I don’t have much gasoline in the truck, and I’m so broke I can’t afford to pay attention. But I have ammo and Ballistic Testing Zone One is practically out the back door of Ogre Ranch. So we did a little bit of shooting while the kids were doing school work.
Group is good for 50 yards iron sighted, standing. I'll take that.
The Sterling was once again… impressive. The gun was flawless, but one of the magazines was under-sprung and caused two malfunctions when loaded to capacity. Continue reading →
The Sterling: Designed in 1942. Perfected in 2011. Okay, that’s a bit much… and it’s cheesy as hell. However during test firing today at Ballistic Testing Zone One, the Sterling didn’t have a single malfunction of any kind. The gun ran flawlessly.
Some guys might complain about the high bore axis...
I am very pleased with how well these Crusader Sterlings have done. This project is going to be a lot of fun and I’ll be working on these things personally, along side GunDoctor. I am really looking forward to getting my hands dirty and taking a photo amongst a bunch of SMG’s.
I might have to change the name of the Blog to The Happy Ogre.
Those of you that said you wanted a Sterling. We are doing a limited run of these guns as these are a side project. Because of this these guns must be pre-paid. Price is $639.99 each.
These are Semi-Auto Only, 9mm, Slipstream Treated internals, Duracoat finished. A perfect vehicle to SBR and/or suppress.
To Place Your Order. Contact Joe at Crusader Weaponry to send your payment for the gun and specify your Color. Flat Black, Olive Drab, or Coyote Brown. (some parts will be black and/or Slipstreamed Grey) Check your State Laws to see if these are legal. They are classified as 9mm Rifles.
For some more information on the Sterling, I offer a link to this informational video. To show you what these things originally were capable of, I will show you this video… but please note – we are only selling semi auto only versions with 16 inch barrels… not actual Submachineguns as shown below:
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.
