DTOM, I've read some of the articles on that site. The cartridge you show looks a bit longer than a 357 so you can expect some 1300J of energy from it. That will probably penetrate a body armor. I knew a guy with that name in the college, I wonder if that's the same Juha Hartikka.
Actually the open bolt Sten design is still valid, it's the ammunition / magazine that needs upgrading from pistol ammuntion developed in the 20th C.
Luckily the Finn, Juha Hartikka has already speculated on this - http://guns.connect.fi/gow/2030.html
With the sunk base "2030" concept cartridge, shown here in 9mm.
I would choose a suppressed Sten over a rifle in certain urban warfare situations - otherwise I would want something chambered in 7.62 Nato / 308 Win - with which I could also fire sabot rounds in other calibers.
As with all NWO proxy forces, shoot them in the groin and the hip.
They will bleed out, scream - block radio coms - and in the process demoralize their own.
Their body armor can be retrieved and put into use by the resistance.
Considering that even teenagers in the no-go zones in Sweden have access to assault rifles and wear body armor, sub machine guns are no match to the rising of the Caliphate. The resistance needs something more powerful. However, SMGs may have a role in some cases.
N.B - There are several PDF drawing packages for the Sten that are not entirely correct, so be aware.
For educational purposes only...of course.
Stens are fun, Sterlings are better :)
(Both are still available as parts kits in the US - but prices are rising.)
The magazine is the key thing with a Sten - the original single feed position type magazines are not the best - spring is heavy and they require a loading tool to fill to capacity - the 19 round Indian made Sten magazines largely solve that problem with brass rubbing strips - but a reduction in ammunition capacity.
I would avoid single feed position mags in general - so MP38/40, Sten, Vigneron in 9mm and the M3 for the .45ACP.
The superior Sterling magazines with its twin roller follower and wonderful spring assembly WILL work in a Sten, but it requires a modification to the magazine catch - it is described in Peter Laidler's Sten book.
For a scratch build, Uzi and Glock pistol magazines would be preferable for availability, functionality and cheapness, but the Sten design would it would require modifications to the magazine well and bolt.
DIY Sten gun complete instructions. I would modify the rough trigger and sights though. Try to find good steel for the barrel and the bolt.
Looks like fun shooting a sten.... aggressive little thing.
Yes, Denmark made weapons and ammo once but everything has closed now i think. Now they make missile guiding systems and advanced hardware for mostly american jets....F15 and F16 i believe it is.
It's a traditional craft in your neck of the woods!!! :D - http://www.stengun.dk/UK/uk-oversigt.html
What a great family Christmas project. :-)
