No answer below the fold because you all know what it is. Despite their current assholery, Brits made some pretty awesome firearms back in the day.

There was a time when we made the M1A1 Thompson submachine gun. There was also a time when we needed to make a cheap easy to break down version that still fired .45 rounds but was less complex. The M3 grease gun was made for this purpose. And it delivered.


OH okay, below the fold.


STEN is an acronym, from the names of the weapon's chief designers, Major Reginald V. Shepherd and Harold Turpin, and EN for Enfield. Over 4 million Stens in various versions were made in the 1940s.

9mm killin machine.
