Tim LaFrance Sten MK2 Movie Prop W/ SIlencer $8500

For Sale is one Sten Mk2 Lot. This is a very special Sten MK2 Built by Tim Lafrance of LaFrance Specialties. When I bought this particular example from David Spiwak a number of years ago I was told that it was a movie prop gun for the Steambridge company. One of the barrels that comes with the Sten is threaded internally for a blank firing plug, this plug was threaded in to the barrel and had a small hole so the Sten would cycle with blanks.  The plug is no longer with the barrel but you can still see where it was threaded.

Included is:

1. Tim LaFrance Sten MK2, Desert rat tan paint camo, (parkerized with black paint under tan)

2. SCRC MK25 Integral suppressed sten barrel, This silencer has a ported barrel that will take a super sonic load to sub sonic, Works best with 115 or 124g ammo for subsonic results. I can and have shot this sten indoors with no hearing protection with NATO spec ammo.

3. 2 barrels, The Tan barrel is the factory Lafrance modified barrel (threading does not hurt accuracy). The black barrel came from a parts kit

4. 3 bolts, 1 Bronze bolt for use with the silencer (I've tried to hear a difference, I cant, I say its a myth) and 2 spare steel bolts.

5. 2 extra stocks, one standard stock and one shortened for body armor or smaller framed shooters (the stock on the sten is a early) IMA-USA had them listed as "British Sten Early Experimental Butt Stock" for a significantly higher price, " Peter Laidler, in The Sten Machine Carbine, pages 254-255, identifies these as very early designs because of the internal strut provided for attachment of the Enfield rifle sling"

6. MAGS!!! tons of them, 27 total....15 of those are Desert RAT mags, very interesting pieces of WW2 history.

On a F4 in VA. Buyer pays actual shipping and transfer fees.

Images coming shortly, having some uploading issues so enjoy watching this old exhaust pipe run like a sewing machine.

Greetings.  What does " Desert rat tan paint camo, (parkerized with black paint under tan)" mean?  Is the base steel parkerized?

Thanx.
