my wife called and said fedex dropped them off. I had to wait 12hrs before I could fondle it
My buddy wants to start building too so he wanted a Sten as well so I ordered 2 and of course, I kept the best one of the pair.
I love the Sten, always have so I am really glad to actually be on the verge of building one. I have built 8 AK's and 2 AR's so I am not new to building... this thing looks easy.
These kits came from Cheaper Than Dirt, they are nice looking kits but there are 2 things I am a bit unhappy about. The cut at the rear seems to have went down too far and I will most likely have to get that tigged up and during the demill, they cut off the "wings" for the tube to sit on. It won't be a functional problem but it is cosmetic and I like them. I have to call CTD tommorow and ask why I had to pay $80.00 catalog price when these same kits are on the website for $60.00.
Heres a quick pic. Ok guys, never built one of these so I am all ears for how to do a Semi-Sten... help me out fellas. I'd like to say money is no object but it is to a point. I truely desire to have one of these WW2 relics in my collection
