How does it work?
I've been looking for any information about it for quite sometime and yet there's so little mention about this MG. Any info will help. from wikipedia it is supposed to be based on the Dover Devil MG. Both MG have some sort dual feed capability and both are gas operated.
Judging by the M15A2 belt link used to feed this gun it's definitely a push forward type feeding mechanism and probably uses a rotating bolt mechanism.

I've seen that post on secretprojects and have done some comparison with the images and patents of the Dover Devil MG posted there. They both are completely different designwise. The only similarities between the two are the gas operating mechanism and the dual feed capability.

Take a look at that picture i posted. Even how the ammo belt positioned on the STK50 is different from the Dover Devil. Feed tray is also different. It looks like the right ammo belt feed is slightly above the left on the STK50.

Seen that video and the people there only done some shooting with it and nothing else. I'm trying to find any videos that shows the loading procedure or how they supposed to change between right feed and left feed.
