    Sterling Model 400

    A friend of mine has a Sterling Mark II Model 400 .380.






    He told me that about 20 years ago, he lost the extractor and associated springs and followers. He wants me to try and make an extractor and other assorted parts.

    I have been unsuccessful on finding the information I need on this weapon.

    1. How do you field strip it? I found the disassembly screw on the right side. Do you push it in or do you remove it. It is spring loaded. After you do whatever to the screw, then what. I have pushed it in and could not remove the slide. I have removed it and could not remove the slide. There must be a trick?

    2. Could someone please post a picture of the extractor. I have found a couple of diagrams on line but they are not detailed enough to build another extractor.

    Thanks

    Extractor? http://www.e-gunparts.com/product.as...SKU=921790&MC= They have the spring too...but you're on your own for the plunger.

    It is apparently modeled after a Walther PPK but it does not come down like the Walter either. The Walter comes apart by taking the trigger assembly out the bottom also.

    This thing is one piece, you can not take the trigger assembly out the bottom.

    Go here for a reproduction of the Model 400 Mk II manual. $5 plus shipping. Very likely to be the only game in town.

    you can say but I bought a Sterling Arms Model 400 in .380. It was used (quite a bit from what I can tell) and very dirty. From what I've read, the company went out of business in 1983.

    Anyway, out of the door with a box of ammo - 181$. Did I do okay?
