    Do any of y'all know where I'd be able to go to find when a gun was made or registered? The people who made my gun are out of business.

    It was made by Sterling Arms Corp
    It's a 300 model.

    Where would I go to get info?

    Since Sterling Arms went out of business in the early '80's it will probably be hard to find specific date of manufacturing information.

    In 1973 E&R Machine purchased all of their stock making Sterling Arms a wholly owned subsidiary. You might want to try to contact E&R Machine to see if they could help you out.

    If you just want a schematic or parts then go to E-Gunparts. They can get you almost anything you may need.

    Alot of gunshops sell books aswell. Check with the clerk to see if they might have the information you're looking for. Also check with your local libary

    I didn't really find what yo're lookin for, but I did find this. Just some pics and stuff. All I did was type "Sterling Arms Model 300" into www.google.com (search engine) and thats one of the things it came up with. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Go buy a Guns and Ammo mag and send the question in to them. They should answer back EVENTUALLY.

    Does it have a serial number? I can see if I can find out about registration and ask my brother about it. He's a gun fanatic and might know of someone who can find info or he himself might be able to get it. Just let me know and I will see if you like.
