Ok Im thinking about getting a sten mkIII to tuck away for a rainy day when Im bored. Does anyone have experience with who seems to have the best demilled kits around? i know some are saw cut and others are butchered like some ak kits. Does anyone have good prices on these? Thanks for any info you can provide.

You might also check prexis-sten, stenparts.com, semiautosten.com, and even cheaperthandirt.com has them. I know there are others, but those are just off the top of my head.

Cheaper than dirt claims they cant be made into a working firearm, leading me to beleive they have cut off a certain section I was reading about called the "ears" that makes them a no-go. Does anyone have any info about this? Its also possible theyre just saying this in the same blanket manner that "AK parts kits cannot be made into a working firearm", which many of you here would beg to differ.

You can build a sten without the ears, I bought alot of them from tapco a year or so ago. I like the ones with the bronze bolt, you can polish the heck out of those things. I prefer the ones with the ears though so I can use my spot welder to join the tube. As for the magazine housing that has to have a bead welded on it.
