Ian of Forgotten Weapons has just published a new video on the early Sten guns – Mark 1 and Mark 1*.

YouTube link

He is promising to run through the series.

Almost as dangerous to the user or his companions as to the enemy. But cheap and easily made, even copied in primitive facilities.

Interesting video but forgotten weapon? Really?

"Almost as dangerous to the user or his companions as to the enemy. "

Yes, almost as effective as a grenade when clearing a room. Just toss the Sten in, and take cover… ;-)

20th. "Forgotten weapons" is the name of a series about all sorts of firearms. Some forgotten, some never heard of, some common , it's just a catchall title, for whatever strikes the mind of Ian, the host.
