Used extensively by the British and Commonwealth forces throughout World War II and the Korean War, the Sten (or Sten Gun) is a family of British 9mm submachine guns. Designed in 1940 by Major Reginald V. Shepherd, and Harold J. Turpin, over 4 million variants of the Sten were manufactured.
The name STEN is actually an acronym derived from the names of the chief weapons designers; Major Reginald S>herpherd and Harold Turpin, and EN for Enfield.
The AGM AEG replica is based off the most prolifically used Versions of the Sten gun, with over 2 million units produced, the Sten Mk. II. Just like on the real steel Mk II, the AGM Sten Mk II features a special switch which allows the magazine housing to be rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise allowing the gun to lie flat on its side.
The barrel sleeve of the Sten Mk II features 3 holes equally spaced at regular intervals on the shroud, and uses a Strut Type stock. Although it may look a bit awkward, the AGM Sten Mk II is surprisingly comfortable, and just like the real steel Sten the AGM replicates, is made completely from steel.
Overall Length: 770mm (30.5 inches)
The AGM Sten Mk II comes included with a 7.4v 2-cell Lithium Polymer Battery as well as a Charger.
