Up for grabs is my Hudson Sten Mk2. It comes with 40 new style Hudson cartridges, 39 of which work (one needs a new plunger) and have only been fired just a few times. It has had a stainless steel tip machined on to the bolt face thanks to one of the excellent members of this Forum, so no worries about feed rails breaking.

Problems: I snapped the barrel clean of recently when it fell over. I repaired it, but this didn't quite work out as intended and the barrel sits at a slight angle.

On semi auto the gun fires a little erratically as the selector sear sometimes jumps prematurely. It does fire Ok though on semi and no problems with full auto.

I am unable to post pics on here as limited to a smartphone, but anybody interested please message me your email and I'll send some pics over.

Was looking for 275.

I've still got this and will take offers on it. The bolt is its biggest asset and worth 75 on its own, I'll take 200 posted, gotta be worth that for spares at minimum. Comes with 2 mags, 39 cartridges, box and a bit of caps.

After firing 32 off today without problems or jamming - Ive decided to keep it for the sake of 200 odd quid. I still maintain though, these are made of toffee...

Dont blame you on keeping it, selling at too low a price is heart breaking at times, plus once you sell you regret it.

Hi mate - this is the 'Bagpuss' of my collection, old, probably more than a bit tired, certainly battle scared and patched up. I guess 'Emily loves him' really though, ha! 😉
