Another Sterling on eBay

I found this today on ebay. This must be an early Sterling since it only has one screw on each side for the grip and Sterling Threads for the barrel. I noticed it had the newer fore-grip though so I'm not sure what generation this is.

the sterling is definitely older so the body should be sterling threaded. My guess is that is a lapco raptor to spyder adapter milled turned down 1/4 inch to screw all the way in.

I agree on it being a Sterling Thread.
Look at the extra barrel that comes with the gun, it appears to have a Sterling thread.

On the way to my crib..

my first sterling. I still remember the first time I saw one in action...1991-1992 I think .. I've wanted one ever since.

Yall will have to help me figure the particulars out after it arrives.

oh.. btw.. don't tell the wife.

I'm glad someone on this site picked it up.
If the first time you saw a Sterling was in the early 90's you'll be right at home with this one because I think that is the vintage of the one you bought.
