The Owen Gun is one of the really good submachine guns fielded during the Second World War, but is a very scarce gun to find today. I had a chance to briefly shoot one year ago, and when I had the opportunity to try one out at Morphy’s, I jumped at it. Feeding from the top and ejecting out the bottom, and using a unique internal design that keeps the mainspring segregated from dirt and debris, the Owen was a famously reliable gun. It may look like a lot of rubbish, but it handles well and shoots well!
