Just a small thing, The Sten Mk2 was more commonly issued with a T stock, which is pretty much a piece of pipe with a small plate welded to it. The "wire" stock that you all have was mostly issued to special ops, and even then, many didn't care for it because it wasn't a very good club.

Not to flame you, but if I get what you mean I understand that you want it replaced with your T-stock? Good idea, but we should keep it on on certain maps.

Can't imagine the metal wire stock would be very comfortable anyway. It's not that much of a change, yet why not? If it can be done very quickly....

It wouldnt be much of a difference, and you'd hardly even notice it. Not top of the prioritory list, but if it's simple to do then yeah why not.

I'd rather they get the ammo clips fixed first. I dont know why, but they look so weak compared to the quality of the rest of the Sten model and skin.

I agree the Britisch Sten mk 2 should get a T stock, but the Canadian Sten mk 2 should keep the wire stock, cuz they made their own Stens, and thought the wirestock was better.

That's true, it looks like the skin on them isn't aligned properly.

well, I noticed it the other day when I was checking out the FH website. I went back through some of my old British Sten manuals and found that the T-stock was cheaper to make, and was less likely to bend when using as a club, or when parachuting. Well, the mod is aiming for accuracy to WWII, so I thought that I'd point it out.

I think the wirestock was handier to use as paratrooper because the T-stock probably got stuck behind clothes and equipment...

This is incorrect, the sten MkII was issued with a wire 'outline' stock, The MkIII had a 't' Stock

mk2s were made with both varients.

mk3 was pretty much the same as the mk2, exept you couldnt dismantle it. There is also a finger guard on the ejection port to prevent the firer's fingers from wandering into the opening and getting hit by the bolt.
