At the end of the war, Germany produced a cheap 9mm submachine gun closely based on the sten except with a vertical magazine.   I am including some pictures and information. This would make a nice build in semi as a rare gun with simple manufacturing techniques.

More images. This gun was found in a cellar more than 50 years after the war. No marking. Note simple welded assembly and easy to manufacture internals.

the second photo, of the german officer, he's holding a captured STEN Mk II with the magazine well rotated to the dust cover position... note the spring loaded ratchet and catch for the barrel nut instead of the sling loop on the MP3008

The third gun looks like one as well, but with the ejection port section opened up as a conversion to vertical feed...

Saw this photo in Michael Heidler article about stens for the Volkssturm.
Description says "SS-Obergruppenführer Artur Phleps, commander of 7th SS-Volunteer Division "Prinz Eugen", looking at captured in Yugoslavia air-drop Sten with magwell turned in transport position" (sorry for poor translation).

Same article is full of other great photos/illustrations(will try to scan some of them later) and even better text

I think you're right about the third picture, it has still got the STENs magwell locking plunger on the front of the magwell. If it has been converted to vertical feeding, the bolt would also need to be altered, although I think it would be a simple matter of rotating the STEN bolt 90 degrees, and remachining the cocking lever hole, and somewhere for the sear to engage with.

That prettymuch sums up the conversion.
The MP3008 was designed to use the MP-38/40 magazine, which is one way to tell if an example is a converted STEN or actual MP3008. The front sight is also another indicator. Notice the difference between the first photo, and the ones in the second post. The Magazine well also usually had a sling loop on the front.
