Sterling Auto-Rocker Semi Automatic

This is a Sterling with a semi pneumatic Auto-Rocker kit on it that was made by Sterling. The Switch is built into the frame vertically.

I didn’t think I’d ever come across one of these kits but sure enough one popped up for sale in the UK. 

Here is another Sterling Auto-Rocker kit I’ve seen which Renick Miller and Bad Boyz Toyz posted a few months back:

I thought these Auto-Rocker kits were made in 95-96, around the same time or slightly before the introduction of the original Sovereign but the page on warpig (linked below) is dated 1-1-94, much earlier then I imagined.

The date of 1994 would actually make sense though since I think this is the design that Glenn Palmer consulted on (vertical switch) and make sense in the timeline of the Blazer’s production.

Edit: Was wondering why my bolt wasn’t closed and realized I didn’t add a hammer and main spring back into it when I reassembled.

A neat example of the MF2 Micrococker by MF2 Designs. A rare Autococker from the mid to late 90s that was very compact and designed in Canada.

Identifying Carter Machine Autocockers

Carter Machine Autocockers came in many styles and designs. Some mods were for performance and others for aesthetics. In this write up I list what I've found.
