Pretty Intresting gun, looks like a Sten on steriods. I don't know much about it other than its supposed to be one of the best SMGs out there. I was wondering is there such a thing as a Semi-Automatic Sterling or do they only coming in Full-Auto? Also what type of bolt system does it use, I presume open-bolt?

Yes there was also a rifle version with 16" bbl, and folsing stock imported.. I belive there may have been a domestic version produced as well...

5,000 for a S/A is hardly cheap, the F/As run for 5-6k as it is right now. WTF

$5000 for that.  I wouldn't pay $500, no wait, $200 for that POS.

Call McElhiney's in Waltham, MA 02154, phone: (781) 642 9991. Small store front gun shoppe and he had two consecutive serial number new S/A Sterlings like you're looking for. Last price I knew was $1850 each, but I doubt if its firm. He's had them awhile (watch, now that I told you, he'd have sold them both yesterday). Give him a try anyway.
