    Some of the Stern No.4 T's just popped up on Gunbroker, the two listed were two of the three worst examples there. I did not even bother to stay at the auction to see what they originally sold for.

    Here you go …

    Price includes auction house Buyer's Premium of 15-17%

    THREE (3) BRITISH P.I.A.T. ANTI-TANK WEAPONS. SN IC/A54633: IC/BZ12456: GZ14565. Cal. 88mm - The P.I.A.T. (Projector, Infantry, Anti-Tank) was an active anti-tank launcher for the Britishicon Infantry from 1942 to 1950. Here we have 3 fantastic specimens packaged in a Greek WWII Army issue wooden crate. There is an inert / practice round included with each launcher for a total of 3. The projectile launched was an 88mm, 3 pound warhead with an impact fuse and was launched by a propelling charge in a hollow tail between the warhead and the stabilizing fins. Although it had a reasonable maximum range, the actual range it was found to be effective was in the area of 100 yards or so. The launchers measure 39 inches in length and weigh approximately 32 pounds. They have a bipod that mounts in a ring area in front of tube. They utilize a large internal spring to assist in the firing mechanism and to help tame the enormous recoil. The shoulder piece has a rubber filled, canvas pad laced on the stock section and 2 tan, web slings on the right side of the launcher. The rear sight (aiming mechanism) is on the left side of the tube behind the pistol grip and the front sight is a folding pin located above the front of the trigger guard. A small cork (on a retention chain) is attached to the tube on the right side. The cork is used to plug the mechanism after it is cocked, before loading the projectile. The steel pistol grip is covered with a black plastic, 2-piece covering. It is important to note that the BATFE had listed these in Section III of the Curios & Relics List: Weapons Removed From The NFA As Collector's Items And Classified As Curios Or Relics Under The GCAicon. These are no longer NFA firearms and simply transfer as standard, Title I firearms! No transfer fees and no NFA style paperwork wait. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Good – These interesting launchers are a great find, especially with their practice rounds and fitted wooden crate. It would be a great addition to any collection or just an opportunity for a few buddies to chip in on something really unique and reasonably priced. 4-34680 JZ99 (2,800-3,800)


    Sold for $5,750 U.S.

    Badger

    For you sten gun fans .....

    All prices include auction house Buyer's Premium of 15-17%

    44 *BRITISH STEN MKI SUB MACHINE GUN. SN 294029. Cal. 9mm. Very dark gray Parkerized finish on all exposed metal. Front sight protected stationary post. Rear sight stationary peep. Sling swivel in front of bbl and inside loop stock. Canvas sling, and 30-rnd magazine are also included. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Good. Finish is dark and uniform with regular rack and handling wear. Open bolt mechanism functions smooth by hand in both safe and semi. Bbl has lots of rifling. 4-34655 JZ29 (7,000-9,000)




    Sold for $32,200 U.S.



    45 *GERMAN MODEL MP3008 SUB MACHINE GUN. SN RDE45. Cal. 9mm luger. 8" bbl. This very rare submachine gun was a direct Germanicon copy of the Sten. This model was produced by Mauser as well as six other firms and appeared early on in several versions intended for Volkssturm use. Production did not begin until close of the end of the war. This gun at first glance looks almost identical to the British Sten, with the exception of the magazine well which is at the six 'o clock position rather than the standard nine o' clock position. Ejection is still out the right hand side. Very crude front sight constructed from a ring and shaped to a point. Rear sight is a fixed peep sight again very similar to that of the Sten. Gun utilizes standard MP38 and MP40 32-rnd magazines. Sling attachment is fixed to front of magazine well. Rear of receiver marked with a serial number in front of the stock. Stock was designed to resemble a loop type Sten stock. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Very good. Although the workmanship of these firearms were crude and spot welded that can't take away from the rarity and overall condition of this fine specimen. The bbl is shiny and rifling is sharp. Open bolt mechanism functions well by hand in safe, and semi full automatic. 4-34656 JZ44 (16,000-19,000)



    Sold for $37,375 U.S.



    69 *BRITISH STEN MARK II SUB MACHINE GUN. SN 55405. Cal. 9mm luger. Manufactured by J.L. & CO LTD (Englandicon). 7-3/4" bbl "T style stock." Standard welded blade front sight, standard welded peep rear sight, all Parkerized gray finish, and includes one magazine. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Currently Unserviceable. Althought all paperwork indicates this is an orig. transferable machine gun it may have been dewated at one time. Bbl has an obstruction, and bbl shroud has been tack welded to receiver. Could be easily inexpensively restored to fully operational. Everything else seems correct, and open bolt mechanism functions properly in both semi, and full. All metal Pakerized w/ heavy coverage shows light rack and handling wear. 4-34653 JZ17 (5,000-8,000)



    Sold for $8,338 U.S.

    Ever notice how most of the Britishicon no4T snipers (along with their L42 offspring) have serial numbers in the 3X,XXX range? 7 out of the 8 British Enfields listed above are in that range, albeit different and various letter prefix's.

    Amazing some of these prices, and some of the deeeeep pocketbooks that have bought them.

    Grandfathered or not, I doubt you or any other Canadian would spend 32,200 US $ on a gun that you can't take to the range here in Canada.

    I have bought F/As in the past and had them transferred to my local gunsmiths for deactivation. I don't even want to mention what some of them are...but suffice to say they would have done nicely at this auction if they were allowed South.

Left side of receiver has the standard British sniper mount that has been renumbered a couple of times and contains a No. 32 MKIII sniper scope with serial number "18187" and dated "1945". Several thousand of these rifles were modified into sniper rifles by the British, particularly by Holland & Holland. CONDITION: Fine to very fine. The receiver, receiver ring & trigger guard retain most of their fine gray parkerized finish with bbl bands a thinned gray brown finish. Scope & mount retain most of their arsenal restored finish. Wood is sound with numerous nicks & dings and retains a hand worn patina. Mechanics are fine, strong bright bore with scattered light pitting. Optics are crisp & clear. 4-31822 (2,000-3,000)



    Sold for $2,875 U.S.

    Here it is being re-sold on Gunbroker (click here) with a starting bid of $3,995.00

    It didn't sell in his third auction attempt at that price, so ... Re-listed Gunbroker Auction (click here) still with a starting bid of $3,550.00 and a BUY NOW of $3,599.00 Finally sold for $2,800.00 U.S. (click here). I think he lost money on this one ...


    A follow up ....

    I saw this posted by Peter over on Joustericon's Enfield boards. I don't think he'd mind it repeated here for our members as well.

    If the telescope is 18187, then buyer beware. This scope was repaired by me from derelict condition in February 2001. It was one of a batch that came in from India.

    Another bit of useless info for you forumers.............
    Note the scope number in the James Julia Auction listing as "18187" and dated "1945". Sounds like the same one to me that Peter refers to.
