ASA Help

I picked up a Angel A1 for a decent price, but it did not come with an ASA.


What kind do I need? It looks to be a rail mount, but, Im used to old style gear, where you mount the asa to a drop, and so forth.

Can someone point me to a few on/offs that would work?

any dual screw mount will work below the rail, you just tighten the screw down from inside the grip. Alot of people (if its not a rare gun) even mill the rail off

If you want rail mount, you have to find an angel reg.

The grip frame uses industry standard dovetail rail mounting as well as industry standard 10/32" bottomline screws, so you can use any rail mount or direct mount ASA you want. You can use the bottomline holes to tack on a third party rail if your tank reg is too close to the grip frame.

Sounds vaguely familiar, but don't remember much in the way of details, like the seller or anything.

They work, same design as the a1 ones. The only "problem" I can see with them is you have to screw the knob all the way down for the air to engage.
Probably fine, but if you shoot at high rates of fire, there is a slight chance of it not recharging fast enough. With that said, I never had a problem.

That would work, but I'd go more for something like this, especially if you want to use the dovetail.

What Sight Unseen said. Although that style of mount is by far my favorite for older Angel's without the dovetail.

Awesome. I greatly appreciate the help guys!

Coming up to a new problem, I have no ASA locking screws. Anyone know the thread size and length needed?

10/32 imperial, as is the industry standard. Length will depend to some extent on what rail or ASA you choose - you want something long enough to bite, but not so long that it protrudes into the frame or touches the circuit board.
