    Default Sten Machine Carbine Mk.5

    Acquired last weekend, and very pleased with it. Old-spec deactivated so cocks and dry fires.

    VS 249019 denoting first batch assembled at ROF Fazakerley; M/78 denoting housing manufactured by Elkington & Co., Birmingham; Butt, Mk.3 with early (pre-Feb.1945) brass Butt Plate; Butt Swivel, Mk.2 rifle-type; Sten Sling, Mk.3 hooked, Mills Equipment Company; Bayonet, No.4 Mk.3 marked M/158, manufactured by Lucas. The Butt is serial-matched to the gun and 74444 electric penciled out may suggest that it could have originally been fitted to an earlier third batch ROF Theale assembled Sten?

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Great photos!

    I've always had a weak spot for this particular version of the good old Sten.
    I think it is the wooden features that does the trick.

    Thanks for sharing

    Love it! Never knew you could attach a bayo to it.
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    A nice gun, but were it a working gun, and if you had the sling anchored where you have at the front, you would probably see the error of your ways at some point.
