In addition, Resistance groups in occupied Denmark, Norway and Poland produced hundreds of clandestine Sten copies and clones. Even the Germans themselves produced several models, including an exact copy called the Potsdam Gerät. In more recent years, several commercial manufacturers in the United States have also made copies of the Sten. --This classic, in-depth study includes clear photos of all models and markings, and provides identification of all gun assemblers, component types and manufacturers.
