Do you have any material which shows that this grip was an SOE made item? I am not asking to be pedantic, I have a genuine interest in the SOE, MI9, etc and I have never seen a wooden pistol hand grip for a British MkII sten. I am aware of the metal skeleton version. The only sten I can find with a wooden pistol grip is a (wartime) copy made by a Danish company (Exhibition - Nationalmuseet )
Did the gun come with any history? (It's a very nice looking sten by the way)
Hi,Sorry I have only the info I have been told by two gun dealers about the Sten,They both told me it was an soe item,I have not had the time to research it myself,
I purchased the cocking handle seperatly as the sten did not have one when I purchased it,Any info that comes forward would be most helpful.
The STEN looks like a Enfield gun (Serial number would help confirm it) but it has been in Finish service, The Brits never ground the welds down afterwards whereas the Fins smoothed them off when they refinished them.
