ABM bridge to Hipshot A?

    My first Stambaugh has an ABM bridge, while the others have a Hipshot A, but all three are the same spacing. I'd really like to swap from the ABM to the Hipshot as I'm kind of weird for consistency AND I hate how the ABM is adjusted.

    I really don't want to pop the bridge off and measure, as I'd really like to avoid messing up the holes by unmounting and re-mounting a bridge more often than necessary, so does anyone know whether the holes on these two bridges would line up and it'd be a direct swap?

    It is not a direct swap, and you would have to drill new holes.
