Default Sterling model #300

I own a model #300 .25 auto the #302 is the .22lr. Sterling`s are very similar to the Baby Browning of years back.
It`s true they will stovepipe with cheap ammo. Aluminum cases are the worst.(maybe a spring thing) I`ve had mine for 20+ years and have learned that it is a great gun for your pocket, and accurate for such a small barrel, I believe because it`s a fixed barrel. If anyone has one they are unhappy with I`ll be glad to take it off thier hands. I have a CWP permit for S.C.(Concealed Weapons Permit) That`s what we call it. My carry is a Taurus PT709 Slim, but when you`re wearing shorts 9 months out of the year, you appreciate a small pocket gun.

Sterling arms was not affiliated with Squires Bingham.
The small 301 & 302 pistols were virtual copies of the Rino Galesi pistols made in Italy. The design was good, but the execution was crude. The little Sterling pistols were all steel (blued, nickel plated, or stainless.) With a little gunsmithing, they can be made into very reliable guns.
Sterling also made copies of the old High Standard hammer .22s, and the "X Caliber" single shot pistol.

Sterling Armaments went bankrupt in 1988. The L2A3 sub-machine gun is still in use, but no longer in production. You can find more info on wikipedia etc. Hope this helped!

Default Sterling arms

Sterling Arms are out of business,but you can still get any part needed. Gun Parts inc is located in West Hurley, N.Y. Also known as Numrich Arms..I have bought parts from them over the years, and they bought all of the parts that Sterling had..Hope this helps you..Bob...

I just received a 302 that needs a trigger bar but Numrich shows a new style and an old style available. Does anyone know what the differance is and how can I tell which one is right for my pistol?

If you lower the ejection port like the 45's are done, the gun will fire anything, and not stovepipe...I like this item, had it for 26 years, and is great for carry and don't even know that it is there..Good mall gun...
