After 330+ days of waiting, finally I received my C&R STEN MKII (Long Branch 1945 made). I test fired 200 rounds, it worked fine except one issue -- It fires full-auto only no matter where I set that fire-mode selector. From the receiver opening, I feel the tip of that L-shaped disconnector being too low, and the bolt never touches the disconnector. I did not fully disassemble to take out the disconnector, but its exposed tip does not look being filed or worn... Was it out of factory like this?? No idea.
What should I do to fix this issue? Replace with another disconnector, or other solution?
[Edit] I start like Sten. Initially, I bought it mainly because its price tag was not that shocking (still very expensive given its cheap appearance, but more affordable compare with almost all other MGs). After firing this in range, I started loving it, its fire rate is reasonable, and it's accurate. Most attractively, the whole gun along with 3 magazines can be stored in a small pistol case. My wife could not believe the size, and asked me to open the case to see "how could that be possible" It becomes my favorite.
