Now, this is a hypothetical question… nothing is planned… just me and my wild ideas here.
Let’s say Crusader Weaponry did a small run of custom, semi-auto, legal 16″ barreled (so no special paperwork needed), British Sterling SMG’s. 9mm, of course. 34 round mag. Folding stock.
All the internals cleaned, deburred, Slipstreamed, and otherwise fitted. Trigger pull improved. External, the gun is Duracoated a Flat Black, Wolf Grey, or Olive Drab… your choice. And let’s say that you could get that gun for… oh, say… only 600 bucks.
Would you want one? Well, yes, of course you do. You are Gun Guys and Gals, and Want isn’t the problem… The real question is “Would you BUY one?”
BTW, yes, you could totally bring this to a Crusader Carbine Course… because that would be just that sweet. Easy weapon to handle and shoot and hit with. Slight Variations on normal carbine tactics, but still very workable and effective. And Cheap To Feed. Fun… Sterlings are made out of Fun.
