Yes but most special forces used the Thompson smg as it was a much better gun

The sten was more widely used by resistance forces as it was very easy to strip and hide and easy to maintain and use, its use in standard units was as a house clearing weapon it only has an effective range of 100m.

You can get gun wall mounts, and I'd not them then use fishing wire and a hook?

Cheers apparently it's from the 20's but has had ceremonial grips attached.

Although I've had to get some rust off the blade and re-polish the sheath.

Nice, I won't comment on the colour! In terms of mounting just look around I'm
Sure they'll be mounts big enough for an assault rifle espaically in the states!
