In Fallout New Vegas, I would like to get La Longue Carabine from Corporal Sterling, but am unsure how. I have very low sneak, and it doesn't even appear in his inventory to be stolen, is there any easy way to get this weapon that does not involve angering the NCR?

I used a stealth boy and took his head off with the Knock-Knock. The NCR didn't care. –  user30726 Aug 11 '12 at 15:15

An alternative to killing him is to pickpocket the ammo he carries, then fast travel and come back.

When you return he will have the gun in his inventory available to be stolen.

Yeah, I did something like this and it worked. –  Maardvark Dec 4 '11 at 21:27

If you don't want to kill him but don't care about losing a slight bit of rep with NCR, you can try and shoot the gun out of his hands then pick it up. If you do this and travel away from the airport (or Camp Hope, depends on where he got sent) and wait three in-game days, they've forgotten you and everything is back to normal.

The only way to get the rifle is by killing Corporal Sterling and looting his corpse.

The best ways to do this without angering the NCR is to use the "Sandman" perk, or get a silenced sniper rifle and shoot him in the head from a position where you can not be seen.

I stole all his ammo for it & fast-traveled then came back. (as stated above) Then I pickpocketed it from him and fast-traveled away from the area before he could take it back. Just as someone else stated above, wait 3 in-game days, so the tensions will have cooled down. I hate how Sterling's Perception is so high, you can't just pickpocket it from him without getting caught. I tried multiple times (at least 30) and got caught every time. It would be just much easier to kill him or shoot it out of his hand and then high-tail it out of there. Any of those 3 methods will work. So just choose the one that fits your play style and is easiest for you.
