That's one nice looking dummy Sterling!

Who made it please Jim?

nice sterling, the sterling is one of my favourites as it was my personnel weapon for many years. this looks a good model i notice it has the correct type muzzle for a british version rather than the flat muzzle face of the mgc model, also the finish looks like the finish tthat was put on the semi auto only models for civilian use, even the bolt seems to have the prope cuts in it to self clean.
great model jim but i bet it was not cheap

Hi gentlemen ,

Cerwyn - it was made by the boss of a Hong Kong theatrical weapon supplier (I'll send PM of details for anyone interested later on...)

Claymore - unfortunately no matter how I beg the guy he just wouldn't make it pfc firing no matter what (he doesn't want to get to the wrong side of the law) - but if I ordered prior to production then he can make the bore partially blocked - and with a new bolt with fixed firing pin I can go bang with it...

This one is so heavy so I don't think the caps can cycle the action - the blanks will be more appropriate (blanks are completely prohibited in HK so I'll leave it to you guys to think about it...)

I was told that this is actually the Canadian version (though I'm not too sure of the difference between the British & the Canadian version) and yes - I hate the look of the flat muzzle face as well as the straight bolt handle on the MGCs (I won't mind getting one though...)

There's a bayonet lug on the muzzle and I was given a genuine bayonet...for free (I'll upload the pics later so please keep watching). The civilian (semi-auto) model...I think they had been shortened and they call it the Sterling pistol isn't it?

I bought this because I couldn't find any Sterling anywhere (whether it's pfc,airsoft or else...) and once I saw this gun I went nostalgic & memorising when HK was still a British colony...by the way the Sterling were quite extensively used by the police & the special task force (during the 70s), the British Army in HK as well as the Royal Auxiliary Army...

Finally the price tag...933 (when I bought it early this year)...please check if reenactors are eligible to get them in (and I think you can order to have it converted to blank firing since it'll be for export at one's own risk...)
