    Christmas came early!

    After 15 months...she's finally home. Big thanks to KOMODOJ for making the stock adapter, it makes a huge difference.





    Going to chop and 3-lug a barrel for a silencer I have laying around until my integral silencer is done. Maybe a rail and a red dot.

    Thanks! I can't believe how nice it is to shoot. I bought it as my first machine gun on the same advice you did from collegeboy about how smooth it shoots, but even anticipating that I still expected it to "feel" like an old gun when shooting. It doesn't, it feels utterly modern and fantastic to shoot, the trigger is great, the ergonomics are absolutely fine once you figure out the optimal way to hold the gun. I think the Sten is massively undervalued compared to other machine guns.

    I'm smitten, it's going to get a rail and an MRO or T1 very soon. There's a couple local shops I'm going to approach about welding or soldering a rail onto the gun to see what they think.

    I wouldnt pay more than $3K for a Sten with stuff welded to it. But thats just me. Just somthing to consider if you care about resale.

    I would machine a clamp on mount.

    You may not, but I'm sure a ton of other people would. I would've paid a couple hundred more for a Sten with a rail soldered to it if there was one on the market.

    In general, I don't see that modification having hardly any impact on the value of the gun. It's a Sten, not a Thompson. Going beyond that, mine is a tube gun built by William Taylor, not an original C&R. A rail simply modernizes the Sten and makes it more useful. Let's face it, the iron sights leave something to be desired.

    Having said that, I truly don't plan on ever selling it, so the value is of very little concern to me. I just want it to be done well, and be minimally invasive. A couple spots of solder, not a 4" long weld would be my goal. I even considered epoxy and a plastic rail, but I think a couple spots of solder might be easier to remove if I really needed to.

    Griffin Armament's Sten looks awesome with a rail and T1:
