Before the STEN MK.5 can be fired, the user is required to, as with the MK.2: flip up the magazine housing, put in the barrel nut catch and plunger.
The reproduction of the grips was obtained by measuring from real steel parts. The grips provide better ergonomic handling compared to the MK.2.
The one-piece wooden stock is covered in a water-proof wax. After wiping off any excess factory-finished wood wax oil, you’ll be left with an even nicer looking wooden stock, of the quality you would expect of a Japanese-made replica. On top of that, the end plate of stock is made of copper, like the real thing. This is true craftsmanship from Northeast Airsoft.
This is a HEAVY gun though, weighing in at approximately 4KG, because of the steel and wooden parts.
Like the MK.2, this fires from an open bolt. You can pull up the cocking handle into this notch to make the STEN safe.
You can also make it safe when the bolt is closed; just push in the cocking handle when it’s in the forward position.
It really is a fabulous addition for hardcore airsoft collectors! All the parts for the adjustable front sight are made of steel and stamped with lots of markings.
The barrel nut (hand guard) is secured by a heavy-duty thread, like the MK.2 STEN.
The steel parts are stamped and welded, as solid as a rock like the MK.2 STEN.
A close look at the M/78 marking and serial number on the underside of the magazine housing.
This copper end plate is a decent vintage reproduction. The cover lid can be flipped up, but it is a little difficult to do.
