This is what we call a marvel of World War II innovation. After the war started, the British were purchasing as many Thompson guns as they could from the USA. The Thomsons, however, were both very expensive and in high demand after the American's entry into the war. As a result, the Royal Small Arms Factory (Enfield) was asked to produce an alternative.

And thus, the Sten was born. Affectionately referred to as a "Grease Gun", these minimalist arms were able to be turned out for the low cost of $11. They used simple stamped metal with minimal welding, and so these could be produced at the ferocious pace that the war demanded.

This particular Sten is a Mark II, which has a special catch to allow the magazine to be rotated 90 degrees so the gun can be laid on its side. Unfortunately on this particular example that rotating piece has been welded, but the rest of it is an old style cock & click deactivation. This Sten is field strippable, but is not able to chamber or fire ammunition of any kind.

Due to recent changes in legislation we require proof of a valid PAL to sell this. Failure to produce a PAL with an address matching the order will result in the order being cancelled.

Measures 78.5 cm x 27 cm x 23 cm.
