Not sure to be honest, I suppose its time to look on the swiss arms website and ask for model id's. Many though could be trials rifles and unaidentifiable without a visit to read the tags. Sounds like a good idea to me!4(T) said:Is the rifle to the left of the stg57 in fact a SIG SK46 or a later development?

Designed by Polish lt Podsenkowsky as a replacement for the sten carbines. The magazine fitted into the pistol grip. It was cocked like the M3 grease gun by sticking your finger into a hole through the cocking slot.
its rate of fire meant it was difficult to control which lead to its rejection.
I'd like to say the bolt carrier and assemblies from the 00 series of the EWS produced between 1972 - 74, the only problem is that the two holes that hold the bolt in the carrier appear to be as close as in the AR18. What is confusing is that cocking handle is clearly not an AR18 one and the Enfield cut and shut model used the same handle. This could mean that the carrier was canabalised for the 00 series or its the one from the Stoner 63 bullpup conversion in the MoD Pattern Room collection.HE117 said:As I say - it was a few years ago...
Not one of Herbies, though he may have got his mitts on it later. He was pretty good at that.
Not sure you have got the cocking action right, are you mixing it up with the BSA prototype? With the MCEM2 you just stick your finger in the slot at the top and pull the bolt back.
I think this was the first weapon to use the telescopic bolt. This design is still used by the Uzi, and the Berreta M12. It really does improve the balance as well as the length as well as giving some protection if there is a breech explosion.
OK Another one ... (Hold back a bit Ugly!)
