    As Englishman.ca mentions, we bought several thousand no4mk2 in the late 90s to supplement the existing stocks of rifles. I heard form a weapons tech friend in Edmonton around 2005 that they were...

    A quantity of the no4 rifles are being sent to Colt Canada for deactivation. They will be made available to CF museums. Not sure if any live ones are being offered,as crazy as that sounds.

    Agreed, they are hand punched. You can see where the tube is dented in from the stamping, and the stamps are all over the place for alignment. Also agree the C/i\ has the arrow upside down in...

    While I don't believe the term "sterling" was used by DND with regard to the SMG C1, the term 9mm carbine does tend to lend itself to the sten as opposed to the C1, which was more often referred to...

    One of those cases is on my "must have" unicorn list. I think I saw one sell on gun nutz years ago and it was sold by the time I saw it.

    A little convoluted there Sunray. Yes, tanks were about to leave the CF inventory back around 2006. At that time, Crown Assets was selling good running Leo hulls (turret and gun removed) for between...

    I have many thousands of demilled magazines, mostly struck with a hammer or an axe on the body somewhere. I have, on an as needed basis, cut the magazine bodies short so they have a 5 round capacity,...

    There were two mandrels involved...one that went into the magazine and one that is hit from the top to reform the lips. Marstar here in Canada had the sets as did BRP in the USA. I bought my set...

    I have that one listed on the 90L listing up in the sticky section. It is listed as anonymous, but I believe that rifle is in Canada these days.

    I, too, have paid the price for getting complacent and not controlling the rifle. Makes for a nice clean cut on the nose.

    The problem with things on collectors source (and likely the reason the link doesn't work now) is that much of their stuff is one-off, and not held in quantity. So the one dummy sten bolt may have...

    The rifle itself looks a little suspicious to me. I can't make out the serial number either, but the blurs that are there certainly don't look like a 90L8xxx serial number. No maltese cross on the...

    And confirmed...the barrel is 30-06. Hopefully the magazines and bolts will surface one day. I almost wonder if the bolt is the standard 8mm bolt, as was later used for the 7.62 conversions.

    I believe the mags are lengthened for 30 rounds, and also lengthened front to back for the longer 30-06 length.

    I spotted that same report in "the Bren Gun Saga". That is the gun that was crudely welded up with a spot of weld to the piston group underneath the area of the barrel nut. I may reverse that. I'll...
