    Thanks for that. I saw his review of the Owen earlier this year and was wondering when the Austen was going to come out.

    Looks very similar to the German "Grease Gun". Schmeisser?? Maybe they nicked the design? Or maybe OZ did since it was designed in 1938

    It suddenly hit me about it's name, Austen = "Australian Sten" & nothing to do with Pommy Cars. Slow? Me?


    schmeisser machine pistol - Google Search

    Looking at WW2 Warries it appears as though the Germans made it work as every man & his Schnauzer/Dobermann killed thousands.
