    This very interesting Sten gun is offered for trade on a different forum, and I am interested in getting it, I just love the look of it
    Apparently it was in a plane that was shot down carrying equipment for the Norwegian resistance and it was salvaged after the war. In the crash it broke in three pieces.

    I can not think of anything to trade for it at the moment, but the seller asked me to give him an offer, so I am just wondering, what could this thing be worth?(Money wise) I would have no clue on how to price it.

    It's very interesting but i wouldn't pay much for it, i've just searched on google and you can pick up a deactivated mk 2 for about £300 here in Britain!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Dang, thats certainly a very interesting background if true!

    As to worth, its worth what one is willing to pay for it.

    Whats one mans gold is another mans junk.

    It really impossible for us to put an exact number on it.

    In the eyes of some, it'll be worth next to nothing - for others a lot (especially with that background....., but buy the item not the story).
    Personally, I like it a lot!

    One thing is for sure; that thing is deactivated....with a vengeance!

    Looks like it got run over by a STUG.

    It wood look nice professionally mounted on a display board with info about the resistance arms drop but yes, for me $150 would be TOPS.

    ( but then I'm a relic nutter ) ........

    I second that; mounting it on the wall with info and pic of the most likely type of plane is the way ahead. Could make for a great display (but then I'm a relic nutter as well)

    You are right. Some offcials might get their knickers in a bunch in regards to the SMG. Even in that condition the law in some countries will most likely stipulate, that procedure in regards to deactivation is followed (not saying that it is so in this case).

    IMO it would look good nicely displayed with either an old section of parachute with a few cords wrapped around it or some pieces of a weathered old wood crate lots of possibilities for display I would have no problem forking out $150.00 for it great conversation piece.

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
