Are those new old model stihls (ms200 / ms260 / ms440 etc) that seem to be sold by people with eastern european sounding names legit, or are they those 3D printer copies ?

A few weeks ago I saw a saw on gumtree which was Stihl coloured but it said it was not a Stihl even though it was written on (in black marker) :D

Go to a real dealer, stihl husky whatever.
Buy a real saw.

It's relisted again, with what I think is a reasonable fair description

That's better. Even at the start, I didn't think he was a complete robber.

Strangely enough, I just had an email from gumtree saying that one of the people I had contacted about a saw had been reported to them for 'suspicious activity' :D

If I was working in the industry, absolutely would do that no question. However, in this case it wouldn't make sense to buy an £1100 saw to cut someone else's firewood for no reward, but I can live with spending £300 or £400 on a second hand ms440 which I can keep going indefinitely so long as parts are available. (My 82 year old landlord was getting big bits of oak and ash from site clearances delivered to the farm, splitting lengthways with wedges and somehow getting them on the saw bench. I have been using a ms261 with 18" bar, but it is a bit much for it and most of the wood is around 24" to 36", so would struggle to do it with a smaller bar. The old boy still insists on doing the splitting, but hopefully he is less likely to get hurt this way. Bit of a performance, but he has been very good to me over the years)
