    Sten Gun loaders

    Post by Antarmike on Mon Dec 26, 2016 6:56 am




    Belgian Sten gun manual I have seen illustrates box type loader (2nd from left) but where any of the other type of Sten magazine loaders used by Belgian forces?

    Left hand loader and magazine at the front are of course Vigneron,

    Any help tying down which of the other loaders pictured, if any, where in use with Belgian Forces.

    Thanks Mike.

    As shown in my copy of the manual



    The Portugese manual shows the same Vigneron Loader



    Portugal is one of a very few countries apart from Belgium to equip with the Vigneron M2.

    Interestingly both manuals I have for the Vigneron show a Sten gun sling being used.
