The L2A3 Sterling submachine gun was a staple of British and small arms after World War Two, until the L85 rifle was adopted. Designed by George Patchett during the war and produced by Sterling, it is a simple and economical tubular open-bolt, simple blowback gun. It uses a very compact folding stock that is stable and useful when deployed, a very well shaped pistol grip, and a wonderful 34-round magazine. I’ve (surprisingly) not really had a chance to shoot a Sterling before, so I’m taking advantage of this one at Morphy’s to change that!
Overall, the Sterling is an excellent SMG. My only real complaint is that the stock layout and central position of the firing grip tends to make is a little bit bouncy in full automatic.

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
