You missed the gas system.

Or is it blowback?

Almost all submachineguns are blowback. Especially this type of stamped, quick-manufacture open-bolt gun.

i like the old fashioned, simple,  stamped steel look of the gun. i guess this gun is made for massproduction.

Yep, it's of the STEN/MP-40/M3 era, designed to quickly bring a nation into WWII readiness.

Actually very different. The MAT is a rectangle profile SMG.

Nothing like that cheap-mass producible submachine gun look. I like it.

Also, what did you use to make it?

I do find a perverse enjoyment in these stamped steel weapons, as opposed to my normal MagPul-laden preferences.

I usually use wooden stock types of things, but dabbling in these is sometimes fun.

Not a big fan of wood personally, except on fancy pistols or revolvers, prefer synthetics and polymers or good old Bakelite and stamped steel.

I guess I'm just old fashioned. I think the wood just gives something to the weapon that nothing else can.

There is jut something appealing in the cheap, mass-produced feel of guns like the Sten.

Is it called stovepipe because it stovepipes?

Nope, the weapon was extremely reliable, for an open bolt SMG. It used an ejection flange similar to that found in AKs, and was known for spitting out cases rather violently. Most jams were caused by failure to come into battery as a result of foreign matter entering through the open bolt or through the charging handle groove. It was nicknamed Stovepipe because near the end of the war, when steel became scarce, they started making the barrel shrouds out of recycled stovepipes, as well as it's physical resemblance to said item.

Oh I was unaware it was a real weapon. I just thought you invented a sten/thompson fusion.

Oh no, I invented it. I just invented a crapton of history for it too.

Oh right :P I knew it was your invention because of the ammo then you confused me. It does seem similar to a sten in design principles.

I was under the assumption that it was called a "stovepipe" because it was the choice weapon of the reanimated corpse of Abraham Lincoln.
