BACKGROUND: The "Sten" submachine gun took its name from the initials of the surnames of its designers, Shepherd and Turpin, and the Enfield factory where it was originally produced. Designed in 1941, using ideas from both the German MP 28 and MP 40, it was simple to manufacture and had a blowback system using a heavy bolt and a strong return spring. The Mark III was designed and manufactured only by Lines Brothers Limited in London. The first Mk IIIís were sent to units of the Home Guard and later sent to the front line troops with the infantry and airborne units until the end of the war.

Included is a leather sling. Cock but no click de-activation. Deactivated, no license required to purchase or own.
