    You know how they classify stuff, Peter. To them a receiver (body) with no other working parts is classified as a gun. (Can you imagine someone trying to rob a bank with just a receiver?) They use...

    “It will not reduce any noise its a replica.”

    Thanks, Peter.

    A “Stenling” is an American combination of registered Sten receiver tube and a Mk4 Sterling “parts kit.”

    Yeah, the real grease gun mags work fine, as long as they are clean. The Cobray .45 ACP magazines can have feeding issues. After a while the presentation angle becomes too high and they need a little...

    It uses modified M3 mags. I will probably fix it so they don’t need the mod. They still work in the M3 but they feel loose and rattle.
