Question about the 5-degree frame wedge

So I just received the .45 frame and bottomline wedge that I ordered from a member here, and I'm a little confused about how it works. I don't have my dovetail ASA handy (should be here shortly) to try it out, but does the little allen screw in the side of the wedge just push the ball bearing in the bottom down far enough to securely hold an ASA in place? It doesn't look like it's be real solid, but I don't see any other possibility for how it would work.

That's right. It is a pretty common system, now surpassed by the expanding rail type in most designs. I personally don't like them, for exactly the reasons you said, but it works well enough. I use it on my Phantom with a 50/4500 and it is pretty solid.

Be careful with it, I managed to strip the threading for the side screw, though I was able to fix it eventually.

I'm looking to put a 22ci on it. Hoping it holds up.

Yeah...didn't work worth a damn. Got my ASA, slid it on, tightened down the screw...and it still slides on and off freely. The ball bearing doesn't come down nearly far enough to do anything.

Guess I'll just order one of the CCI ASAs and call it a day.

You can get the cci "upswept" 45 frame and the cci asa will face straight back instead of the slight downward angle. Just an idea if you dont like the downward angle
