OK, not really.  What I did do was build my 5 yr old a S&W look alike with 1" Sch40 PVC.  for $10 and a few minutes with a hacksaw and drill, you can make 2 pretty decent toy SMG's.  I still need to spray paint it.  There's nothing like your son telling you you're cool.  I used a T for the mag well and a T to mount the pistol grip.  I made it where I can take off the standard barrel and replace it with a silencer - 1.5 or 2" PVC.  I've not made the "can" yet.  I didn't use cement. The friction when you hammer it together keeps it together.  And if you twist the pistol grip 90 degrees, you get the Sten/Sterling look, and another 90 degree twist and you get the Austen?/F1 look.  Wasn't that the name of the Australian SMG with the top mounted mag?  I "ventilated" the barrel shroud with a 1/4" bit for that M76/M1919 look and put a "cap" on the end of the barrel and drilled it out for the "exit hole".  I should have made one of these a long time ago.  I used to make them out of wood.  New design - no splinters. Just remember to use your imagination.  If you don't like Smith and Wesson due to the sell out, call it a Carl G from your SF/Vietnam days.  I'm even thinking about putting a spring in it with a cocking handle and safety cut out ala Sten where he can at least pull back the handle and let it go.  He's already asked for a scope so I had to jury rig a zero power red dot sight on it(toilet paper roll and tape).

The owen??


Or the F1?

My Dad who was a blacksmith built me a nice M3 when I was a kid out of coke cans!!

It was beautiful!!

I built my son a Browning 1919 with spring loaded cocking handle and spade grips for the top of his slide tower on his play centre.

Yep, that's the one.  I used to be able to rattle off gun names like an encyclopedia.  I was just too lazy to stroll across the living room and pick up one of my reference books.  I was right about the F1, though.  It's the modern version.  I may do an M3.  It would be easy.  Just use a coupler and a smaller barrel.  The design today was just easy - only 1 size pipe to buy.  I already have a potato cannon.  Now that's a blast.  Pun intended.
