Hey fellas how to figure out when a original sten gun was made is there a List that you just go off the serial number to find the date or is it not so simple I looked for a little while to day and couldn’t find anything that could lead me in the right direction. 

Thanks for all your help in advanced fellas

Most likely in WWII is a bout as close as you can get.   the guns were made in small separated factories.  You might try looking in the book by Peter Laidler on the STEN.  The STEN Machine Carbine is the title I think   I don't remember if the book has production data, but you might be able to ID what factory assembled the gun  and make some guesses as to when it was built.  This assumes the STEN is an original C&R gun and not a parts kit or "built" gun.
