I'm convinced I need more ammo capacity, so I figured the Stormtroopers were onto something....

I'll get out with it tomorrow, hopefully it works well.

Looks like a Sterling, perhaps used against the stormtroopers?

Does it shoot? Always thought a Marlin camp9 would be cool, but I think this beats that idea :)

It's a Sterling 9mm Carbine. Semi auto, fires from a closed bolt, unlike the SMG.

I think you'll need some bangers and mash with that one Berto. Or maybe some spotted dick?:whistling:

I had a chance to shoot a Sterling while stationed in England. It was a very cool gun, of all the sub machine guns I've ever fired it ranks in the top 3 of the ones I liked the best. I'm not really into the SBR or tax stamp thing but I'd have to give it some thought on that one. Very nice, Congrats!

The blaster rifles used by the stormtroopers in the original Star Wars movies were modified and disguised Sterlings, hence the stormtroopers reference. If you watch older copies of the movies closely, you can even see the casings being ejected.

Very nice. Someone wanted to trade me one of those for my Russian SKS I almost did it but I had a KT sub 2000 in 9mm and decided I did not need it.

That's cool! I've been thinking about getting on of those for awhile. If you don't go the SBR route Wiselite makes a barrel shroud that looks like a silencer. Hopefully you get better groups out of it than the Stormtroopers did. :supergrin:

Aren't you kinda short for a Stormtrooper?

So far, it appears to group pretty well. Function was fine with Fiocchi 115gr ball, Gold Dots gave it a fit.
Will post a report tomorrow, gotta work.

I have been thinking about getting one of those in 7.62x25. I still have a couple of thousand rounds of that and bottle-neck cartridges will feed reliably through just about anything.

I looked at a new Polish PPs-43 at the gun show last weekend and the build quality was definitely meh. So much slop it I was concerned about the working parts popping out while firing it. Price is coming down ($400 at the show) since the cheap surplus 7.62x25 is drying up.

How tight is the Sterling? Do the in-nerds flop around or does it feel solid.

- Edit -

Royal Tiger Imports in NC has the PPs-43 for $300. I may break down and get one anyway.

These Sterlings are reworked by Wiselite, converted from open bolt full auto to closed bolt semi auto.
'Tight' for tube receiver bullet hose SMG's is sort of relative, it feels solid in that the tig welds and general assembly feels and appears strong.
Having disassembled it, the parts look milspec as you'd expect...the bolt weighs about the same as some small revolvers.
Function-wise, the sights are off a bit, but that can be adjusted. The action and operation of the magazines and mag release is tight with little slop. Trigger has creep, but it is actually pretty good and not heavy.
The bolt moves smoothly- much more so now that it is clean and lubed. The folding stock is also well made and solid, locking under bbl jacket when folded and under the breech plug when extended, good lockup in both modes.
It does the "ka-chunk" thing when shooting- you feel the reciprocating of the bolt and it seems slow, but it's fast enough and doesn't seem to hinder quick firing.
I like it.:supergrin:

Bangers & Mash are sausages & mashed potatoes. I figured Heinz Spotted Dick was some kind of pickle! Never would have guessed sponge cake & pudding!!

Very cool, but I'll stick with my Auto Ordnance Thompson 1927 45 ammo-chewing machine (it's semi-auto, which is fine by me). I rationalized getting it as a Boat Gun, but it's never been near the water.
