F.LLI PIETTA MK-85: Sterling clone in .22

    The F.LLI Pietta’s MK-85 is a .22 LR pistol that is a scaled down semi-automatic clone of the British Sterling submachine gun. Its single stack magazine holds 15 rounds. The barrel is 7″ long. It weighs 3 lbs.

    Apparently the F.A.P. (Fabbrica d’Armi Fratelli Pietta) MK85 pistol was on
    display at SHOT Show. Because of all the new black rifles which debuted, they decided to hold launching it until next year.

    I can’t wait to take this baby Sterling to the range 🙂
