Small drop forward recommendations

I'm looking for a short drop forward that will take a standard asa that uses screws for my shocker. The one it came with makes the tank a little too short and a little too low for me to hold it comfortably. Any recommendations would be great! I'm running an 88/4500 on it and I need it moved forward maybe 1.5 inches with minimal drop.

My usual go to is a CP Micro Razor. Has just enough drop down to clear the gauge on most older HPA regs.

They also made one called the Micro Drop...

...absolute minimum amount of drop down with about 2" forward. However, do be aware that depending on your tank setup, this may make it difficult if not impossible to unscrew the HPA tank from the gun with out removing the ASA.

The tank is a pure energy 88/4500 the asa has a slight angle on it (think tippmann 98) so I'm not worried about not being able to unscrew the tank. It is something I've given thought to though. I'll look at those drops you suggested. The drop I have on it now is 5" forward and 3.5 down

Yeah, that's a rather big drop you got there.

The Micro Razor needs a rail mounted ASA, like the CP on/off. The other one, Micro Drop, can take the screw mounted ASA.

If you really want to keep the ASA you got, and the CP Micro Drop isn't quite right, also look at the Shocktech drops...
https://www.ansgear.com/Shocktech_Dr...ail_s/1488.htm

Their number 2 drop is about 1.5 inches forward, and a touch lower than the CP Micro.

The number 3 is one I also use on multiple guns, often paired with a simple duck bill ASA...



...might be a bit lower than you like though.
