It's stamped Sterling Arms on the slide of my .380. I bought it back in 81 when I got divorced. My future ex made some "veiled" threats so I went to the local sporting goods store (this was 1981 in Costa Mesa, Kalifornia) and picked up the Sterling. I didn't have any problems with it and when I first took it to the Sheriff's range on Katella in the city of Orange, Kalifornia, the rangemaster was very helpful in getting the rear sight set up. He had to "modify" his screwdriver to get the screw out but he got it done.
I haven't fired it in years and now that I live in Las Vegas, I think (when I find the box it's stored in) I'll check it out, reclean it and go to the range and run a few rounds through it. If it's still functional, I'll get it registered (Clark county is the only county in Nevada that requires handgun registration) and then use it as my concealed carry weapon. It's a lot
smaller and lighter than my Sig Sauer P226 .40 cal.
