    Parts kits are available from time to time from Switzerland as there complete guns are worth $200-$300, so sometimes an enterprising US company will buy some and have them de-miled to turn them into parts kits they can sell for $600 and above.

    If you look on the Swiss Rifles Forum and the FAL Files there are some forum threads that detail the issues people have had trying to make a US made receiver to use these parts kits. Not easy.
    You got to be missing zeros. Stens are going for $7000

    The civilian models imported are semi auto.

    In Switzerland yes you can pick up a STG 57 for a couple hundred bucks. They are very common still there on the ranges. Many of the matches there have over a thousand participants, some ranges can accommodate over a 100 or more on the line. Just saw photos on Facebook from a recent match at Rutli and the STG 57 was very common on the line.

    When they left leave military service they had the option to take the weapon with them. If they chose the STG57 it was converted to semi auto and then it went home with the soldier. There’s a lot of them in circulation over there.

    with no bolt, quick sell $1700ish





    Doing these in semi isnt a hard task , Finding overlapping pieces to make a new receiver is. that middle section is the part that usually got ditched. BUT sometimes hunks do come up for sale and are very $$$$$

    Whenever I was in Switzerland I saw many STG 57s being used. There are ranges everywhere and the sound of gun fire is very common wherever you are in the rural areas.

    The Swiss seem to be doing gun rights correctly over there.

    Not really.
    Firearm ownership and carry is at the will of the state.
