The Sten was a British submachine gun that was extensively used by British and Commonwealth forces during WWII. It uses a 9mm cartridge which was convenient because the Germans did as well making it easy to find ammo. A temperamental and ubiquitous beast of a gun it gained a somewhat mixed reputation by the forces at the time. It's design, although simple, was quite effective.
