A Bleg

According to Strategypage, the Greek Cypriot national guard is selling off some old mil-surp stuff, including Mk IV Lee-Enfields and Mk-III STENs.  If anyone knows how to lay hands on them, please let me know in the comments.

  1. No idea, but I’d take one if they want to toss it my way.

  2. I’ll be at Tulsa next week at Wanenmacher’s gun show. I’ll check with a few folks I know that have access.

  3. Well, unfortunately the Stens will not ever be available since they were not registered in the NFRTR they are not transferable or importable for us mere mortal citizens. Meanwhile, the Lee-Enfields may come in through one of hte mass importers. Have to wait and see who grabs them.

  5. Watch the AIM website, along with Classic Arms. Century seems to grab the big orders, while AIM appears to cherry pick their stock. Classic is a family business, and he stands behind the quality of his wares with his name.

    I have a No4MkII….. impressive rifle.

  6. In a tangentially related question, since I see the word on crosswords mostly, and have never heard it, I don’t think, how do you pronounce STEN? Is it “S-ten” or “sten”?

  7. Bardiac–it’s pronounced “Sten” like in stent minus the final t.

    I know. Parts are available, as well as 80% finished receivers. Of course, I have no tools to finish a receiver, so an 80% finished receiver is pretty much a paperweight.
