Fascinating - does not delve into the 'personality' issues.
It's an hour and a half long - well worth the watch as it focuses on the technical issues related to the explosion.

Figured I'd offer it up here first - if any of you are interested, I have a deactivated MK 3 STEN that is surplus to my collection needs. T[/color]his came as a package deal with a Mortar that I got, and I already have a Canadian Mk 2 STEN in my collection, so, up it goes.
Up for grabs - A 185 series Ruger Mini 14.
Comes with 3x 5 rd factory magazines (with 3D printed extension baseplates) and 1x 5x30 (pinned) Thermold style magazine. As can be seen, I have what I believe is the factory scope mount with side-plate and thumb-screw, as well as a Bushnell 4-12...
