Old spec, £1000+

 

New Spec, £400 to £600

If that's the case anyone got an old one sitting round collecting dust....? Lol

I've seen old deals going for about £700-800.

I've got an old spec (pre 96) MK2 which I can fully strip except the barrel of course.

What are the new deacs like compared?

A friend has a deac MK2 which is useless, can't even cock it! Nothing like that I hope!

All post-1995 deactivated SMGs will not cock. Some done between 1995 and 2010 will have a moving cocking handle. All post-2010 ones will be welded solid.

 

This is why I don't own any post-1995 deactivated SMGs and regret selling the old-spec Mk2 and Mk3 Stens I used to own.:(

I have yet to see a new spec Mk5 for sale for £400.oo. the cheapest was around the £575.oo. mark upwards

so get your money while you can and buy an early deact I remember not so long ago BAR's were £400.oo.

now you are looking at £1400.oo. upwards

I did a quick bit of shopping around and the cheapest I could find was £475 at the moment, I dare say that a private seller may take £400 but it does appear the prices are climbing.

 

 

£495

Yeah, first place I go to normally is WW Arms, . They tend to be cheapest around. All my old deals come from t here years ago, but prices shooting up! (Excuse pun!)

I am looking round for a private seller, . Best chance of getting an old deac I think

Yeah, very good for me...just wish it was old spec deac! First place I went to mate to check current prices. Already showed the missus for a Christmas idea, she said " what you want another one of those for? How many bloody guns did they go into battle with...??"

I replied..."well there's Monday, then Tuesday, then Wednesday....etc....!"

Fell on blank expressions!
