He quoted me a price of $1900 for it...

That seems reasobably priced for a transferable MG... what do ya'll think? Jump on it?

That is an AMAZING deal these days!    I'd buy that on the spot, even if I didn't want a STEn!!!

Make sure it's a TRANSFERABLE gun...

It's transferable...

My wife says I should buy it and put it in the safe...

That almost seems too good to be true.  Is there any way you can inspect it, and/or fire it?  If everything checked out, I would jump on it ASAP.  Even if it has some mechanical "issues", it's still an excellent deal.

Is it a dewatt? Even if it is, might just be tacked shut. I'd do some more looking at it, but yeah, sounds like a screaming deal.

Shoot he's a good friend of mine... He pulled it all apart on the counter and we talked about it for 30 minutes... It's legit!

I planned on calling him this morning and telling him I'll take it, so he'll set it aside for me. But I just wanted someone who knows about Sten's to say it was a smokin' deal...

I mean Hell, as I was standing there looking at it, I knew in the back of my mind that $1900 was cheap. So when I got home and started looking at them online, the cheapest prices I saw where in the $4000 starting range!

Buy It!

definately buy it. sten mags are cheap, 9mm isn't too bad and $1900 for a transferable sten is a steal.

Will be calling him in 2 1/2 hours.... Already pulled $2K out of the safe, and have been searcing the interwebs for Sten parts kits and mags...

Sten mags $15
Looks like they've doubled in price over 2 years.  I bought a half dozen of these for a Masterpiece Arms 9mm & they all worked fine.

Yeah I saw that ad.... I'll pick up a few dozen... thanks!

AWESOME...buy it and a case of mags.
Link Posted: 1/30/2010 9:28:46 AM EDT
 $11.95
And do yourself a HUGE favor - get a box type loader, Sten mags are a bitch to load without one.

Let down of the century... he says he wants to keep it for a while, but will give me first dibs!

Apparently he was just relaying to me how much he paid for it... not that he wanted to sell it to me for $1900.... which is odd becuase of the way the conversation went doen. I could have sworn that he was telling me a price for me to buy it....

Initially I wasn't gonna say anything, but... when it sounds too good to be true....

I almost bought a Mac 10 off of him for $1900 2 years ago...so it didn't surprise me when he threw the price out there... I just thought he got it from one of his customers on consignment...

Well, you are still in the running to get it, but it doesn't sound like he has any plans of selling it for $1900 either way. Should have told him you'd take it that day.

A dealer friend of mine has a STEN (tube gun, not a C&R) that he'll sell me for what he has into it, which is $3500.  I'm trying to figure out what I can sell out of the safe to generate the cash.  I already have 40+ mags for it since I used to use them in my 9mm AR.
