4. The magazine housing marking is “STEN MK II” on the top and “HF & CO. LTD”(magazine housing maker), arrow mark, trade mark and “FK73587”(Assembly in ROF Fazakerley ) are underneath.
The STEN (or Sten gun) was a family of British submachine guns chambered in 9ï¿½?19mm and used extensively by British and Commonwealth forces throughout World War II and the Korean War. They had a simple design and very low production cost, so they were also effective insurgency weapons for resistance groups.
STEN is an acronym, from the names of the weapon's chief designers, Major Reginald V. Shepherd and Harold Turpin, and EN for Enfield. Over four million Stens in various versions were made in the 1940s.
This GBBR from Northeast is a lifelike and highly accurate reproduction of that iconic submachine gun for the 1940s. The operation is exactly like the real one and it feels very good in hand due to its full metal construction. The gun has the ability to shoot in both semi and full auto which offers a very satisfying kick and can easily be taken down to a more compact carry form. This particular version of the Sten features a skeleton stock instead of the more recognizable T stock.
