I was looking at the arrow precision sterling pump marker. Kinda want to buy one seeing that I have 4 pmi trracers now. Thought about buying a new pump to add to my slow yet steadly growing arsenal of markers. I need some thoughts on it. Air usage? Easy to clean? co2 and HPA compatible? problematic? Thumbs up or thumbs down? Briefs or boxers? colby or jack cheese. vanilla or chocolate?
If you can't hack it, then I suggest you pack it!
I'm on it like white on rice, with a glass of milk in a snow storm.

Those are odd marker things, never seen or used one sadly

You are correct, Esk.

I have one, thanks to Legato. It shoots great, easy enough to clean, gets about 25 to 30 shots on a 12g. Hpa will work fine on it.

My only complaint is that it's twice the weight of my Phantom. I prefer my Phantom thouggh.

Used to wear breifs but moved to boxers a few years ago.
Jalapeno jack cheese.
Mint chocolate chip with chocolate sauce.

it does look heavier but solid. plus it's in my price range. I still want a phantom but they are still to expensive for me :( I got to hold one for 5 seconds before though.
mint chocolate chip with chocolate sauce really? YES! i like very much! great success! High five!

They are nice markers. Nelson/Sheridan Hybrid. I have a friend on MCB who LOVES and swears by his. They are nice markers, and they have an auto trigger built in stock since they run a nelson valve. :D

If you get the newer versions it is easy to change between SC and Hopper fed. And they are spyder threaded. Only downside is the air fittings are metric. So if you want something outside of the stock configuration you need to get someone to drill and tap it for 1/8" NPT.

Older Sterlings are usually hopper fed. I forget the barrel threading, but it definitely wasn't spyder

Here is a French made Sterling Clone

They came out in 04, and i heard the prices on them were comparable to Carter and PPS prices, like $500-$600 US

Yeah, but those French versions don't actually shoot... they just drop on the ground.

EDIT: Sorry for the spam, it was just too easy.
