Alrighty.

Would this happen to be the set screw?

Unless the gun is "cocked" your gun will spring back without a return spring, once aired up and cocked you'll see it doesn't return like without air.

2) The pump stroke really doesn't seem THAT smooth. Maybe that has to do with the weird springyness, I don't know. Regardless, my prostock feels smoother at this point.

You'll see once aired up the gun should cock really smooth depending on how tight the spring is. The screw in the Fore Grip (velocity adjuster screw) has a lot to do with how it strokes.

3) Is it not supposed to cock without air?

I have a Proline Sterling and it will not cock unless it's aired up.

The set screw Tinman is referring to should be on the back surface of the bolt. You can see where the screw is on mine at the back of the bolt in the picture I've included.
I colored my answers in RED text to answer the questions that were asked in the beginning...

I hope this helps answer any questions.

Tinman- It looks to be a screw, it's directly above the hole for the pump arm.

Turbowagonman- Wow, that pretty much covers everything, thanks

Last question. Any recommendations for an aftermarket barrel? I was looking at getting a CP one piece and freak boring it, but I don't know how well the barrel would work with the Sterling pump handle :P
