Sterling barrels

All, I need help. In my old age I forgot if there are any compatible barrles for the Sterlings. It's a newer vertical. Please help! Where can I get them if possible.
Thanks

There's a chance it might be Spyder threaded, as I think they were 60%/40% Sterling threads/Spyder threads. Raptor/F-1 Illustrator barrels work as long as they are turned down to eliminate some of the threading.

You'll need to mill about 1/4" off the shoulder of the barrel.

^ And depending on how deep the threads run you will need to mill off a few threads to allow the barrel to screw in all the way.

Why do I do everything backwards... I took 0.25 inch off the body instead of the shoulder, and tapped deeper into the body instead of milling off some threads

It just means I get to use any raptor barrel I find on the body, instead of having to mill a bunch of different ones.

I don't know that I hacked away at anything. I carefully cut back the front of the breech, and rellieved some area where the barrel might bind. I've done a little polish on it, and if I ever get the money together will have it all ano'd... it's beautiful.

Any one try a freak on it yet? I remember seeing someone with one, but i was also curious whether you have to modify the pump handle to fit it.
