Sterling STP/STP Turbo
Excellent pump gun. Of all those I've shot this is the most consistent, most accurate, smoothest pump of them all. Very few broken balls (even on really high humidity days). If I remember right (been a while) the velocity adjuster was easy to access and once it was set it stayed pretty constant.

My sterling STP (from SP) came with the spring and service kits.
Also, the stock barrel is very sweet. No noticeable accuracy
difference between it and a longer std SP barrel.
The forest green and the dark blue are both dark and pretty.
2 of the 3 we bought had to have the pump handle sanded a tad
as it was tight on the barrel.

Yeah right. I called on this and production has been pushed WAY back until late summer, if at all. They claim they're European buyers were all kinda pissed about the whole thing and so they decided to introduce the Rocker instead.

I did see a prototype of the Sterling Semi about a year and
a half ago. It didn't seem all that great and had tons of
regulation problems, but it was a prototype. At least the
prototype used exactly the same technology to turn the Sterling
into a semi. Besides for the green anodizing it looked a lot
like a typhoon. As for a self regulating regulator I'm not sure.

Rumor (thanks to Andrew H. Lory : firstname.lastname@example.org) has it that the Rocker (and the Sovereign?) will be making their debut sometime in Augus
