So yes, it can be done, idk if he used an extrusion or machined his own though..

Having been a long time fan of sterlings I was very excited about the new stock class stp. I hoave had 3 and sold them all because I can't get reaquainted with the over barrel cocking after so long with snipers. Undercocking as an upgrade or stock from the factory would be a great thing,

However my biggest beef with them has been the odd fittings on the hardline that seem to always leak. The most lifespan I ever got was 2 and a half days of play before I ended up with a leak somewhere. If I could have figured out a way to keep either of my hawaian style stp sc from leaking I would have had my own undercocking pump handle made and would still own them. In fact I would likely not own any other markers today.

I thought that switching to the VA set up might solve the issue but that one leaked too.

Odd. I am glad to hear it though, as I have been coveting another sterling. I never should have sold my first one. I miss you girl maybe one day I shall find you.

-standard 1/8 npt air fittings
-better grade of aluminum so bodies can be reannoed
-ability to remove bolt for cleaning without removing barrel
-better method to attach feeds - weaver type rail or screw-in
-better stock class feed, large balls can get stuck in the "elbow"
-Clamping feedneck
-improved pickup/hammer attachment so that marker stays timed properly
-availability of back bottle and dropout valve bodies
-simple online storefront to order spare parts
-better customer service/client contact

That would be a good start anyways! I Loved how my sterlings shot, but I finally go rid of them due to the above issues.

You can already take the bolt out wo/removing the barrel and the feed attach is gret. Just would love more feed options like a clamping neck and left/right and a 15 stock class tube

It wouldn't be hard to convert any sterling from a single guide rod to a dual guide rod with a removable bolt. Thread both sides of the pump handle, created a sled like a ccm t2 and have either a bolt with a pin going through the top or the side.
