Remember that .22LR X95 conversion that Dylan made? Well, that is not the extent of his DIY skills. He made his own Modernized Sten 2.0. If you recall, I posted about a modernized Sten over three years ago. Funny enough, Dylan says that build inspired him to make one with his own twist.

Dylan has actually built a Sten before but it left him desiring more. More gun and more challenge. You can see some progression above. After seeing the other modernized Sten, Dylan decided to tackle his own Modernized Sten 2.0.
It was a modern sten built with “modern” tools lol. I cad/cam a bunch of the parts. Then cnc cut them out
Look at his receiver tube below. Looks like the makings of a lightsaber.
Below you can see the bolt handle and firing pin.
Here is the bolt with his custom CNC bolt handle.
Probably the most intriguing feature of Dylan’s Modernized Sten 2.0 is he was able to use an AR-15 FCG in this Sten build.
He trimmed the trigger bow and hooked up a linkage to the Sten 2.0 trigger.
Here is a video he shared with me.
From the top photo, you can see he added a free-float handguard and Picatinny at the top as well as the back of the receiver for adding a brace or stock if he SBRs it. I like the resto-mod approach to his Sten 2.0. It has a Star Wars vibe to it, probably since the Sten looks similar to a Sterling. I am eager to see what else Dylan comes up with next.
