    I Just ordered 2 suomi kits from copes and am trying to resist the urge to go ahead and buy the steel until the kits arrive. I'm also waiting to see how he does the mag well in the future issues because he uses a steel 1"x2" tube. I measured my sten MKII kits magwell and it measures: .832" id, 1.045" od front; .955" id, 1.170" rear and 1.540" id, 2.010" od(with mag catch retainer in place) long with a wall thickness of around .110". I"m guessing he cuts and opens up the rear of the magwell to get it to fit the sten mags.

    Wicks is also the place listed in the article as where the builder got his supplies. I was going to also look locally to see if there was any alternative source for the receiver tube. I think so far I have or can make everything I need except the receiver tube and the kits that are on their way.

    I read that article and I think I'm gonna go that direction for my 7.62x25 rifle build instead of it being AK based. I totaly dig the looks of the one he made and the Suomi bolt will work with the x25, I just need a barrel.

    I got my 2 Suomi kits from Copes today. What a shame they looked like they had been rearsenaled, put into storage and taken out to be cut up. The metal (except for the receiver) is in excellent shape for both kits. The stocks are kinda rough sanded and both of them have cracks, but the cracks are clean and repairable I think. Anyone else get the article yet?

    I finally received my SGN.

    The build looks like a lot of sweat, skinned knuckles, and cuss words, but doable as stated if you are determined. It looks like the reason he makes the bolt so small in diameter is so he can use the AR FCG.

    I think I will pass on that particular build for a while. I have others in mind that I would prefer bleeding and cussing over.

    I don't think it'll be too bad, especially if you have a milling machine or the milling vice for your lathe. The sten builds use the ar fcg and the bolt is bigger in diameter than 1". I think he just used some smaller diameter tubing because it was easier for him for whatever reason. The weaponeer link posted in the "how hard is a suomi build" thread showed a wealth of info on converting the bolt. I'm still working my way through all 124 pages of it. So far I've seen that the fireing pin bushing might not need to be removed, but just anealed and the fireing pin hole drilled. Thats why I was waiting to get my kit to decide what size steel pipe to get. I'm kinda tempted to get a larger size but with a small enough inside diameter that the bolt will have to be turned down.
