Hey WW2 Fans, today i will show you my new Sten Mk. II configuration with a real steel No.4 Mk.I stock attached.... And some other goofies :P

Also worth noticing, i made another barrel thats about ½" longer than the original in black anodised aluminum (made 100% from scratch) to cover up my new prometheus inner barrel.

Picked this up for £200 as it needed a bit of work. I stripped the finish off the wood and refinished it with linseed oil. Internally it had a bad airseal but all sorted now.

strange i had that problem before the addition of the silicone ( which was why i added so much of it )

still perhaps i was doing something wrong in re-assembly!! more skilled hands than mine i guess!

i have much to learn!

kudo's to you anyway dude!!

oh, yay, someone bought a snow wolf. i have been waiting to ask this question for a while:

 

does it have a micro switch for the trigger? 

 

i really hope not because that would make the only one without one the ICS model and i hate the grease guns with those fiddly cocking handles. besides the atrocious battery space.

I dont know yet, havent field stripped it but dont think so. Feels like a regular aeg switch.

 

But its a great gun this far, i give it a 8 out of 10!

Real heavy and solid peace made out of steel with acurate green/grey finish unlike the ICS failing black one.

you can tell if it has a micro switch is it makes an obvious click when you pull and release the trigger like an ARES AEG. i was thinking that this was the new S&T grease gun because they have the same battery space and advertised mag capacity. plus, some shops have the S&T and some shops have the SW, but i haven't found a shop with both. and with S&Ts track record, its a copy of the ARES version that has a micro switch except that they moved the battery space.

GRIM! I haven't seen you posting in a long, long time!

 

Beautiful Grease Gun you've got there! Are you going to do some artificial weathering or get the look from use over time? If I remember correctly, you had a number of AKs with outstanding weathering, the best I've ever seen!

That grease gun is really nice.

 

Very tempted to pick one up to try and make a Polish B?yskawica from it as it already has the vertical mag and tube body.

 

I was considering using a Sten for the base but that would mean going in spinning the internals to face downwards and cutting a new magwell. Though that would be slightly more period accurate as the B?yskawica was at least partly made from original and copied Sten pieces, it would also be a tad more technical than just doing some cosmetic surgery to a grease gun.

 

Before that of course I'm trying to fix the fire selector and safety on my ASG Stg44 which has decided to be very tempermental at switching between semi and full and all but refuses to go into safe.

 

Again not wanting to be too technical with the fix, I've already managed to lose a small spring and bearing (they were in a very superfluous position inside the selector switch and dont actually do all that much but I've ordered a bag of replacements which should fit and give me a lot of spares incase it happens again), I'm probably just going to use plasticard to extend the selector switch deeper into the gun so it makes better contact with the selector plate.

 

If it turns out to be an especially frankenstein looking job I'll be sure to post some pictures.

As far as i understand S&T and Snow wolf are the same, just rebrand.

Damn! the trigger does klick, how can i have not noticed this before? :S How ever it doesent bother me. How would this be bad?

 

 

Moose: Yeah, crazy long. My local arena closed down and i lost my job so i pretty much sold all my stuff.

But things are starting to look brighter and a new arena opend in a city nearby so im starting again with cheaper stuff. Still got my AKM left but sold the rest.

Doing a Heat movie gear now. Will post pics any day now.

 

I tried weather this some but it have a coat of black color underneath and quickly reachers to shiny metal so im taking it slow on this one and let it age by play. Its alot easier weathering the inokatsu aks wich have better color/finish on.

Id like som rust on it tho, so im thinking of maybe take out the gearbox and stuff and pour som water or coca cola on and let it lay outside for some day or under ground as i did with some of my AKs.

its not necessarily a BAD thing, but as a tech that likes reliability over everything else, micro switches aren't quite so useful to me. plus they dont respond well, for the most part, to mosfets. i planned to install a cheetah 2n from extreme fire in order to program it to semi auto during indoor days (especially since i will be working at an indoor arena soon and its where ill get most of my trigger time most likely). and since i have actually witnessed how bad micro switches bounce and effect fire control from the mosfet, i just cant play around with guns that have them.

i guess i still have to get the ICS. its not so bad, i just like the snow wolf a lot more.

Inkall, if you're planning on doing a blyskawica you'd probably want an MP40 as a base gun, the real blyskawica used 9mm rounds so the .45 magazines of a grease gun will look all wrong. It'd probably be easy enough to make a tubular receiver with MP40 internals (quite cheap too).

 

Surely for WW2 stuff it's unnecessary to age the grease gun? It would have been new toward the end of the war.
