Advice on the value of Pre Sample factory Sterling MKV

Location:

I was hoping someone on this forum could provide a rational valuation on Pre Sample factory Sterling MKV. The gun is in pristine condition and has the studs for mounting an optics base.

I sold one about two weeks ago, new condition without the rail studs, for $8K.

Both the Post and Pre Sample Sterlings were of limited import compared to other foreign subguns of that era. HK did what they could to limit the Sterling's popularity in the U.S. by buying Sterling and putting them out of business.

Thanks for the info. Very interesting about the history of Sterling and the HK connection. Any other info provided is much appreciated.

MKV with studs is rare in a real Sterling (Post or Pre Sample), at least in the U.S.. You could buy the studs and install them. Transferable DLO/Andrewski/Melton MKV builds were the best -correct narrow slotted tubes, original parts, and most had studs installed. They were even more quiet than the real thing.

I am aware of the DLO/Andrewski/Melton MKV builds. There is a dealer in macon that took payment on one and has yet to produce any gun.

Hope it wasn't "The Rifleman".
