    The STEN MK.2 Long Branch Airsoft replica is modelled on the Canadian manufactured version (1941-44) of the British Mk.2 Sten which was made by Small Arms Ltd in Long Branch, Ontario as an back-up reserve of firepower to assist in finishing the war. Almost 150,000 were produced at a reported cost of $9 each.


    It was similar to the British-made Mk. 2, using interchangeable parts and components, but made with smoother edges, better tolerances, and an overall higher production quality. Some features that identify a Canadian-made STEN are use of spot welding (instead of arc welding) and the finished weld on the magazine housing being polished, as seen on the STEN Mk. 5.


    The total number of production units was 149,905 guns, distributed as following:


    Canadian Forces: 65,160


    UK: 9,781


    Mutual Aid, Republic of China: 72,882


    Mutual Aid, USSR: 2


    Mutual Aid, Free French: 1,400


    Other: 680


    Many didn't make it to Europe as they were lost at sea as a result of the German attacks on merchant marine ships supplying the Allied Armed forces.
