Anyone know of vendors selling AK, FAL, or Sten kits?

Trying to price my kits, there's hardly anything on gunbroker to go by, just sky high starting bids with no one bidding.

AK

Several others, google is your friend.

There are others.

FAL - best to watch the 'files marketplace. A few vendors here and there have FAL kits, but mostly IMBEL and no grade selection. Google is your fridne!

Sten - google is your friend!!

Thanks for the replies, I was able to find examples of most of what Ive got, though mostly no barrel examples but at least its a baseline. The one exception were the yugo m95 kits , but I never saw very many of them even when they were around so maybe no surprise there. Guess I can always stick one on GB and find out what its worth pretty quick.

yugo 95 would be damned high.

i have a few unfired polish underfolder kits, but am not sure it is time to sell.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Justashooter, I'd hope so, I thought they were far and away the coolest of the kits that were available at the time. I had meant to build one for myself. I'm struggling with the "is it time to sell" question. Will they double in value in five years or might congress / Trump open the market back up? My magic 8 ball says Maybe.

Thank you for sharing that link.
APEX Gun Parts has STEN MK2, STEN MK3 & STEN MK5 kits.
I also have new manufactured barrels for the STEN MK2 & MK3 on order.
We also carry the magazines and a range of parts.
Right now we have some deals going on STEN's and original MK2 bayonets.

I ordered STEN MK2 & MK3 barrels back in April with a 6 to 8 week delivery time.
My usual experience with barrels is that they show up about the same time as we have to pay for some other expensive shipment!

how to price that one, i can only imagine. there were few imported adn they weren't popular, so it would be damned high to someone looking to finish a collection with a rare piece of kit gun. i would say north of a grand, easily.

Damn.

Really?

I've got a couple I put back ~2010, and about 20 original barrels.
