    yea, I got one of the $15 uzi barrels, they definitely aren't new but are in relatively good condition, certainly good enough to make a fun plinker out of.

    A sten mag might be too long front to back to fit in the mag well right. Only reaso I say this, is that people have cut the re-enforcement rib out of them so that they could use 7.62x25 in a Sten mag. You'd also have to worry about thinning the feed lug so that it would fit through the single feed of the Sten, or re-form the feed lips so that it is double feed like the PPS-43 mags.

    Suomi sticks might work, and they're about the same price.

    well I am pretty sure an UZI mag won't work, the only one I had on hand was one I built from some sheet metal but the dimensions are at least close, and it didn't fit at all.

    Instead of 9x19 look at 9x23, brass is readily avail. and they fill the factory 7.62x25 mags perfectly. If you can reload, this may be just the thing for you. Ballistics are good and they are known to feed in full auto guns with just a bbl change.

    brass may be available but ammo isn't that available. I do reload, I'll consider it, where do you find a 9mm largo barrel?

    Its NOT largo. Its winchester 9x23 I believe, they will physically interchange but shooting 9x23 in a largo barrel or weapon is dangerous. Let me check my notes and I'll get you the info.


    EDIT:

    9x23 winchester data: case length .900", max overall 1.300", 115 grain at 1517 fps out of a 5" bbl delivering 587 ftlbs

    9mm largo (Bergmann Bayard) data: case length .905", max overall 1.300", 124 grain at 1190 fps for 390 ftlbs.

    Although I can't lay my hands on the pressures, I do recall it was 2x more for the 9x23

    the 7.62x25 shows a case length of .988" and an overall length of 1.377"

    There are several people who can rechamber a 9x19 bbl to the 9x23 winchester.
    You can reload with your 9mm dies both 9x23 and 9x19 but just change the depth of the seat etc.

    uh i think i'll just stick with my 7.62x25..... its way cheap and very easy to get, and plenty hot enough for anything happening.

    That may be so, but 9mm is cheaper, and way easier to get a hold of.

    Okay, maybe I spoke to soon on the cheaper part, but 9mm is still more easily gotten a hold of.
