    I know what it is....... but what is it meant to show? A curved mag converted to Stem configuration? Better just convert an ultra reliable two stack feed Sterling magazine as shown in the book.

    It's for 7.62x25 high capacity. But it was equally just a project, seeing if it'd work.

    Thatís the type of mag I was told would have been used on my STEN but someone else has told me they think the version with the standard mag well used a standard mag with the rib cut out of the back and a flat plate welded in its place. Iím not sure how the follower would have looked though. Anyone got an odd looking sten mag with no rib??

    The Wise Lite Arms converted Sten mags work well. Back when Tok was cheap I used them a lot. Now 9 is cheaper than Tok and the WLA converted mags work just fine with it.
