Sounds real good but not the oringless bolt.

There is an industry standard for air fittings and I can't easily get whatever Sterlings are now. Please go back and conform to the industry standard so we can get basic air fittings without shipping them from Europe.
need be on every page.

Not saying it probably can't be changed, but it doesn't really need to be changed. I'm guessing the guys across the pond will get parts here soon enough.

There are 2 issues associated with changing the thread on the SC STP valve to 10-32.
1. Is there an easily accessible connector of the same type that we can use and that could take a compact hardline like the one that is on there right now?
2. Making that change would mean we & parts suppliers need to stock 2 different kinds of valve bodies and fittings.

We will solve the problem in the meantime by making sure you can get the necessary part easily.

All I think he's trying to say is that the number one issue with current sterlings is the non-standard air fittings that are prone to leaking and the need for that to be upgraded can't be over emphasized. It doesn't literally need to be on every page of course.

I can't speak for everyone but I'd rather have a less compact hardline / macroline if the trade off was a less problematic one. As it is now many go to efforts of having the valve modified to take standard fittings or source an older model or 3rd party valve.

Edit: On a side note I don't get why the hardline is on the left side of the gun where the pump rod is when it could have easily been run on the right where there would be no clearance issues involved.

I've seen clearance issues on guns with the valve tapped out for macroline fittings. If there's some slop in the pump arm it hits the larger than stock air fitting, or the line gets in the way when separating the pump arm from the bolt. It's not a problem with an unmodified gun but that's because of the smaller non-standard fittings. Obviously you can't account for modifications but it's a very common one. Just saying it's one of the quirks of the gun that don't make any sense to me.

Aren't phantom hardline fittings 10-32 threaded? Why not use the same ones.
