AGD Carbon Fiber Frame on a Sterling

I've heard that it's possible to mount an AGD CF frame to a Sterling with some modifications. Does anyone have any specific information on how to do this the right way?

it probably bolts up and the sear hole needs to be drilled. you will likely need the older style trigger though.

An older style trigger won’t be a problem. My Sterling is one of the older styles.

Automag frames will work. It's an easy mod. Not long ago there was a pic posted of what to do. I tried searching but came up empty handed. I remember the pic was posted in a thread that was not about the frame mod.

I believe I saw that once before too. Like you, I was unable to find it again.

I donít know anything about the frame in question but the stock frame on an old Sterling is a dirt common WGP product (Cocker compatible). You can put the Sterling stuff inside of it so my hunch is that yeah you can do this.

Here's how I put them on cockers. I've seen them on brass too, lately.

I still have the two superbolts I did this on. Really like them.

The difference is, the Sterling has a rail that the frame bolts onto. In order to mount an AGD frame to the rail, the frame needs to be drilled and tapped. That's the part that I don't want to screw up.

Ahh....the spacer thing. You’re concerned about the little countersunk screw that is head up, not the two frame screws, I see.

Line up the spacer to the frame. Install the one screw that fits and it will show you were to drill. Since this is a plastic frame I’d see if I could use an insert or an oversized screw. If not, use CA glue or red Loctite or something. You can’t tap plastic with no help and expect it to hold on a pump. The human will break it eventually from all the pumping craziness.

(If none of this makes sense I apologize. I’m at work and don’t have a Sterling in front of me).
