Sten MkII sub-machine gun, with skeleton stock.
This example is one of the Stens that was sent to Finland after WWII (see snippet of online article below).
The Finn's completely rebuilt and refinished this Sten. It is in "as new" condition, with a nice tight action and no play in the magazine housing as normally found on Stens that have not been factory refurbished. The bore is bright and shiney with lots of rifling.
Aside from rebuilding and refinishing the Sten, the Finn's also added sling swivels to the Sten.
The top of the magwell has "SA" in a box, indicating its use by the Finn's.
I imported this Sten myself some years ago directly from Finland.
This Sten really is in fantastic condition, and comes complete with one (1x) 32 round magazine.
Usual permit to procure required.
Shipping to be determined with the successful purchaser (if pick up/drop off is not an option).
To quote a source on the Internet:
"Around 1957 - 1958 Finnish Ministry of Defence made a deal with Interarmco (Samuel Cummings' company). In that deal Finland gave Interarmco much of the mixed weaponry, that it wanted to get rid off (74,381 Italian 7.35-mm Carcano M/38 carbines, 217 Swedish 6.5-mm light machineguns M/21, 2,117 French 8-mm Chauchat M/15 light machineguns, their magazines, other equipment and ammunition).
In exchange Finland received 76,115 Sten Mk 2 and Mk 3 submachineguns and about 379,500 magazines for them. These submachineguns proved to contain some mixed parts and were in less than perfect shape, so they were all refurbished in Finnish depots. Besides being repaired and refished (blued) the only notable change was adding sling swivels. Sten saw active training use with Finnish Defence Forces in 1960's and 1970's until replaced by assault rifles and were declared obsolete sometime in early 1990's."
