Sterling SMG’s

Yesterday I went over to Crusader HQ and helped work on the Sterling SMG project.  I had some fun doing it… I really did.

The Sterling is a unique weapon.  It’s simple to the point that it makes an AK look complicated, yet it has a crude elegance about it.  The parts that came were all in various conditions and each one had it’s own personality. The parts had to be all be cleaned, resurfaced / Slipstreamed.   It was time consuming, but we knocked them out pretty good.  Joe still has to do the finish work…. One of them is going to be Pink.  It should turn out awesome.

One thing that impressed me was the Slipstream process.  It’s easy to describe, but very challenging to do.  It’s a blind process that is done by feel.  It takes an experienced touch to do it, and Joe has that.    The result is a Sterling that actually feels like a weapon.   No grinding feel, no grit.  Huge difference compared to the last Sterling I fired.   Photos Soon.

  1. Many thanks to George. If he hadn’t come out and help out we would not be finished to the point that duracoat is the only remaining step.

    Thanks again bro.

    1. Next time I come out, I’m bringing a few guns to ST-1… Getting my hands dirty was fun. I want to do it again!

  2. I LOVED building guns, it was something that I could actually do all day and not get burnt out on it. I do have a love/hate relationship with 1911’s but in the end the satisfaction of building one of those is off the charts.
