Seeing as this is one of the earliest versions, has the brass-lined barrel and the wood grip panels, I wouldn't take anything less than $200.00 for it.
If you check your intrenals you could determine if it's an "STP" version. These have lightened hammers and a mirror-like polish on the hammer and pick-up.

This is a really nice gun, and deserves to be played with.
You can do a lot with this, and you'll love it.

I would say sterling either proline or lada(rounded pump handle makes me think lada for some reason) manufacture. I think stp turbo's came with a brass lined barrel.

I think in the current market you may not be able to get a full 200 out of it. If it is a an stp, then your chances are better. The internals would be the telling factor. The fact that you have a matching asa points to it being an stp as well. Some of the old sterling stps had a velocity adjustable bolt. Check and see about that. It doesn't have an anti-double feed detent, which stp's usually had. So it is either a bronze body or really old stp. I'm not sure when they added the detent for stps.

once you figure out how to get your velocity set the next to do is a barrel system. Either getting wedgits for the one you have or getting it freak bored. SuperStanchy is repurposing phantom barrels with sterling threads and freak boring them at a reasonable rate. I just got mine today and it looks very nice. Good paint match is key for consistency and stopping rollouts. Unless you have really large bore paint in your area.

Now that I have it in my hands, does have shinny internals and a brass lined barrel. Barrel does not want to come out, are they all thread? Forgot to look for the velocity adjuster.

yep should be threaded just like any other barrel. Try running it under the hot water. Might help loosen up the breach enough to unscrew it. Probably just overtightened or gummed up with old paint. Hopefully no one loctited it. Once you get it free you can stretch a tank oring over the shank of the barrel past the threading to help keep the barrel from coming loose.

I would say you have a Lada Sterling STP Turbo.
