"Being a Brit, I had to have this gun, perfect for a Northern Ireland loadout. I've wanted a Sterling for ages and never thought it would be possible to fit an AEG inerds in the little pipe of a gun that the sterling is. So I was amazed when this arrived.
As an AEG it's great, although there's not much room for a battery, but a small Lipo worked fine. Performance is great out of the box and it even has select fire! Not just full auto! The hop works well but it a bit fiddly to get to.
As a replica, I am stunned. Full metal (and good metal not the normal rubbish, feels like proper steel). The stock folds out just like the real thing and is completely solid. This is one of the best replicas I've every come across, I'm not kidding. Perfect in every detail and with all that solid metal feels the right weight. I'm so impressed. This feels lovely just to hold let alone use. "So, I'm a HUGE nerd, especially astronomy and science fiction, and I love Star Wars. Ever since I got into airsoft, I've wanted them to make this gun (an affordable, official version), because it is, of course the Stormtrooper/Clone Trooper blaster. So I was beyond thrilled when I found out Evike was going to be carrying this. I preordered, but the order didn't go through, so I had to re-order it. When I got it, the box was slightly damaged, but who cares, right?? When I took it out, I had a full-on Nerdgasm. Though after my initial excitement, I realized it was a bit beat up. The bolt has a huge black scratch on it, the aluminum inner butt piece is slightly rusted and there are a few nicks and scratches on the rest of the gun. Not that bad, but like it was a used gun. Needless to say, I'm planning on returning it for a new one, as this is the most money I've ever spent on an airsoft gun. HOWEVER, that is the ONLY problem I had!!! The gun itself is the best airsoft gun I've ever had/fired. From what I've shot, it out-performs my M16a3, AKs-74u, and SIG carbine. It's a bit heavy, but extremely realistic, and is very compact, but also has a great shoulder stock for braced-firing. Overall, it's the perfect weapon for annihilating Nazis, Aliens, Rebel Alliance soldiers, etc. haha. I highly recommend the gun! "update:
To all you who are on the fence of this gun...let me tell you a tale.
I fielded this gun at the LC Op New Horizon 03-07-2015. If you know the AO it is very challenging with triple canopy conditions this year. At first I started playing with an Echo 1 AK74 and it performed well but as with all AK's the magazine is very long so when in the prone during an ambush it is very hard to get lower to the ground. So after lunch I switched over to my L2A1... a huge advantage. As I mentioned in previous posts I changed out the stock spring with a Matrix M120 and achieved and average 311fps with Matrix .25 bio BB's. This gun performed beyond my wildest dreams. I was able to achieve multiple kills at distance through the thick brush as well as lay in the ambush in a fierce fire fight and get kills. I was concerned about the silver exposed faux bolt as it is not tactical but the color did not give away my position. My over all impression with this gun is very impressed with it's performance and abilities. It's not a DMR but even with a very short barrel I was able to outshoot M4's as well as AK's. If you're looking for that unique look with the ability to dominate at medium to close range get this gun w/plenty of spare mags, be sparing on the trigger and you'll kick ass!

WWII collector? Looking to build your own Storm Trooper E-11 blaster? This is the most realistic Sterling replica in history with a high performance lipo ready 9mm gearbox!
S&T Full Steel WWII Sterling L2A1 Airsoft AEG Submachine Gun
The Sterling L2A1 features full steel construction, realistic welding, superb detail, and a high performance 9mm lipoly ready metal gearbox. The manufacturer has done an exceptional job at recreating this 1 to 1 scale replica as an AEG. The gun boasts a noticeable heft in its overall weight. The entire AEG feels rugged and sturdy and features excellent attention to detail to make this replica as accurate to its real counterpart as possible; including its very unique folding stock. This is a great weapon for any collector, re-enactor, or cosplayer who is looking for the most accurate reproduction available.
The most notable and possibly most famous use of the Sterling sub-machine gun was in the original Star Wars films by Lucas Arts. Used as a base gun and then modified with various props, the Sterling L2A1 eventually inspired the BlasTech E-11 Blaster Rifle used across the Galaxy and issued to Imperial Stormtroopers.
While the Sterling L2A1 sub-machine gun was not a widely known or used weapon during World War II, it was still seen as a significantly improved weapon over the Sten sub-machine gun used by British infantry. The stamped steel weapon was submitted for trials to replace the Sten in early 1944 and soon found its way into select airborne units towards the end of the war. The Sterling was a far superior weapon boasting greatly improved accuracy and reliability as well as being incredibly light weight and compact thanks to its unique folding stock. The weapon remained in use up until it was phased out in 1987 by the introduction of the L85A1 assault rifle.
