That finish doesn't look original on it.
Original......Krylon gloss. Should have grabbed the satin!

I never found my STEN II comfortable to shoot with even the loop stock, so I came up with this. Works for me and I can change everything back to regular configuration is less than 30 seconds.

New here to the board. I have a Sten Mk2 that I was trying to find viable options for a pistol grip stock assembly without having to move the fire control group forward like the Mk5. One day I got bored and decided to see what I could cobble together in a day and cut/welded together a loop stock and a pistol grip.
I'll have to take some newer pictures after grinding and cleaning up the welds and blueing the attachment points, the only pictures I have right now are right after finishing up with the welding.
After playing around with it at several different positions, it felt more comfortable to flip it and utilize the comb of the stock on the underside, giving it a good angle and height and a nice little pocket behind the pistol grip for your hand....took it to one of the local machine gun shoots recently and surprisingly got quite a few compliments on it.

I put a MKV walnut stock on my MK2. Give it a bit more weight and I think it makes it easier / more fun to shoot.
I bought this MK V stock for my MK II and it appears to work perfectly:
Thanks for the suggestion in this post.

I bought this stock someplace years ago. Made from an Enfield rifle stock.
