there was a 2 parts article in the shot gun news the last few months. it has lost of info on a semi build. also you can go to semiautosten.com and buy a semi conversion kit. act fast onthe conversion kit cause rumor has it they are selling out thier inventory and not making more. i do know a guy that is trying to buy out the semiautosten people but nothing so far.

It is legal to make one..... but ya have to modify the hell out of the internals, making it unreliable and PERHAPS unsafe.
Also you need to permanently LENGTHEN the barrel to be legal.
Ya wind up with an ugly, clumsy, unreliable and posibly dangerouse weapon.
Not worth the effort in my opinion.

Look into the yugo m56, still not great but BETTER

On www.weaponeer.net we have a lot of information on building STENs, M31s, M56's and more.

The most complete semi conversion is the M56 and the bolt mods are a work of art, and it works great.

The bolt modification used for the M56 can be applied to most tube guns with great success.

The Sten could be built just like the M56 using the original fire control group (with minor mods), or with the AR15 fire control group.

The hammer and springs used in the Semiautosten conversion are worthless. The bolt is a nice design, but incomplete due to lacking an internal striker.

The SAS3 hammer springs weaken rapidly, which makes it unreliable. The above designs do not have this issue and use common springs.

The SAS3 tube works fine for the Sten conversion. if you use another tube make sure it's a reduced diameter tube to prevent the installation of the FA bolt.
