Such a thing as a transferable Stechkin APS?

    Hey all. I don't reckon I've ever seen a transferable Stechkin APS pistol on the NFA market. The importation of buzz guns, of course, ended in '68 and the Iron Curtain fell long afterwards. I suppose there is an insanely remote possibility of a amnesty-registered bring back.

    Anywho, jus' wondering, has anyone on this'a'here forum ever seen a transferable Stechkin APS? This Cold War-era oldfart would love to know. ;)

    I don't know.

    On the website Wikipedia, I found it reported that the following countries have issued the Stenchkin to their forces:
    Angola, Cuba, Mongolia, Mozambique, Russia: Used by various police forces,
    Soviet Union, Tanzania, Ukraine, Zambia

    Then I imagine which of those countries the USA may have fought previous to 1968, when a battlefield pickup Stenchkin could have been found...

    Yes, there are a couple in the registry. I don't know prices, but I imagine they'd fall in the $10K+ range.

    Thanx, Yamato. Considering the rarity, 10K isn't bad.

    I've always wondered if there are any transferable VZ61 Skorpions on the registry. I'd love to have one of those. I have the pistol version, and while it is quite a bit of fun, the real thing would be a lot better. I am hesitant to make an SBR out of a Scorpion pistol because of the 922(r) compliance issues involved. Since not even the ATF can decide if 922(r) applies to NFA weapons, I have no interest in being the test case for them.
