    Anyone know what this SMG carrying case is for, it fits a taken down sten but is loose, it fits a MP40 but is tight, no markings other than written in pen "Parachute" on the inside flap. Canvas and leather with what looks like green blanco.

    Maybe a Sterling SMG?

    I don't think its for the sterling, the sten mag well can be rotated down but if memory serves me the Sterling cannot.

    But your link sent me to another interesting YouTube video, experimental Canadian weapons, the semi auto Ross and Enfield rifles was interesting.

    Unknown SMG case Empty Carry bag

    Good day Mike,

    Could the bag be for the Mark V variant of the STEN? It was produced with a wooden stock and pistol grip, and was issued to Paratroops in 1944. Maybe the design of that Mark allowed the butt stock to be detached and stored in the smaller outer pocket of the subj bag. With the word "parachute" on the inside of the flap, I could see it.

    My thoughts. Hope it give you another avenue to search.
