    Britishicon made casing but the mag housing, looking at the underside is so bad, even by Sten standards, that I think that it is Pakistani. No markings underneath and just look at the size of the rectangular slot for the mag catch to go through. The catch would be a totally sloppy fit - as would the magazine! Or as we would say, like throwing a sausage down the high street........, although I don't suppose that they throw many sausages in Pakistan! That mark on the breech block is a crown on its side

    Just my 2p's worth

    Only Quorn ones Peter!

    I'm amazed that anyone would go to the trouble of making a new mag housing for a Mk5, when its so simple to strip one from a surp mk2 Sten, they must have been knee deep in surplus Mk2 Stens in the 1960's!
