Funnily enough I was looking at those and if they'd come with the wooden (or decently done plastic) holster, may well have ponied up for one.Get an gasblow back Airsoft one. Only cost you about 100 and you can plink in the back garden.

It had a reputation for jamming - maybe anecdotal.One event isn't evidence, no one even knows why it jammed, could have been operator error ?
I don't know about unreliable in that instance but it has been recorded that the Czech guy using it had modified the Sten to shorten it.
Aluminium?No these are ones that submerged or maybe degraded and spilled their contents. They are a major hazard if you’re building offshore structures or laying cables. Some very large German ones made of aluminium which can be a bugger to find if submerged.
My colleagues in the "Erl" business (90's) amid the sandy wastes of Libya told of numerous WWII mines still apparent about the dunes and that the worst to encounter were the French made units as they had an outer case made of Aluminium and thus in good operating nick even after all those years and just didn't rust way like those cheap British steel-cased ones!Makes them very hard to detect so a very potent weapon.
By coincidence the hit was 78 years ago yesterday, 27 May 1942. Operation still remembered in Cz Republic with great pride and sorrow in view of the Lydice atrocity. Pride that they were hitting back, the team are regarded as national heroes.
the STEN was considered perfectly fit for service. Once the war was out Of the way, the Army ran a Trial o’ truth with some new SMG contenders to replace the STEN. The verdict? Yes, the Patchett that had been in limited service since 1944 was better, but not so stellarly so it warranted the prompt dumping of the STEN for it.One event isn't evidence, no one even knows why it jammed, could have been operator error ?
