I'm building a couple of Sterlings off of the Wise Lite seconds receivers bought through the forum.  I've picked up the bulk of the SA parts from Apex but they no longer have the firing pin/striker available.  Does anyone have measurements/diagram or alternately, a source where they are available from?

I have a original sterling fp.  Is that the same as the wise-lite?

The full auto Stirling fires from an open bolt with a fixed firing pin. The Wise lite semi-auto conversion modifies the bolt drilling out the original firing pin and cutting a slot for a separate spring loaded firing pin/striker combination allowing it to fire from a closed bolt.

I am also building a Wiselite second gun, But I have a british semi auto to use as a template.  I have to cut the rear pertion of my receiver off and straighten it.  I need to fit the bolt over the block in the bottom of the receiver and weld up a crack in the stock.  The block for my trigger group is too big so I have to gring that down.  I also need to fabricate another firing pin and the block that connects to the back of the foring pin.

Thank you very much!  That helps a lot!  By the time I ordered my receivers, Apex was completely out of firing pins.  They had all the other parts, however, so as soon as I sort out the firing pin, I'll be finished with the build.  I've been out of the country, but now that I'm back, I can finally get back to work on this...
