    Well ~ maybe we could consider an Australian Owen ~ ( but that may ~ would be bordering on the fantasy World ~ )

    LOL ~

    It would certainly be amazing, considering the Owen used a proprietary magazine quite unlike a Sten mag -
    *BTW a pretty cool design, with the ejector block at the rear of the magazine itself - it ejects downwards.

    The Australian Owen SMG

    And the design had amazing service record ~ and was even taken to Vietnam by the Australian forces ~

    I have heard though they had an issue with flash back (??)

    The mag hanging in the tree is a mp40 mag...

    Ha ha - It absolutely could be an MP40 mag.
    Here is a slab sided MP40 mag from my collection next to a WW2 era Sten mag.
    It is really only a matter of determining width - I can't really tell from the pic of the mag in the tree - what do the experts here think?
    It would be fun for it to be a Sten mag, but is more likely an Mp40/41 mag.

    *Edit - Sten on left, Mp40 on right.

    You learn something every day ... Would have bet everything that being a sten mag ... Thanks!

    Guess we'll never know, i suppose it was left to rot there as it ain't such an interesting item. If it was taken away and cleaned, pictures with it would solve the model question...
