My 98 STEN Mark 5?

So I Have been working on a little build. I had an old 98 i picked up dirt cheap and wanted to make something out of it. I always loved the look of the sten guns and thought the 98 would be perfect. So i started working on it modifying the 98 and using a 1.5" PVC pipe for the shroud. Then I had a mamber on here draw up a magwell to fit the 98 and use tipx mags. (specifically the Zetamags). So after getting the magwel drawn up i had it 3d printed. And this is what i came up with.





Now this is reversed from the actual Sten, so it's made for lefties Still need to sand the magwell out some more as it was a little small inside and need to paint a few more things. Also i think i am going to get a fixed wire stock for it.

Link to updated model with ball release tab: https://www.shapeways.com/model/1582...s&materialId=6

I would like to give a HUGE thanks to mahonri85 for helping me out with the 3d CAD drawings.

I'm not a fan of PVC bodies (scratches too easy showing white through the paint) but, you did an amazing job there!

I would definitely be interested in a magwell for a 98 like that... I have had a similar idea in mind for a while, have it all done but the stock and the mag system
