Thread: ASA for Luke's mini-vert frame

    ASA for Luke's mini-vert frame

    I just traded a z-grip for one of Luke's mini-vert frames. Problem is, all of my on/off ASA's look horrible with it.

    So what do you guys run with your mini-vert?

    Pics/links of them mounted would be really helpful.

    Thanks

    i've always thought the smaller on/offs looked good with the skinny vert frames. so like, those cage asas or a cp mini rail with mini on/off asa.

    i don't think the mini direct mount looks that bad either. here's another example.

    I have an empire mini rail and this thing is tiny, but it still sticks out past the bottom of the frame on one end or the other. The lines just aren't good for this frame, but the cp mini on/off i have seems to be the right size. I just don't have a cp rail to check out.

    Also, i have a cage ASA, but it doesn't autobleed and, while that's fine on my cockers, i hate asa's that don't auto bleed on mags.

    Thanks for posting those links.

    Use the CP mini and no rail. You can have Luke dovetail the frame. Would make for a nice small and clean setup.

    well, if you go for a different rail, make sure to get the mini cp rail, and not the larger standard sized rail. the standard rail is much larger than the empire mini rail (i've got both sitting right here in front of me).

    mainly because they're not yet available in lefty.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, guys.

    Cyco, are the empire mini rail and cp mini rail about the same length?

    i do not actually have a cp mini rail, just the standard. i think the mini is a smaller length (especially at the top) but a little more depth than the empire micro rail. i'll try to calculate the size and get back to you.

    here is ans gear's video covering the different cp asas and rails; he uses a vert frame in his demonstration so that should give you some idea.

    I know lots of people like them, but I've just never been a fan of the direct mounts.

    depends on the frame. for me, all i care about is getting the correct reach, getting the correct rise, and having something that will position the tank so that it's not in the way of my wrist. sometimes it's done with a direct mount, sometimes it's done with a rail and asa. use what works.

    I just picked up a silver cp direct. Looks like that's the only one that doesn't have a weird relation to the rail.

    Thanks, guys. I'll post pics when the ASA gets here.
