The purpose of www.stengun.dk is to show the effort the Danish Resistance made during the German occupation of Denmark 1940 - 1945. They produced more than 1000 copies of the British STEN submachinegun. This incredible achievement raised moral as well as it met the acute demand for weapons. In Copenhagen were established several illegal weapon factories, and they produced new weapons and repaired old ones. They also made caltrops and handgrenades - all at a very high risk.

On top: British STEN. Below Danish copy.
