The MK3 was first introduced in 1943 being a simpler design than the MK2 but the Mk3 Sten gun had a very short production life of just 9 months. This Mk3 Sten Gun was manufactured by Lines Brothers Ltd and by far the most famous of all Sten Gun manufactures.
Lines Bros Ltd was a British toy manufacturer who operated under the Tri-ang brand name, but much more importantly in WW2 it was a manufacturer of pressed steel cars and trains. It had all the tooling already in place for Sten gun production and the skills to manufacture the Mark 2 and Mk3 Sten submachine gun.
Within weeks of receiving the British Government War department Sten gun contract Sten guns were rolling off the production line.
Fully strippable and dry firing, sympathetically deactivated this WW2 Mk3 Sten gun is in original war time condition.
