The subject line says it all. I finally got my Sten. Now for all the paperwork.

Waiting for mine to come in too.
Machineguns are better than stocks and sex!

Ya know, before tonight I would be inclined to agree with you.
The FIVE women I had the pleasure of meeting last evening would change YOUR mind; as well.:D :D :D :eek:

I have been waiting for months on the dealer transfer on this. This is my first NFA weapon. I think I will have some fun with it, and now that I broke the ice with this one, more will follow. The only think I don't like about it is that it shoots to the left. Taylor obviously knew this because they mounted the front sight way off to the right on the reciever tube. I don't know what I am going to do about that, if anything. It would be nice if it wasn't like that, but it isn't going to keep me awake at night on a subgun.
Another picture attached. I am the one furthest from the camera with the hat on.

The reason it shoots to the left is the front sight is too far right (Move the rear sight in the direction you want the shots to go, so move the front sight the other way!) It doesn't matter, these are are area, not point weapons. Just enloy it!

Funny how something that is less than $50 takes so much hassle to have legally...
I'm waiting on saving for an Uzi or M16... I've bought a couple cans to tide me over tho...

What I really want is a couple suppressed .22s. But I figured that no self respecting gun collection could be complete without a submachine gun.

How ridiculous to have to go through so much hassle for a 9mm chattergun. Those things probably cost $50 to make, as was said, yet you paid who knows how much for a transferrable one.
At any rate, enjoy your purchase. Get a better stock on it! IMA has all sorts of STEN accessories, including mags, 50 round Lanchester mags, pistol grips, wooden buttstocks, loop stocks, etc.

I bought one or more of everything IMA had to offer for a Sten long before the gun came in. I stumbled onto 14 new mags the other day locally for $5.00 each.
Since you asked, the price was $2250.
