    The US hasn't had them in inventory since the 90's, the Philippines and some other nations still use and modernize them from ancient donor stockpiles.

    I heard that they’re still occasionally used by armored vehicle crews, especially since they’re more compact than an M4. Although they look crude and outdated, the M3 is actually a really well thought out design (other than the charging handle on the early models). I’m pretty sure it’s a case of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, and “idk it just came the tank”

      They were all supposed to be removed from service after the Gulf War, but I believe some NG and Reserve tank units had them locked away deep in their armories until around 9/11

      In terms of ancient small arms that are confirmed to still be in use, the Air Force still issues an original Colt 603 as a DMR to missile security at one of the nuke bases, I think it was Malmstrom. Note the armory bar code on the magwell

    "In service" on Wikipedia means it's used by at least one military power. The Mosin is still listed as "In service" for example.
    Though the M3 did have an unusually long service life in the American army, mostly as a crew gun for tankers. Though Delta Force actually used it for a time, apparently it was stupid quiet when suppressed.

      Having fired both, I disagree. The M3 has better ergos, more accurate, and more controlable. The M3 would be my 2nd top WW2 pick for best SMG behind the KP31.

              Yeah but it was a weapon of desperate necessity, hence why the germans made it at the end.
              While I haven't shot one I'm sure the PPS-43 is a much better economy-SMG than the STEN was. I feel like there's a decent list of SMGs that come out ahead of the STEN in anything but "ideal to make in desperate situations"

          I shot a Canadian STEN with the tube stock and I wasn't that happy with it. The grip wasn't comfortable at all and the mags didn't run well on that particular gun. I think a Mk V with good mags wouldn't be too bad.

          It was a weapon designed around a fairly desperate war time economy. There were far better designs already in use like the Lanchester, but they were short on key materials and skilled mechanics and were hoping to make something that worked and could be manufactured everywhere by anyone. They succeeded in that. It is possibly the crudest weapon of WW2 but it meant at least one guy in the squad had something that went dakka dakka.

          I would literally trust my cheap cast-zinc Ring of Fire pistol with my life over a Sten. They kind of work, and often put bullets where you point them. The mags suck, and if you hold the gun wrong or catch it on your clothes/fat ass while moving they fire exactly one round and then need slapping around until they work again. Plus they hurt to shoot. You know a gun is bad when third-world hellholes are cutting them up and dumping them in favor of home-made shit.

      This. Pinoys still use the Grease Gun, to very good effect. .45 is still as potent in 2022 as it was in 1943. Grease gun is honestly a good weapon, especially for the cost of production. I wish someone would make a modern M3 repro.

    In the 90s they used to give them to tank crews and the like as a gun they could use if they had to abandon the tank. I don't know what they're using them for now.

    They work though, they're reliable, they don't weight too much and they have a slow controllable rate of full auto fire which makes them decent for suppressive fire.

    Wish I owned one, I think they're really neat.

    It's not the most accurate, nor the most comfortable, nor has the best rate of fire, but it's sturdy enough to beat a man to death with and still spit bullets after.
