It has a Nelson valve (with carrier) in the bottom tube, so I'd say more Nelson. The only "Sheridan" thing about it is that it is in two tubes.

Put an electric frame on a Sov3, Lapco barrel, vert feed & color match to my Sterling & I will buy it.

Mike, that's the plan for me after I buy the Christmas gifts and all. I already picked up a semi for my daughter to use so for me the next purchase (paintball related) is an STP!

The washers go inside the Hammer Carrier (where the spring slides into), I always have a few in my tool kit. I have the same vintage marker as the one you picked up and you are going to love it. My Sterling is quite possibly the best pump I've ever owned, the smooth-ness of the action, Auto Trigger and reliability. You cant go wrong with a Sterling!

So is this thing more sheridan'ish or nelson'ish or in a class by itself?
Just call it a hybrid that's awesome. Built for speed and smooth action, just not super efficient, about average.

Mike, Would the velocity adjuster in the STP work in the in his gun?


Also, What kind of price would one be looking at for that kind of setup?

thumper, it appears the gun you picked up is and early to mid 90's Sterling by looking at the frame (single screw for the grip handle). I also noticed you have a squared off fore-grip, does that fore-grip have a velocity adjustment hole in it? I have a Sterling with the single screw for the grip handle but mine has a rounded fore-grip and there is no adjustment hole on mine and I was just wondering if you got lucky enough to have the newer fore-grip to make the velocity adjustment easier.

Hi Lex. It's a Pre-Arrow version. You would need a new pump and pump arm before you could add our velocity adjuster.

don't think so.
also: old F1-Illustrators velocity shims work just fine.
Seems like each shim = 10fps ish. shoots nice and quiet w/ J&J ceramic barrel. Kind of a cross between a phantom and a vintage sniper IMO.
