I have two Polish ones. They ok but one needed new spring and but of settling for my contentment, no big deals tho and very realistic after a bit of use. They are painted black tho instead of being blued.

He does every model of Sten available. Fully stripable, cycles even with a full mag (doesn't pick up rounds). Real mags fit, they break down like real ones to. And the finish is excellent.

I can't praise them highly enough. He builds them from factory plans. With a few minor changes to make them RIFs and not "live".

Don't think he does the Mk V does he Simon?

I asked him a while back, don't know if he's started making them now.

Having seen his MkII that Nick has, they are very good indeed.

All the best,
Matt

Looks like an impressive product, although I wish to he didn't refer to his wares as 'Mark Eleven' and 'Mark One Hundred and Eleven' Sten guns.
