vert asa screw

what size is the vert asa screw, that holds it to the body?
and how does the valve and spring go in? does it all go in the back, or does the spring go in the front, through the front block? im asuming that it doesnt, but i also think it might

The stock vert asa screw is a 12pt 1/4-28 screw roughly 3/4" long. The valve/valve spring typically goes in from the rear of the body- you can change the valve spring by removing the front block entirely, but the valve will NOT come out from the front of the body.

If you can find one, replace the stock 12 point screw with one that has an allen head. I had to buy a special set of 12 pt sockets just to get the vertical ASA off. who knows what they were thinking to NOT use an allen head screw.

i ordered a few SS ones from Bolt Depot and replaced all my ASA bolts on my cockers. Remember the first Cockers had CO2 bottles mounted directly to the ASA before there were remotes, expansion chambers and inline regs, so you needed the flat top to push down the pin which an allen head can't do. I guess they just never bother redesigning that aspect of the cocker.

Good advice.
These were easy to find at my local ACE hardware. The barrel head has the same profile as the 12pt head and allows you to install/remove the ASA with an allen wrench. I've replaced all of mine.

i totally did not know that....i knew people use to mount the tanks that way but never thought of the screw pressing the pin.....learn something new every day.
