A Chechen fighter holds up his home-made gun during the battle for Grozny, January 1995

The Sten is pretty simple to begin with. I personally know a few people who reenact WWII who have bought non-firing Sten guns (deactivated by the government or private individuals) and made them full auto submachine guns again.

Apparently it’s not hard to source a few parts, stamp some new ones (one guy welded his receiver back up….), and rivet it all back together. Then they take the barrel and drill holes in them, place steel rods throughout the barrel and weld those rods in place, preventing (at least in theory) a live round from traveling down the barrel.

It’s their way to get around the cost of a full auto Sten and blank adapting it. Still illegal, still unsafe, and most of the idiots who do this brag about their conversions when drunk.

Few years back, maybe 5 or 6, a guy got busted by the ATF at Fort Indiantown Gap (National Guard base in PA that hosts a Battle of the Bulge event yearly). He was bragging about having a full auto Thompson submachine gun he made (was a machinist so he basically milled himself a new full auto receiver) to some people at the local bar. One of the locals reported him to the ATF, the ATF arranged the purchase of the gun, and busted the guy for selling an illegal full auto out of the trunk of his car…on federal property.
