I could not imagine a worse combination for target shooting than a Sten gun and airsoft.
Airsoft is not accurate at the best of times. Sten guns are awkward to hold, aim and use.
If you want a WWII AEG get the Thompson from Canadian Tire.
If you really must have a Sten then go through the steps in the FAQ to be age verified and you will get access to a closed section of this site where the "where to buy" details can be discussed.
Airsoft, where nothing is hurt but feelings.

Sten Mk2 usually retail in Country for $300-350
$100-200 is Hong Kong pricing, you have to remember they don't pay much for shipping as the gun is made in mainland china just beside Hong kong.
It is what it is a pipe that shoots bullets (In this case plastic bbs)
It has no safety, the sights are a very crude peep sight.
This not a target shooting gun, it's a ok run and gun Submachinegun for closer range engagements. This gun has no safety or fire selector, it's full auto only.
The forearm is pretty wobbly it's held on by one screw.
The gun is made of regular steel for the most part, and stainless steel for the stock pipe. Mechbox is a derived from the m-14 v7 but has a proprietary shell. Some cleaning of the switch contacts needs to be done to make the gun reliable. The electrical switch on the Sten Mk2 is the trigger itself.
Hopup is adjusted via hex key from a hole when the magazine well is put into the storage position 90 degrees downwards.
It takes MP40 magazines of the AGM and Kingarm but not SRC brand mp40 mags.

Your media induced paranoia is interfering with my freedom.
