I'm looking for some Sterling magazines for my SMG, however I want the ones that are smaller then 34 rounds. I hear there is a 15 or 10 round magazine? Where can one get these? I've tried google without much luck.

You might need to make your own from cut down full length ones.
Got access to a sheet metal brake?

You can shorten these magazines to three rounds as LucasFilm did for Star Wars blasters. ;) So it can be done.
But prices I have seen are $53 to $75 for one in like new condition. I have shortened a M1 carbine magazine to 5 rounds and a 30 round Thompson magazine to 20 rounds (back when they were <$15 a piece). I am not sure if I would shorten a Sterling magazine myself at todays prices.
Originals can be found used, good to very good condition, Numrich Arms Gun Parts Corp. $39.95
I would tinker with a cheap used one if you go that route.

Ok I have done a bit of research. Sterling will also feed Sten mags. Sterling and Sten will also feed Masterpiece Arms 9mm mags.
Are there any shorter Sten or MPA9 mags?

Ok... Says this ten rounder is for certain masterpiece arms models. The models they are for, show also shipped with 30 rnd (32 rnd?) magazine in states that allow, and the 30 rnd (32 rnd?) mag they have for sale says for use with ALL masterpiece arms 9mm models, which looks like the same TAPCO mag available for the sten as well, which should then also work in a sterling.
