New!

I recently inherited 2 pistols and was googling to find some info on them (CANT) and was led to an old thread here so I figured I would join and see if anyone here could help me!
2 pistols- both sterling mark 7 9mm, 1 c4, 1 c8. One import marking cassi Colorado springs the other america corp something MD USA. Both in boxes with a TON of magazines and both have a wall mount.
From what I've read some are full auto, pretty certain these are semi. But other than that I can not find ANY info, or even a value, for either of them. I tried to contact sterling armament in england but was told afterwards by a collector store/ museum that they recently closed. Any info PR help or leads will be MUCH appreciated.

Here's what I've got.

These were made by Sterling Armament Ltd in Dagenham, Essex England and imported by Cassi, Inc Colorado Springs until 1990.

They made the following:
Parapistol MK 7 C4, a 9mm 4 inch barrel "paramilitary" pistol, crinkle finish.
Made in 10, 15, 20, 30, 34, or 68 round magazines. Discontinued in 1989.
Value for 98% condition $1,500, down to 60% at $700.
Add $50 for 30 or 34 round mags, $125 for 68 round mag.

Parapistol MK7 C8, 9mm.
Same as C4, only with a 7.8 inch barrel.
98% $1,500 to $750 for 60%.
Same for magazines as above.

Sterling MK 6 9mm blow back semi-auto carbine.
Shrouded barrel, side mounted magazine, folding stock. Discontinued in 1989.
98% $1,750 to $795 in 60%.

The two pistols were basically pistol versions of the carbine.
The carbine was a semi-auto version of the British military Sterling L2A1 submachine gun.
All American models were semi-auto.

AR-180. This was a British made Armalite AR-180 carbine.

For more info on the pistols, do on Gunbroker.com to see if any are for sale currently.
Do a "Finished Auction" search to see what they might have actually sold for in the past.

Do an internet search for "Sterling MK7" and you'll find info:

NOTE: There was an American company named Sterling that made inexpensive semi-auto pistols. They had no relationship with the British company,

Thank you so much!! Lots of great info! I have a BOX of magazines, some are "stacked", like two magazines welded together. Really neat so if you run out of bullets in one just quickly eject, flip it around and insert from the other side, what do you think those are worth?

I'm not very familiar with the Sterling's but I'd assume the 68 round magazines are just two of the 34 round mags welded together.
In that case, the value would be at least the $125.

On the market, especially as an auction on Gunbroker.com they might bring more, even much more.
