Sten submachine guns were developed by British Enfield Arsenal at the time when the British were in their most desperate time of the WWII. Very simple to manufacture and operate the Sten was needed to arm as many men as possible as quickly as possible.This 9mm submachine gun was employed by British paras, commandos and various resistance organizations in Axis occupied territories. Sten was sound design for the requirements and this was proved by the Germans who tried to manufacture Sten-like machine pistol late in the war.

The Sten Mk V was introduced in 1944 and it included for the first time several important wooden parts such as the stock. The front grip you see in this replica was only in the early production models and were removed from later versions for it's tendency to break. Internal parts remained the same in Mk V.

This is custom built replica which is based on Marui automatic electric gun. The conversion parts have been mass manufactured by Smokey in Japan and quality is up to standard. The model is no longer manufactured and is difficult to find.

AIRSOFT & AIRSOFT GUN GUIDE
Basic information about the hobby

Airsoft explained
Airsoft is paintball-type recreational game that is played in indoors (CQB), outdoors and at organized mass events that range from World War II re-enactment to fictional Special Forces operations. The common point of all of these events is the use of airsoft guns and airsoft gun accessories. Airsoft started as a hobby in Japan back in 1980s and is now common in many other countries.

Unlike in paintball BB hit from airsoft gun doesn’t leave a mark, but stings a bit. This allows use of smaller and more lightweight pellets that hurt less and make less mess. This also allows completely different design of the airsoft gun when compared with paintball guns. Many of our Japanese made airsoft guns are highly detailed products that have incredible attention to the detail. You will be surprised about how well some of these airsoft guns are constructed.

Airsoft guns explained
Airsoft guns range from affordable light powered 10-year old toy guns to serious hobbyist custom guns that cost several thousand dollars a piece. They are either spring, gas or electric operated and have special features such as various blowback mechanisms or accuracy barrels.

In most countries owning airsoft gun doesn’t require license or special arrangements.

Tokyo Marui Automatic Electric Guns explained
The Marui Automatic Electric Guns (AEG) are operated by central mechanism called Gearbox and electric motor that derivates from RC-cars. The electric motor uses small 8.4v battery as power source and rotates the gears inside the gearbox that in turn cock the piston back and release it forward in high repeating speed. This creates high rate of fire of about 750rds per minute with muzzle velocity of about 80m/s with 0.20g BB (264 FPS).

The typical accessories you need for airsoft gun
The basic items to have to get started are BBs, power source (battery or gas) and protective goggles or mask. If you use Tokyo Marui Automatic Electric Gun (AEG) you will need battery charger for the batteries unless you already have one. It is also good idea to have battery discharger to maintain battery lifespan by discharging the batteries before re-storaging them after use.

Maintenance and ease of use
Airsoft guns are quite maintenance free and simple to use. Occasional injection of silicon oil will be mostly enough and basic external cleaning after use in outdoors.

Safety
Fundamentally airsoft guns are designed for paintball-type gaming and hence are in safe power levels as long as protective gear is worn. It stings a bit through your clothing when BB hits you. Use of protective facemask is mandatory to protect face and eyes. The pellets are lightweight 6mm and 8mm BBs that weight typically around 0.25g each. Effective range is generally about 20 meters for pistols, 40-50 meters for submachine guns and 50 meters for rifles and machine guns.
