Exclamation Bought new CP ASA On/Off and my stock asa screws don't work.

I bought a CP dovetail mount, and when installed on my A1, my stock asa screws won't tighten down my CP mount.

Where can I get some screws that will tighten down my on/off?

Thanks!

Are you running the stock a1 rail with the 'spreading' screws? You really need to crank them down for aftermarket rails, but don't want to crack the rail. Either run 2 grub screws down thru the rail mounting screw holes, or run the stock Asa. Why not just run the stock one? A much nicer profile then any cp

The Stock one is ugly. No thanks. Besides, I was running a Inline Maxflo, there so was no need for the stock asa.

Pictures are up.

As wolfy said, just tighten down the screws some more, and be careful not to crack the rail. If you still can't get it to hold secure, use 10/32" grub screws down through the standard bottomline holes.

Alright,

So I cranked on the asa screws, and it works. Like WOLF, and Doc stated, I had to really tighten them down... Wow. Didn't realize they needed to be tightened that much. Just always wanted to make sure that I didn't strip anything or over tighten and crack the rails.

On a side note though, on the right side of the CP asa, where I'm going to plug the hole with a grub screw, I can only get it to go halfway in, and that's with cranking it in. Even used some oil, but it didn't help. Suggestions?

Use a shorter grub screw and/or make sure it's NPT threaded. The ASA should be NPT, which is tapered. So a non-NPT (non-tapered) grub screw will not fit as well.

I need to specifically ask for a (NPT threaded) grub screw when I go to the hardware store, correct?

Thanks for that info.

NPT screws will usually be in the plumbing section (NPT = National Pipe Thread).
