Is this correct?
Until the men in white coats drag me away to a 'secure location', yes.

Interesting.

Do you have any plans to offer these with a different barrel (or no barrel at all) or are we stuck with the lead pipe?

Lead Pipe? You besmirch the good nature and skill of my craftsmen at Arrow Precision? You, sir, have gone too far!

There will always be a stock barrel on the marker. I suppose it's so that people who are new to the format will be able to use it 'out of the box'. I can't see us invading the aftermarket barrel business at the moment, but there are things happening here that are very cool. This morning, we assembled the clamping feed-neck for the STP/Jubilee/Stock Class body and here she is:

Mike - the clamping feedneck you got there, it will fit a Jubilee? Does it need a male pipe of sort?

Hi, Surein! It will fit a Jubilee, an STP and the Stock Class model too. There's a collar in there that is held in place by the feed-neck and the bracket. We're looking to see if we should make the collar part of the clamping feed neck, and thus do away with a screw, or if we should leave it as it is and make different height collars available. It's all still experimental and we need your feedback. Tell us what you think. :-)

Hi Mike - I personally wouldn't mind having the collar built in so it becomes a one piece feedneck. Let me know if you have one in black and i will buy one off you.

Thanks!

I have a sterling threaded body. A friend gave me a CP ego feeder. I will cut a part of the rail to have a very low body a clamping feedneck... But i can't say all... it's a surprise for the next year (i hope february)...

Whoa, that is one nice feedneck.

I think we are witnessing the return of the Sterling.
