All run with female PPS stab regs and either 13/3000 or 45/4500
If you want to run open class pump or modified stock then you need either the hawaiian style or a bottom line for he vsc style and a tank.

Good barrel kit is a must.
Strengths: Functional auto trigger
spyder threads for barrels
interchangable feeds
Weaknesses: Umm color options are limited. I'd like dual detents.
Review: I have been pumping paintballguns since before there was another option. I always liked the old style sterlings, but they ended up needing detents added and barrels were always hard to find to darn near impossible in recent years. In recent years when true stock play made a comeback there was no sc version of the old sterlings.

NOW enter into the scene the new sterling. With a moderate price tag noe than a basic phantom or sniper but less than a CCM or something custom. All I can say about this version of the sterling is WOW.

It has all the good of the old ones.
Buttery smooth pump stroke
functional autotrigger
compact size
light weight

PLUS they fixed the issues with the old ones
Stock with a detent
Spyder threads for barrels

And they added MORE

stock with 12g changer
Stock with convertable feed system

SO right now you are asking, as most people do, "What do you mean functional autotrigger? My ccm, pps, maverick and or phantom pump has an auto trigger."
Yes they do but do they work? Can you put ball after ball in close proxinity? In my experience no. The single tube nelsons have to heavy of a pump stroke and to little mass so when you pump you pull way off target. Making the auto trigger pretty useless. The ccm, snipers and pps guns can have autotriggers. But, it'll cost you Quite a bit more, on a sniper or CCM. The pump strokes on these can be light enough and guns heavy enough to stay on target when pumping, but when you pump them the cam action of the auto trigger moves the trigger and thereby your entire gun. Not as much as with one of the single tube nelsons but enough to make that quick follow up shot pretty useless. The sterling has a roughly nelson based valve so no trigger movement on pumping just enough mass to keep the gun on target when pumping and super light pump stroke. THAT IS A FUNCTIONAL AUTO TRIGGER. I can put a revy full of balls into a gogle sized spot at 90 feet with good paint and 13 cuin hpa for a stock. In less than a minute with the sterling. Try that with any other gun you can buy new for around 300 bucks. It aint gonna happen. Now when you are talking rec pump play ROF is not an issue but doing that with "rapid fire" means that the consecutive shots are also consistant in accuracy and velocity. That means when you pop off that one shot you will have all the consistancy and accuracy you need and if you get into a tight spot and need the autotrigger you might still hit something with it.
Conclusion: If you are buying a new pump, this is what you want. Haveing used everything on the market I will say with confidence that this is THE best out of the box pump available.

Wish I could give it a 15 of 10
10 out of 10
