Stirling Carbine

This is another of the few pic's representing nostalgia.

A truly superb carbine, to all intents the Stirling SMG but with extended barrel and bolt modified for select fire only. This one had a wooden block made which fitted onto the open folding stock butt - and by use of that set-up to extend the length, it was possible with regular lead bullet (125's) homeload ammo to get a 9" group at 100 yards. Not too shabby really.

This gun was in the category of semi, which following Michael Ryan's mayhem in Hungerford UK in 1987 became illegal. This and a Mini-14 where ''lost'' to legislative lunacy and became de-activated wall hangers.

Mag capacity was 34 rounds.
