    You most definitely will need a speed loader if you get a chance to use it. The are a pain in the thumb without them!!!!
    Nice snag Ben. You can't beat that when you win helping somebody else out when they can't have them anymore. Does it have any letter # markings on it?

    Nice unmodified mag for a Sten. If you come across ones with two brass pins through the base they are post war modifications.

    That's like asking "what's the difference between M16 and M4 magazines." There is no difference; they're the same magazines.
