Designed in the mid-40s so British soldiers in Dr. Who episodes would have something iconic to shoot, the STEN (Sten gun) may be one of the most recognizable guns on the planet. “Garand Thumb” recently did a video about it. Scroll down and take a watch.
This particularly Sten gun was built from a parts kit by Foster Huntington (who sounds like an 18th-century British explorer) and suppressed with a silencer built by the same guy. History buffs and those with a militaria fetish or unnatural/sexual MILSURP fixation (looking at you, Bucky) will get a kick out of this. Note that this particularly STEN is a form 1 short-barrel weapon but is not select-fire (more’s the pity). These STEN mags were apparently purchased for this video., but we’re not sure where. We’ll ask him.
Here’s the video.
Check it out. Leave us a message about your favorite STEN gun movie appearance in the comments below.
Our favorite is prob’ly Farewell to the King, though to be accurate that was a Sten Mk III.
So is that thing practical? No. Tactical? Well, arguably, though less so than many other weapons. Do we want one? For fuck’s sake, don’t be a dumbass. Of course we want one…which is why we may have either Bad Moon Armory (our favorite Kentucky gun store) or Brothers In Arms (our favorite gun store in Tulsa) build us one. Assuming we don’t just put it together ourselves.
Anyway. Since that earnest young Garand Thumb feller put in some hard work on his video, we’ll give you some links you can use to support him (these are affiliate links).
