    Exclamation Sterling SAI 102 launch - intro sale (held over)

    Another non-restricted option! This time; without the Canadian NR tax!

    In September at TACCOM, we debuted the Sterling Arms International line up:

    https://www.canadiangunnutz.com/forum/showthread.php/1912617-Stirling?highlight=sterling

    We were hoping to have this out in the public long before this, but we did not want to beta test on the Canadian public ;-) and took our time. But it is now time….

    As discussed previously: the design is based on the NEA 102 as we bought the “technical data package” off of them and therefore… the FRT access. Given the RCMP delays on new approvals, we thought this was the fastest and safest route to market.

    Background:

    Many on this forum will know that I have been involved as a managing partner in the UK with another UK Heritage brand; William Evans Ltd. (https://www.williamevans.com/ ) for almost 10 years. This has given me the opportunity to meet other manufacturers and innovators around the world. In this time I had the honour and opportunity to befriend Mr. James Edmiston. I do not think there is anyone with a more interesting history in the arms industry. He has been involved with the Sterling brand for many decades and is probably the most knowledgeable individual in regards to military weaponry I know.

    Sterling Arms International (SAI) is a commercial affiliation of the Sterling Armament Company ( https://www.sterlingacl.com/ ) based in the UK. The goal of SAI is to offer high quality commercial sporting arms at an affordable price. SAI is not trying to be the cheapest. It is trying to offer the best return for investment; basing the sales price starting from the manufacturing costs and working up: Not just pricing what the market will bear.

    Using Mr. Edmiston’s experience, we have been able to properly manufacture a reasonably priced selection of parts and pieces to offer to the Canadian market.

    At this time, we are only offering kits and parts. Full rifles will come a little later, but they will be branded “Edge Customs” guns as they are, in reality a mishmash of numerous manufacturers. Stay tuned separately for those.
    We have personally built and tested over 10 of these “in-house” and with the IBI barrel; are really happy with our results.
    Receiver Specifications:

    The SAI 102 Receiver is based on the DPMS “high” picatinny, but uses a standard AR15 LPK with the exception of the front pivot pin. This is included with all receiver sets.

    Manufacturer: Sterling Arms International Inc.
    Model: SAI 102
    Calibre: Whatever you want, but we have IBI barrels in .243, .308 and 6.5CM in stock. Our IBI barrels are all rifle length gas systems.
    Action: Semi-Auto
    Upper Receiver: Aircraft Grade 6061-T6 Aluminum
    Lower Receiver: Aircraft Grade 6061-T6 Aluminum
    Finish: Hard Coat Anodized Class III - Black
    Classification: Non-Restricted (as long as you put a 18.6” barrel on it)

    Sterling Arms International launch specials:


    In order to get some of these kits out into the hands on builders, we have decided to run a special for the next week:

    We are offering 3 levels of kits:

    1) Basic: Upper / Lower (includes a Strike Industries dust cover and front pin) $459

    We have them in stock... I hate, hate, hate "pre-orders".... We may run out of some of the smaller pieces / parts, but we'll get those to the buyers pretty quick.

    Also... Dust covers will now be Strike Industries as the metal ones are weeks away and I don't want anyone waiting that long....https://www.strikeindustries.com/sho...r-for-308.html

    Yes.... how may would you like? :-)

    There is still a little confusion here in the shop with the kits, given the combinations, but yes... We are good to go!

    wait so you guys are using the same data as was used in the disaster that is the bcl 102, which is up to its 7th generation and still has issues. your price points nice but why would i go with a rifle with the same design as the other disastrous 102's when i could spend a bit more for a stag 10?
