ASE Utra .223 Moderators

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a dealer down this end of the country (Essex)?

I cant seem so tell the difference between the Jet Z Compact and the CQB looking online. 
 

my new tikka is threaded M14x1.
 

Ideally I want something calibre specific rather than .25.

On my Tikka 223 I have a SL5i ,light compact and does the job very well.

Jackson Rifles will send to your local RFD and if you have an existing ASE moderator they do a trade in 😎.

I swapped a T4 for the SL5i.

The CQB is shorter than the standard Jet Z compact.

I’ve got a CQB on a Sako in 223, it’s a nice mod but heavy, I’ve also had the Ase Utra SL5i which I’d say is better buy, lighter (350g), smaller and just as effective.

Well, I got in touch with Jackson rifles who were very helpful and said that my local dealer who I bought my rifle from, was setup and had dealt with them before. 
 

I sent an email, but I’ve been told the SL5i is only available in stainless steel? 
I thought it was available in black too? 
 

I then got the price for a CQB, which I’ve seen for £340 online, £470!!! Apparently there has been a price increase!

I will give Jackson Rifles another call tomorrow and see what the coo is, otherwise it looks like it will be a drive to go and pick up a CQB at a reasonable price.

I spoke to the ase rep at the british shooting show. the mods that you know of now are due to change they had different stock at the show. might be worth having a look on there web site. could also be the reason behind the price hike.

In what way? 
 

Their website hasn’t changed in about 3 years that I’ve been looking on there occasionally. 
 

I’ve just ordered a CQB from Essex Gun. They got the price from the 2020 price list so unless it’s changed in 3 months?

I thought hard about the SL5i, but silver really won’t go on the gun and I’d want it to be a hard finish like cerakote which would be extra expense. 
 

I had a look at a SL5 (old model) which was .25 cal on a used rifle and it was quite weighty but not heavy at all. 
 

Difficult to choose when you cannot get hands on with these moderators or get a feel for the size and weight.
