Easy to install
Purchased the ASA with some hesitation because I was unsure of whether I would like the 15 degree look and feel. I'm happy to say that I really like it. It gives my Bushmaster a different look and adds comfort to my grip. I don't have long arms but do tend to favor the feel of the 15 degree ASA over the original setup. Installation
A breeze once I got the original HPR setup off my marker. It was a matter of putting the ASA onto the bottom of the marker body and threading the included bolt up through both. The bolt is bored through and this is how the gas gets to the marker. Just don't forget the o-ring that goes between the ASA and body. Fit and Finish
The fit was fantastic. It sits flush with the front of the Bushy body and has two outward tabs on the sides that fit perfectly onto the marker and do not allow any turning as with other ASA. The finish was good though it was your basic black and comes in silver as well. I wouldn't say this is a weakness but if there was any improvement to be made, I would suggest more colors to better match the markers out there today.
One last thing. As I mentioned earlier, the bolt is bored through for the gas to travel into the marker. Even with rapid fire, I did not notice any starvation problems which leads me to believe that the borehole is more than large enough to feed the marker.
Overall, I really like this ASA. It does exactly what Zenitram says it will do. It gives you a different grip option, different looks to the marker, and setup that is rock solid on the marker. No starvation issues.
I'm giving this a 10. The lack of colors would knock it to a 9.5 for me but this is not a weakness of the product, just "dressing" for it. Since a 9.5 is not an option, it gets a 10.
The ASA was a little pricey, but I've learned that you get what you pay for. It's made of pretty high quality material. It's easy to install and looks great. It gives a slightly different feel to the gun.
Make sure that you have an allen wrench big enough to get off your stock ASA. Other than that it's a breeze to install.
If you're going to upgrade your ASA, then this is probably the best route to go.
None, since Zenitram is the only company that makes them!

I got this ASA with my B2K which I bought used, and I have to admit, I was skeptical of the feel. Boy was I mistaken. I love the feel of it. I have big hands and really long fingers, so this helps a lot. One problem I have with it is that it moves the reg too close to the gripframe, so I can't unscrew my reg without taking off the frame. Shouldn't be much more of a problem once I get my SS hose.
stock reg. This is nasty because you can use any other regulator.
b2k with the 15 degree and a maxflow inline
versitability with regulators, gauge tap, COMFORT, looks hot, fits the body well. quality machining
it costs money, you need to replace the stock regulator, color choice (black or clear)
Zenitram is the only company who makes them! nothing for comparison, but its great. Much better for holding if you have big hands, and MUCH more consistant if you use an inline max-flow. I have to give it a 10, because it is the only kind on the market so that makes it the best! could be the worst as well, IF IT WASNT SO FREEKIN COOL!
if you have the money to customize your bushy, get it. nice custom flair with functionaility; comfort, use of other regulators, and of course, style. it is perfection milled out of aluminim.

zenitram mag. 45 grip
vert max flow
looks good, stays on, does its job
only comes in black and silver
For people that know zenitram products, they know they make good stuff. If you need a standard ASA, or want a 15 asa, this is a good one to get. It has a lot of flow, and looks pretty cool on bushies. It also helped me get a better grip on the reg. I didn't like how close it was to the trigger frame, but after i bought this, it helped. Only bad thing is the lack of colors. If you can't install this, then you probably can't paintball very well.. its that simple. Definitly another nice product from zenitram.
If you like the look, and need an asa, look into these. the price is pretty good, and it will be a nice adition to your bushy/bko

ASA Bolt is kinda weak...
I've had a 15* ASA on my cocker for a while, and I loved the way it felt. So when I found the Zenitram 15* ASA I immediately switched it out in place of my Sonic ASA. It made a world of difference for the way the gun feels in my hands. A big plus is that it has a gauge port. My friends Lapco ASA doesnt' have a gauge port... that's kinda lame...
The only weakness I can think of is that the bolt used to attach the ASA to the gun is really weak... My first one snapped when I was screwing it into the gun... So I had to get a new one. It was only 5 bucks, but still... I shouldn't have needed a new on in the first place. The problem is that the walls are kinda thin, but it allows a max amount of airflow... so its a toss up.
Other than a weak bolt, this is a great product. Anyone who's used a 15* asa knows how comfy they are compared to vert regs. Get it, you'll love it. Just be careful with the bolt.

ease of install
I wish i would of had the money for this earlier.
Let me recommend this company to all bushmaster owners. The Employees that i delt with Handled my order quickly respectfully and informed me of how my order was being processed. I also recieved my asa the same week as i ordered it. Customer service goes along way these days i really enjoyed my purchase. Now onto the product, The Adapeter its self is so easy to install just unscrew your old regulator and ASA (you have to take the tray off it isnt a problem just mentioning) then simply screw your new 15* asa in place and waa laa. The only minor problem i had was with the positioning of the air intake from my bottom line. The air elbow into the regulator was too close to the trigger guard but that was simply solved by adding another O ring. Any how This ASA is really nice fit and finish wise mine had no blemishes no missing parts nothing. The look is, i dont know different i guess. It isnt bad but once you pick your gun up it feels so much better then the stock regulator positioning. The old one was to tight for my taste. Withthe angle on this asa it gives my that little bit of extra room to make it comfortable and i must say, it made all the difference.
Get this over any other asa, There is not very much difference in flwo rates or any goofy thing other then looks and comfort. also another reason to purchase this adapter is for nice customer service i cant say enough about this. They will not dissapoint.

I am a fan of 15 degee ASA's on my paintball markers. By having my hands a little further apart it adds a good feel and balance to the maker. The Zenitram 15 degree ASA comes standard with a guage port and lines up with the front of the bushmaster body to give it a very clean and uniformed look.
If you like the feel of a 15 degree ASA, then this is a great purchase.
