m16 ASA

picked up a Kingman hammer from a member, dig it thanx bud, but i fully intend to run this rig with a baby hopper, and a 9oz.

main question: what do i need to put a bottomline ASA on this style grip?

side question: i have an old BE CroMo 9oz, which is what i want to run, as long as it gets hydro'd, is this tank viable?

thanx to all

They were called a Lonestar plug, fit into some grips (Lone Star grips especially, the ones with a hump in the back fit easier, or you may do some filing, if you can find one). Or just replace the whole grip with a CCI or ICD 45 grip adapter. Or various other manufacturers examples over the years.

There was a time when you would have tons and tons of options.
But you can still find Lonestar ASAs on ebay, etc, for pretty cheap. $15 or so.

If you want more flexibility, you can get Lonestar adapters that take existing duckbill ASAs, which are nice in case you would to add a stock or reg, or drop, etc. Maybe $10 for plastic ones, $15 for metal.

Of course, plenty of 45 adapters which would have the holes drilled for the duckbill. Though there was a variety of different hole patterns. I have 3 different ASA patterns on my various 45 grips.

I used to buy up old Mokal guns on ebay for $10 or so, just to strip off the Grip/ASA, and dump the rest. Or sometimes mavericks with nice Europgrip/ASA. There were some neat grips back in the day, like the Gator, and Ramlines. You had PSG1 and Revolver style grips. And everyone loves SP wood grips on a 45.

Technically, you can still get weird grips.... made for AR15s, but lots of those have large palm pads that might not work on most paintball guns.
