    The shank of the screw needs to be large enough that one half of it is engaging the collar, and one half engaging the bushing, with enough engagement to hold the barrel in. I suspect that a number 10 screw would work. Original would have been BA; perhaps a 10-24 05 10-32 would suffice. Or a 8- could be tried.
    The reason I ask about registration status is that this thread is about making a legal reroduction of the Sten. Not entirely convinced that posting a photo of a currently unregistered gun is all that helpful.

    It is a legal reproduction. How the hell is anyone going to get a gun registered without making one first ?

    Making guns is legal in Canadaicon.

    PS, I am not 100% sure that the screws should be seen from the top. The barrel retaining collar on the MkI* is slightly different from a MkI. I would like to see a good photo of a MkI* before installing longer screws from the top rather than underneath..

    That may be, but I DO NOT want pics of HOME MADE basement efforts on this site.

    That may be, but I DO NOT want discussions of HOME MADE basement guns on this site.

    What was the agreement I said "YES" to when I joined? (click here)

    I think this thread, although interesting to some folks, has wandered off the primary mission statement of this site, clearly agreed to when people join. This site is about the collecting of old military surplus firearms, accessories, ammunition, and accoutrements, not about how to build your own home made firearms and get them registered.

    Thanks, but it's time to get back to our knitting ...

    Thread Closed !
