Nothing like reviving an older thread. I was reading through this one because I own a Sterling Arms .25. Pulled it out the other day when we went to the range.
Ran about 25 rounds through it with no problems. The mag spring does seem weaker than it used to. I even cleaned it this time. 8-)

Default Sterling handgun experience

Had one. A .380 ACP. Sold it.
Had a problem with misfires and jamming. Turned out to be the firing pin, spring, and little red cap (loaded indicator)on the back of the firing pin. Apparently, the spring got weak and the little red cap would get stuck when the gun tried to cycle. Found all the parts at Numrich for cheap. Good for plinking but wouldn't trust my life to it.

I bought my wife a little Sterling 22 auto around 36, 37 years ago for a little carry gun. I paid $65 new, I still have it and it shoots just fine. It's a little gut gun and as basic as you can get.

I have and have had for about 25 or so years now a Sterlings Arms 22LR in stainless steel and I am looking for a manual or breakdown of it. I am not even sure as to how to take it apart for a good thorough cleaning so I always cleaned with it fully assembled. Any help would be appreciated. If you have any info you can share please email it to me at
jdcjr@comcast.net.

Thanks,

Try Gunpartscorp/Numrich. They have exploded drawings of many guns.

My father was the lead designer for sterling arms for a few years. He, and his design team were responsible for the .22 lr and .25 auto pistols, the first that the company released. He also played a role in the design of the .380 model. My knowledge of the history of the company and their firearms is limited, however my father is still living, and if there is any interest, I could ask him for more information. I do know that the company changed hands, and according to my father "under the new ownership, dollar signs were more important than safe reliable firearms, and quality control suffered." this was when my father parted ways with the company. during the time he was there he recieved multiple letters from police officers whos lives had been saved by their backup handgun, a sterling auto. He refused to be a part of the company when they started shipping sub par firearms, and the company went under a short time later. I will ask him for more information dates etc...
