Sterling smg parts?

My buddy has a transferrable Sterling and is having issues with the bolt going forward when the safety is applied. He asked me if I knew anything about Sterlings, and I don't except they're fun to shoot and the mags are easy to load. LOL

His gunsmith recommended replacing the entire trigger assembly, but said he can't find one anywhere. Anyone happen to have a Sterling parts kit or know anyplace that has any for sale?

last I knew Numrich still had them in stock less barrels for reasonable
Check Apex too, pretty sure if they don't have kits they probably have trigger groups

Thank you for sharing the link to our STERLING kits.
We also have parts in this category:
https://www.apexgunparts.com/machine...ling-l2a3.html

If you want some troubleshooting assistance then the STEN/STERLING forum over on UZITALK.com may be a good place to post that question:

Kind of sounds just like a simple broke spring...

I cant post links, but google; textfiles.com sterling mk4 pdf

Download the original short manual,,like 14pgs. Inside are detailed line drawings of the sterling trigger group with pics and discriptions of each part in each position, and with how it works and interacts with all the others...Best trigger mechanism detailed info Ive ever seen.....
