I am such a dummy... Not you Buddy H. lol
Friend is getting ready to buy his first MG and was looking closely at a sten. I have a M11 and been trying to get him to buy a MG for the past year and a half. He has been saving his pennys and I have been helping him look for stens. Well we ran across a sten tube that was posted on here about a year ago at a gun shop close to us in GA. The sten tube has long been sold but it has gotten both myself and him talking about a stenling builds.
Seems like picking up a registered tube for $4.5k spending another $500-1000 on a nice sterling kit the have someone build it out (for some amount guessing $1500-2000) and poof you have a 15K gun is a no brainier. But there has to be more to it than that. If that was the case I figured there would be alot more of these conversions taking place and all of the raw registered tubes would have all been built out by now. What am I missing? Open to reading past threads if this has been discussed before. Just post me the links.
I am just here seeking knowledge. I am new to the game only one MG in & over 2 years of reading and looking and just trying to learn as much as I can.
