The glorified history of the Second World War submachine guns is also represented by this AGM Sten Mk II submachine gun. Unlike the real gun, this shoots full auto only and it doesn’t have an actual safety. Like in its role model, you can fold the magwell down so that the feeding mechanism is protected. Hop-up adjustment can also be done with a hex key found on top of the gun when the magwell is folded down. The gun is perfect for different kinds of Star Wars themed games, because the Sten was used as laser blaster by the Stormtroopers in these movies.

The number-letter combination in the headline is the official name of the STEN submachine gun. The gun was born because of a miscalculation in the British army: on a foggy island they figured that an SMG is not an important gun on a modern battlefield and they only acquired a few Thompson SMGs for the army. After occupying France, they finally realized that the SMG might be of some use on the battlefields in the Second World War. However, after the war had broken out, buying guns was difficult. Thus, they developed a submachine gun that was cheap and fast to produce. The solution was sort of correct, because this way they got SMGs for all troops fast. This Mk II model was the most common model and over 2 million of them were manufactured. There are also versions of the Sten, which have better ergonomics and/or silencer. Actually, the Sten was the first mass-produced silenced SMG! Thanks to the gun’s simple structure there were plenty of copies of it made in occupied Europe and other countries.
In the 1950’s Finland acquired 75 000 mostly Mk III model Stens, which was the cheapest of the Sten models. The guns were fixed and modified for a Finnish cartridge. The Stens didn’t see a lot of action, because they were mainly held in storage.
Remember to get a suitable battery and charger
Battery and charger are not included with this gun. To make sure the warranty of your gun is valid, you may use 7.4V LiPo or 8.4V and 9.6V NiCd/NiMH batteries with a maximum capacity of 3100mAh. Using a battery with a higher nominal voltage or capacity voids the warranty.

Each gun individually tested by us:
The functionality of all our guns is tested and the muzzle velocity measured before shipping. The velocity is measured with a 0.20 g BB and the final muzzle velocity is calculated from the average of five (5) shots. In fact, the muzzle velocities you see in our online shop are approximations reported by the supplier or manufacturer. Thus, the actual muzzle velocity of your gun may differ from the approximation upwards or downwards. However, we always mark the final muzzle velocity on the maintenance and user manual provided with the gun.
