THE STEN MACHINE CARBINE

The Sten Gun’s role in the Second World War made it one of the most famous weapons of all time. Extremely simple to strip and assemble, it was manufactured by the thousands. As well as becoming a standard infantry weapon it was dropped in huge quantities to resistance movements in occupied Europe, since as a light and easily concealable weapon it was considered ideal for use by civilians – including woman. Its weaknesses were as famous as its strengths – it was especially notorious for jamming. This is a reprint of the Gale & Polden pamphlet, published during the early years of World War 2, and aimed primarily at units of the Home Guard. Originally priced at 1 shilling and 6 pence (1/6), the pamphlet covers the (at the time) 3 basic marks of the STEN gun, stripping, re-assembling, loading and unloading, aiming and firing from different positions, stoppages and cleaning. Illustrated throughout with b/w photographs. NOTE; Whether a publishing error or intentional, these booklets contain 28 pages of text and pictures (the whole pamphlet as originally published) but also have an additional 9 blanks pages at the end.
