8 which type of sten is good and which ones to stay away from?I like the skeleton stocked ones the best.

I haven't seen a Sten kit in years...
I don't know if there is a legal Sten you can build, as the template for the reciever tube will be for the NFA full auto version, based on the one kit I saw about 22 years ago. Good luck on finding the stuff! I think there is/was a company making semi-auto Stens, disremember the name.
