Just ageneral question...
Has any company ever made a Sten Mk V in 1-6th?
And if so, are they available at all?
I haven't found one in any searches...
Thanks,
Bruce

The DML Sten Mk5 that came with Ian and the carded Red Devil sets is probably your best bet - it's not spot on and the nasty elastic sling will need replacing but it's better than the 21st version which was also done. 21st have made versions of all of the Sten variants but the scale of their earlier attempts , which includes the Mk5, always looked a little off to me.

Thanks for the info;
Was the 'Ian' version a silenced weapon?
it looks like a combo MkIII/V...
I was wondering if a foregrip version with bayonet lug was ever made?
Like this one:

The Mk5 Sten was a "premium" version of the weapon , supposedly overcoming some of the shortcomings of the earlier weapons. It did this mainly by using solid wood stock and pistol grips but all this did was increase weight ( never a good thing for paratroops! ) when what really needed to be fixed was the poor magazine feed.
DML Ian is pretty much based on the above photograph and he came with a standard Mk5 Sten

Thank all of you for the help...
Never did pick up an Ian...by the time I had an opportunity to indulge my
Red Devil bashes, the nicer Soldat III was just being released...
I would LOVE to have two of those 'Ian' Mk Vs; i imagine all they would need is a sling replacement...
Thanks again,
Bruce
