Friend in WI got this from me a few years back now wants to sell it. I bought the gun at Knob Creek as a C&R gun as I am in MN, looks like the gun is not a C&R but rather a STenling.

Sterling MK2 kit used believed mfg prox 1954. The original STen was registered in 1969 (1968 amnesty) per BATF. Serial number on tube used as per ATF rules 89697 mag well number is KR1934 has krinkle finish The conversion takes it out of C&R statues but fully transferable.  Comes with 4 mags, bayonet and what looks like a scope mount.  Runs well in 95% cond.

This  gun should transfer directly to a FFL/SOT on F4 now $9500 + tax and shipping. More info joe@dependablearms.com or 612-751-7979.

According to "The Guns of Dagenham" KR1500 was mfg July 1954, KR2000 was mfg Nov 1954. It says that this (KR) was the first commercial series.

So I guess the seller isn't going to mention this is a transferable Sten tube, that was redone into a Sterling.

 

I would expect better of people, but I will the seller benefit of the doubt of not knowing what he has. You should really understand your product better.

So you're saying its not a C&R then? Shouldn't it also be marked with manufacturer's info?

What tells you it's a sten tube?

Thanks,

The serial number on the tube, overall condition and the look of the crinkle finish, relative to the number on the magwell, etc.   There was no requirement in 68' that the tube be numbered, the number on the magwell would have been fine.   The mfr. on the paperwork would be helpful to disclose and end the speculation.   The fact that it transferred into MN does not make it C+R necessarily, and that only applies to individuals there, not dealers.  They can have non- C+R stuff.  HTH

It's a C&R Sten that was converted by Don's Gun Shop around 2004 according to the dealer who sold it to Joe. That dealer had amnesty registered the gun and had commissioned the conversion. DGW Co. 309-379-4331 ask for Mike or Ron.

From What everyone has said, it probably isnt a C&R correct?
