Length varies. A cut down spyder spring will work.

I am using old Spyder springs to tune with. Cutting a main down to Sterling length will give you a valve spring from the waste.

cool, thanks you guys....do you think that I'd be able to go into a home-depot or a lowes with the spring and be able to find it (in a higher tension that is)...i mean when it comes down to it, it is just a spring...you just need the correct length and width.

You might be able too, but if your going to cut down a spyder length spring you might as well go to a paintball store or buy online a spyder spring kit.

Buying a spring kit will probably give you several options with heavy and lighter springs.

Just my thoughts and 2 cents

Surf the BST on here, SOC/KUSA & PBN for spring kits. Your bound to be able to build a good set rather fast.

As in the springs or just Sterling stuff?

The hard to get Sterling stuff is probably due to the fact they dont push the brand very much over here & in turn dont care a whole lot about keeping a stock of stuff. The one time I did call the US rep. he sounded like a good fella & willing to help. 'JaneK' the UK rep on here seems to be a good person. He sent me a couple logos to use on my jersey that I still havent finished.

Yeah it's just a pain, because my sterling is my baby, but she definitely takes a little bit of work to maintain. But when i say she put's out....man she put's out.

How much are you using it? My Sterling is my main gun right now & I might drag the mag out for a game from time to time but I still dont have alot of work to do to it. Wipe it down when Im done for the day. Couple drops of oil in the female Palmer & one in the AGD M-CA. Ill pull the bolt from time to time to see if those orings still have a little oil on them & thats it.
