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.

"I’m gonna start off by saying, my sterling broke(sort of) as soon as I received it. I put the battery in, slapped a mag in and it immeadiately jammed. I thought it wasnt feeding so I pulled the mag out and put it back in and tried to shoot it again and that just made things worse. I have no idea how to field strip this thing, so unfortunately I tried to fix it myself, thus voiding the warranty. Ive yet to send it in for repairs so I havent gotten to play with it. Besides that, the metal body is so nice. The folding stock is freaking awesome and it just feels so right holding it. Mags are really cheap but dont fit in my smg pouches. They are a little wide. Accesing the battery is easy too, just need a small brick lipo. Once I send my sterling in for repair I will update with a new review.
"Good SMG, I’d say the only problems with this gun are:
Small battery casing ( Fix would be to increase the guns length)
No scope or accessory rails
No hi cap magazine
"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.
