Sterling is a relatively simple, but wery well made, blowback operated gun. The receiver and the barrel heat shield was made from steel tube, the bolt was machined, with fixed firing pin and four special ribs, designed to gather and remove the dust and fouling from the receiver. The curved magazine is inserted from the left side, spent cases are ejected to the right. The folding butt is made from stamped steel. Silenced version of the Sterling, officially labelled as L34A1, replaced in service the older STEN Mark 6 silenced.
The Sterling SMG deserved vvery high reputation along the troops due to extreme reliability and good accuracy.
The submachine gun was produced
in the United Kingdom between 1953 and 1988. The weapon was manufactured at the
Sterling Armament Company at Dagenham and at the Royal Ordnance Factory at
Fazackerley. In Canada, a similar model was produced under license by the
Canadian Arsenals Limited under the designation 9 mm C1 Sub-Machine Gun. In
India, another licenseded weapon based on the L2A2 is
still produced under the designation Sub-Machine Gun Carbine 9mm 1A1. The weapon
is manufactured at Indian Ordnance Factories, Kanphur.
the L34A1 /Sterling Mk.5 silenced
submachine gun, which is apparently still in limited use with certain special
operations elements in British army.
