Sten MKII replica

Pic. 1. Sten MKII replica

For the fans of British weapons, we have prepared this attractive and meticulously produced Sten MK II replica. The original model is widely known and was produced on a grand scale in two million items. There were serious changes introduced with comparison to MKI. Firstly, they eliminated the grip and the flash eliminator. Secondly, the barrel sleeve was not as long as in the older model. What is interesting, there were also German and Canadian versions of MK II. The Canadian adaptation had better quality, and the stock was improved, as well. When it comes to the German type, the weapons were fitted with a wooden stock.

This is a replica of popular, British Sten Mark II. Sten Mk II is the most common version of this weapon, produced in 2 million pieces. This was a submachine gun used by British Army and Alliance Army during the World War II. 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 4 million Stens in various versions were made in the 1940s. They were notable for having a simple design and very low production cost making them effective insurgency weapons for resistance groups (in. ex Polish Home Army).

The submachine gun Sten Mk II is a weapon of effective range 180 meters. Magazine was 32-round for 9x19 Parabellum ammo. The muzzle velocity is 365 m/s. This was a weapon with relatively hard to handle. Left hand should keep the weapon by the barrel's cover. Firm, stable grip which requires strength from the shooter reduced the recoil and reached effectiveness. During the World War II some models was silenced.
