Yep and we've all seen how long it has been on the block unsold. I think that the $300-ish price point is about the limit for sterlings. If some of the issues were fixed that everyone seems to want maybe $400.

Personally my 2 big issues are I'd like to see undercocking and a better va mount. The minor issues are personal issues with leaking in the new sterlings air fittings and the cocking rod slipping out of the bolt.

While that coolhands sterling is nice looking, and I was tempted to buy, it was also unfinished and didn't address some of the issues I would like to see fixed in order to plunk down that kind of cash.

I think the $300ish price point is what most people would be willing to pay for any NIB mid-range gun whether it be pump or semi. Of course I like that price point, but if there are more high-end qualities I'd be willing to pay more. Granted they'd have to do quite a bit of upgrading to get to high-end status with the sterling.

I agree with this 100%

When you talk about a better mounting point for the va, what do you have in mind?

The way it's designed to be done is like this:

I think they are talking about a rail mounted vert ASA similar to what Im running. I tend to forget I have it set up vert during play & never grab it like the agg crowd does (Ive watched a few of them pump & then grab the reg before they shoot & swap like that every time)

That's difficulty in retraining the muscle memory. Remember, this crowd put down their electro-whatzits with the vertical regs to playing pump/stock because pump/stock is the new Agg. Us Old School guys still hang on to the pump handles.
This *new* way of playing pump, cock, then grab the quick changer before firing actually gives us old school guys an advantage, that split second they need to take their hand off the pump and grab the quick changer, leaves them exposed for a bit llonger, look for it and use it to your advantage........

This would require a modified rail that goes between the frame and the body and holds the trigger mechanism in place and a modified hard line.

I'm sure a custom shop would be able to do it.
