Want to buy a Mares "Medisten" as they used to make them before the cost cutters got to work at Mares? Sealed grip butt with metal post, metal knob on the power selector cursor, metal power selector gate and metal piston and shock absorber. Forget the guns that came later, bar the small muzzle ports these were some of the best guns that Mares ever made and set them as the benchmark that has been copied ever since. The small muzzle ports don't really affect the performance as my similar "Sten" pumped up to the max can shoot 3 line wraps as it blasts out its 8 mm shaft.

Relisted as there were no bidders. Still starting off at 199 euros, which is a lot (USD222), but not excessive for the condtion. Even has the oil quantity measuring cup which I misplaced many years ago after I bought my first "MiniminIsten".
