So i've been seeing a lot of ads for sterlings and clones (like the hammer II)
but i've never had the chance to actually break one down... so im a bit curious.
Is a sterling basically a stacked tube nelson based gun?

Think Nelson valve train with a airway up through the bolt, the best way to discribe one is like this, a Nelson/Sheridan crossbreed. I'll get you an animation for a Sterling real quick.

Once you have used a sterling, you will understand.
I would tend to think that the hammer cocking and bolt movement actions being in seperate tubes and supported by a more sturdy setup makes for a smoother stroke.

It's seriously the best stroke.
I love my sterling, and it's one of only 2 guns that i will never sell.

Mine's an OLD one, by Proline/ Lada, not Arrow Precision. I love it to death, although it's a pain to change velocity without a few modifications (which I've done/ had done).
Smooth, soft stroke, insanely accurate, and overall just a great piece of work. Loud as heck though (unported barrel) and it has no return spring, which, coupled with a smooth stroke, means I double feed when I go on a jog.

New ones are also great. I have a couple. My favorite are the first gen vertical feed ones that were the first to have the good aluminum .45 frame.
It is the best pump stroke for unregulated co2 I have ever seen. CCM guns have a lighter stroke but they are big guns with regulators made for primarily HPA.
Also, one of the best features is that the AT is completely internal and works flawlessly and doesnt make the trigger move at all when you at.
Really good guns.
