"Bapty Extreme" Tunisian DLT with original parts.

Recommended Posts

I had read the thread of Jcalus with his Tunisian DLT 2.0. What a great built! I was so jealous! I have a real E-11 Sterling in my collection - but that's the cherry on the cake. I wanted the same.

And that's whatever I wanted to build. My "Bapty Extreme". Tunisian DLT with original parts - a beast is born.

This is my built:

I found some MG34 Parts for a good price. Barrel jacket, Bipo and muzzle cover.

The Grips are reproductions from Latvia.

For a stable hold, i made a socket:

Looks awesome! Really nice work.
They are heavy but feel and sound so good!
The longest I've trooped with mine was about 40min..

Now I need to get some real Sterling parts for my next Babty! Lol..

That's a thing of beauty!!! But it's still quite heavy with 5,7 kg... anyway, thanks for sharing and hopefully this will be an inspiration for others! :duim:

I completely missed this thread, glad I just found it!

That’s a amazing build, looks great! I might go for that route myself sometimes...
