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!
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.Length:

"One of the reasons I started airsoft was to own guns I'd never be able to otherwise. This gun is one of them - it was the British upgrade to the crude unreliable Sten and the designers seemed to have done much more then correct the flaws in the original. The folding stock is well designed, the gun-in-a-pipe design works ergonomically and visually, and is one of the most compact submachine guns in existence. The British used a few in WW2, but not many, as it wasn't in mass production until after the war - and the gun was used by the British in their colonial wars in Aden, Suez conflict, the Mau Mau wars in Kenya, Northern Ireland, everywhere British troops were sent this gun went right along with them.
Anyway,. this gun does the original design justice. Materials and workmanship are first class, the tube is all metal and only the hand grip is plastic, but the gun is so solid you barely notice. With stock folded it is less then 2' long so fits almost anywhere. For such a short barrel the bb power is surprisingly strong, function on full and semi is also very smooth - although you run the mag empty in no time.
This is a great gun, well made and decently powerful, not to mention eye catching. Evike has it the cheapest I have seen anywhere, by a long way. If this were the only airsoft gun i owned i'd be fine with that.
- eye catching appearance
- folding stock (although it's tricky to figure out and there are no instructions with it)
- compact and powerful for its size
- comes lipo ready (but no battery or charger
- No instructions or accessories come with it
- optics and drum mags are impossible
- tracer units or lights also not possible
- spare mags difficult, but not impossible to find
- goes through loaded mags with shocking speed
"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.
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!
