    Sten Gun Identification

    Can anyone help me identify this Sten Gun ?

    I`ve researched the SECO markings to S/109 Sterling Engineering Co.

    But the other that appears to be FG 22392 and somewhat unreadable &S 100 underneath.

    The gun can possible be from the Norwegianicon resistance or airdropped from Englandicon during the WW2

    Can someone help out a bit ?

    Regards Consolidator.

    FG indicates that it was a Fazakerley assembled and numbered Sten gun. You will be able to find out a lot more about your gun and Sten gun generally in a little book titled The Sten Machine Carbine published by Collector Grade Publications in Canadaicon

    Thanks Peter ,

    I don`t have access to that helpful book, unfortunately

    Does the marking &S 100 say something ?

    It would be very helpful if the serial number says something about the year of manufacture ?

    In advance , thank you very much.

    Can you post photos of the complete gun? The welds appear to have been ground smooth as found on the ex Finn guns.
