    I think RRPG is referring to the projectiles not the round when he says that Ball and tracer projectiles are legal, which he is correct. A complete round is classed as live under section one or five...

    It should be like WallyG has said however if the gun is a reweld or with a combination of different calibre parts then who knows. You could try a thin layer of putty on the barrel breech face and...

    If youíre using an original Mk2 in .303, you wonít get a metric FAL mag to fit, the body needs some serious modifications for it to fit. Just stick to the ZB39 mags.

    Iíve just seen that Apex in the USA has found in his recent mass purchase, a No4 sniper chest. Any one know why it would be painted yellow? Heís likely open to offers/willing to sell if anyone in the...

    And when they do come up for sale they are very expensive!

    These 1919 double size cutaways appear to be based upon 1919A6s but I never see them with a bipod.

    Wow, I read the 78í/79Ē as 78 foot to start with.

    Itís my gut feeling that this is a repro, someone in Europe was making these to original specs and were fully functional. Some were imported and deactivated and offered on the collectors market. I...

    All production Sten barrels were of the same diameter stock, the Mk2 and Mk5 guns had the barrel bushes pinned in place. Machine time was the main cost in wartime and minimising waste. To machine a...

    The Mk1 Bren magazine had the same issue and if you can find a very rare Mk1 mag, they usually display dents to the front. The Mk2 mag (Or Moded Mk1*) had a an auxiliary spring at the front which...

    Middle one is not British and appears to be a modified Possibly French barrel judging by the chamfered chamber end.

    I can see no reason for them being different, as far as Iím aware the only difference is the overall thickness/width of them. The Mk3 is narrower to match the narrower housing.

    What happens if you push the front of the bolt down as you push the bolt forward?
