What has your gun got fitted at the moment? Originally it would have been the Mk2 handle with no corresponding safety hole in the body. The Mk5 was a retro fit to the Mk2 so not all (But most) have the corresponding hole. At a guess, does yours have the Finnish round knob handle?

That will be an ex Finnish STEN, they fitted large ball like cocking handles for gloved hands. They also fitted sling swivels to the barrel nut and butt.

I have one of those Finish Stens. I also need to replace the knob and could use some advice on removing those sling swivels without causing damage to the Sten.
