This is an air flow problem. One of these is a problem:
  • Your tank doesn't have enough flow - unlikely
  • Something (such as your ASA) is restricting air flow - also unlikely
  • Your inline regulator needs to be cleaned - very likely

The problem is the inline regulator needs a particular hex socket wrench to disassemble. If you're able to, disassemble the inline reg, clean off the old lube, relube the o-rings and reassemble properly and recrono. If you're up to it, you should be able to find out how to disassemble the reg from your manual or www.zdspb.com If you're uncomfortable doing this, I suggest you take it to a local proshop or someone else qualified to do this; the last thing you want is to make things even worse.

your airflow is cutting you off.
before you go and completly tear apart the reg drop some gun oil in the asa and run that through the gun. it will be a temp. fix but it should get you through the weekend until you have more time to tear apart the reg because if you have never torn a reg apart it may take you awhile

I'm having the same damn problem. I tried two or three different HPA tanks and that did not correct the problem. The local PB tech thinks it was my ASA not fully depressing the center pin on my tank but I don't think that was the issue. I was leaning towards the Reg since I discovered my problem and now I may be buying a new one as well as trying to rebuild my stock one. What should I be looking for inside of my reg? Debris or corrosion clogging up the works?

Really, just dirt / sand, etc... Other than the lube, it should be clean. Most likely all it really needs is just to be cleaned and lubed. The previous suggestion of a few *drops* of oil (you don't need much) might be enough to lube it.
