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