The Danish STENguns

The Danish Resistance produced more than 1000 copies of the British STENgun Mk. II in their illegal weaponshops. On the following pages you can see some examples of this production.

It was mostly in the Copenhagen area this production took place, and the most wellknown groups, copying the Sten, were "BOPA" and "Holger Danske". As most weapons sent in from England came not until the last year of the war, it was for a long time difficult even to find a STEN that could be used as a model.
