    To bring this topic back, I just ordered two of these kits from Centerfire. The firing pin appears to be part of the bolt, but actually isn't. There is a small cross pin to punch out, then you need a long thin punch to get into the bolt and push out the firing pin. There appears to be enough space in the bolt that a floating firing pin could be installed with no milling. I would like to see these built up, should be nice guns.

    They are pretty easy. Go over to Weaponeer, they have a section over there.

    I was wondering if anyone has seen these: http://www.prexis.com/sten/39.htm and what they thought of them. Also, why would they offer a reduced ID version and bolt turning service to fit the reduced ID? What advantage would this provide? I can't tell by looking, so can anyone that isn't a Slo as I am tell me what would be involved in finishing one of these?

    3. Barrel length (16" min)
    4. Overall length (should be covered w/ #3)

    yes, will be "fun" to say the least. Machining is required and will be almost the same as a semi-auto sten build.

    If a guy was to build one into a pistol, wouldn't he just need to get rid of the buttstock and he could eliminate issues #1, 3 and 4?

    If that is true - then how do we contend with #2?

    GREAT - One more reason to stay in "The Shop/Wife Cycle" (You know the one, I spend hours in the shop having fun, then come in the house to listen to the wife compain about spending too many hours in the shop, she doesn't let up so I go out to the shop for some peace and quiet, and find another project to build, spend hours in the shop working on it and having fun, then I come in the house........)

    jeez, you make the wife thing sound harder than the closed bolt conversion. tell me it ain't so. i'm over here in china recruiting the next one (and working a little bit, too), so i'm hoping not.

    #2 should be accomplished in accordance with the ideas in this thread:

    http://www.weaponeer.net/forum/forum...p?TID=520&PN=1

    the fitted pin is removed with a punch, and the hole is reamed for a new, longer pin. adapting to a semi group is best done with the window idea, or with the transfer bar and strike idea in the referenced thread.

    have not had time to work on this at all, but have scheduled 2 weeks vacation during the X-mas holidays. maybe then.

    By going with a smaller ID, the original full auto bolt cannot fit. After converting to semi/closed bolt operation, the modified bolt is reduced in diameter to fit. Same reason the Uzi has a bolt blocking bar/slotted bolt.
