I emailed them asking for pics of the different colors and found out these are avaliable in two forms HPA and CO2 friendly. The HPA version comes with the WGP regulator and the CO2 version comes with a nice ribbed expansion chamber.

nerobro - how is the trigger? How much side-to-side play does it have? Is it heavy compared to a normal slide frame?

Does anyone know what type of springs these things take? Nelson?

They look similar to Nelson but aren't, at least I don't think they are. Also I'd love to see a USA distributor set up, I know a few people that would buy them if they did, unfortunately that's a significant cost and probably isn't feesable.

With the Autococker making its come back, I could see these things being somewhat popular in the US. Some people might like the feel of the Resurrection or Twister but not have the money to drop on one. These would be a reasonable option for those people since they are going to $240 NIB. It would be a smart move for a company like Compulsive Paintball to pick some of these up. They already have a cocker following and experience getting items from the UK because they sell Belsales parts.

The trigger is "firm." But it's smooth, and bouncy. Like a good Cocker should be. There's a little bit of a pop when the sear drops, which helps complete the cycle.

The trigger plate fits quite tightly, there's not a lot of play. I could measure it tonight.

I will get some video of me shooting it saturday.

If you could measure the OD of the trigger plate with the ID of the frame with a caliper it could give us an idea of the fit of the trigger plate in the frame.

Ask Mike, he is the Powerball rep here. They have been doing runs of Sterlings with right feeds and the older Sterling threaded bodies, so it's a possibility.

Anyone know where I could get some Sterling Paintballs in the US? I bet their quality is better than most of the paint we are getting now.

I bought my first sterling off of you at one of the IAOs, cool to see you're still going strong.
