Northern Ireland Sterling Submachine Gun Copy

This copy or clone of a Sterling Mk4 / L2A3 submachine gun is believed to have been assembled during The Troubles by Loyalist paramilitaries. Although which group made it is unknown and its origins are unclear, it’s a fascinating example of clandestine engineering which shows considerable skill in its assembly.

This video has no intention to comment on the conflict itself, merely examine a weapon produced during the period.
