New Designz 15 Degree ASA Adapter with Gauge Port Reviews
This adapter will accept any 1/8"NPT gauge. Knowing your input pressure will help prevent causing any damage to the solenoid. A must have for any tuning freak. Also it has a 15 degree shape for a more erganomically correct fit.
The New Designz 15 Degree ASA Adapter with Gauge Port is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Bought this ASA because I wanted a black one to match my existing color scheme, and to have the tilt, which is more comfortable for stream shooting, as it puts the hand closer to it's natural position.
It was VERY easy to install, and looks great. All you have to do is remove the vertical reg, unscrew the original ASA from the body, grab the original o-ring off the old ASA, put it on the new one, and screw the new one on. The way it is milled, it slots up with the body, and is pretty much impossible to do wrong if you have any common sense at all(if you do manage to screw this up, you shouldn't be allowed out of the house without a helmet, haha). At any rate, is looks and feels much nicer that the original factory piece.
The ability to put a gauge (SP makes one, nice little mini gauge, 300 psi max, perfect for the Shocker) on is GREAT for tuning, so you can see if that new reg is recharging fast enough, or if your new bolt really DOES let you lower input pressure, or whatever...
At any rate, if you feel the urge to change your stock ASA, go for this one, it's PERFECTLY fine, but those are my two pennies...

Gauge for input pressure.
Tilt so you can get your finger around the reg.
None, spun gauges?
The asa is good, thats why i bought it. It has a gauge so you can see your input pressure, this is helpful for velocity and when you get new bolts. It is tilted so the macro goes with the gun, and doesn't bulge out to the side of the gun, it looks smooth. This also means you can get your finger around the regulator.
My downfall was they i used a centerflag tank with a 800psi output. i feel this caused the asa to "spin gauges". this is when the "face plate (metal peice with numbers inside gauges) spins around so that the red gauge mark-line-thingy doesn't match the number, and renders the part almsot useless. gauges are expensive and i had to replace 3 before figuring this out.
I switch tanks to an awesone Angel Air tank output 450 psi. I had to get the reg rebuilt (new orings and seals redone) by a tech for $20. now it works fine.
