I've been doing research on a sten build and it doesn't seem that hard. Would I be correct in assuming that this is not a very difficult build?
Does anyone know where I can get the least expensive sten parts kit?
Sportsman's guide sell Sten MkIII kits for $100 but I think they are missing at least a few parts http://www.sportsmansguide.com/cb/cb.asp?a=222996
I found receiver blanks and 80% recievers for sale at Prexis/Sten but I'm not sure what exactly I'd need to do once I got a reciever and a parts kit. Any info on a sten build?
It seems the reciever blanks and 80% recievers are basically just steel tubes with a template attached. The only difference I can see between the reciever blank and an 80% reciever is that the 80% has the bolt slot milled out already. Is this slot hard to mill out (worth the extra money) or should I just purchase the blank and mill it out myself (I can use the Bridgeport at work)?
If I order the reciever blank w/template attached can I complete the reciever with a drill press and mill or is it more complicated then that?
