Just picked up a Sterling
 
I have recently bought my first Sterling and I have a few questions for you guys.

1. The previous owner purchased it in 1995, and he says that it is an early one that does not have a serial number. My question is, how many were made prior to them being numbered?

2. Any specific maintenance tips?

3. The pump stroke has wore down a little bit of the anodizing, any way to further prevent this from happening?

4. Any way to lighten the pump stroke a little? I think the contact with the barrel is making it a little more rough.

5. The previous owner also said that it is an STP, however, it is rightfeed and does not look like the current STPs, any info?

2: The stirling is simple to maintain as it is like any nelson valve but instead of the gas going through a powertube it is routed up through the bolt in the top tube - That is the only difference. When i had one i lubed the bolt after every use as well as the fake bolt thing in the bottom tube (The thing that grabs the hammer).
I also used to take the whole thing apart about once a month to check all the o-rings and lube up everything that moved to increase effiency.

3: Maybe some clear laqure spray paint?

5: The new one is just refined. I belive the one you own was made by a different company from the new ones. It is just a new design but is still an STP.
