The STEN or Sten Gun is a British submachine gun chambered in 9mm parabellum and it was made due to absolute necessity. After the disastrous retreat of British and French troops from mainland Europe, a huge number of weapons were left on the beaches of Dunkirk. At the time, British submachine gunners were usually issued with the American Thompson submachine gun designated the M1928 which was expensive, costing $200 in 1939 and about $70 in 1942 for the M1 Thompson. With a large amount of weapons left in France, the British had to come up with a cost-effective way to arm her submachine gunners. The STEN, an acronym derived from the names of the weapon's chief designers: Major Reginald V. Shepherd and Harold J. Turpin, and the 'En' stood for the Enfield factory. The STEN gun was simple to produce, with only 40 parts even bicycle workshops could churn it out for the war effort, and they did. The STEN would cost only 2.6 British Pounds or $11 per gun in 1942, which was even cheaper than the America M3 Grease Gun which cost $25 at the time. All this meant that the British could arm not just their armed forces, but the free French forces in occupied France at the time.

The Northeast STEN MK2 GBB Airsoft is a faithful replica of the World War 2 British / Commonwealth submachine gun, this particular model has the Birmingham Small Arms or BSA markings and it features the skeleton stock. Northeast has always come out with the most realistic classic guns, this is no exception, the Northeast STEN MK2 GBB Airsoft SMG is of full steel construction and has period period-correct parkerized finish just like the real thing. Other than the material used and its finish, the Northeast STEN also assembles and disassembles similar to the real thing, the only difference being that this model has a hop-up unit and an inner barrel. By purchasing one, you will experience this first hand as this airsoft gun arrives field-stripped and you will have to put it back together to operate it.

Northeast came out with the STEN gun and its many variants and graced the airsoft world with more classic gun replicas in GBB, so what is the difference between this 2024 version differ from the old one? Northeast redesigned the firing pin base and nozzle for an extended maintenance cycle, and it is also CO2 ready as Northeast will launch CO2 magazines in the future for the STEN gun similar to what they did with their UZI. They also redesigned the gas magazine so that it is easier to fasten the endplate of the gas tank to aid in maintenance.
