listen to this man ^^^^ a ton of QEV Diaphragms lol, if you are not planning to upgrade it to a 2013 internal because they might discontinue making QEV since almost everyone upgraded their demon to a 2013 internal and lastly buy your parts from Reaper(ACI) he's legit

Use a tank that has an output pressure of ~ 550 +\- 100 psi and get use to shooting the gun that feels like its shooting low velocity. Dont worry about the qev as long as you have the right tank output pressure or if you have 2013, bettery takes so long to charge and you have to monitor the charging cause you dont want to over charge the battery. It will damage the battery or even the board. You can use dow 55 as recommended by vanguard but people also uses monkey poo, vaseline or slick honey for winter. I use a slick honey but i also have viton orings in my bolt.
Barrel is limited on size but .685 that provided is sufficient, very very accurate and quiet. It takes time to get use to holding the gun cause i have a short arm so i had to invest in a 50ci tanks.
Clean the gun after play, lube the gun before the first game of the day, mow some faces and be a good tatoo artist.

All good points to follow

As xmc pointed out the battery does take time to charge.
Don't over lube.
Get a MP tank with an output of 450 to 650 for optimal functionality.
I have a blended lube which works perfect in all temperatures
ACI recommended using Vaseline on all inner orings and Dow 55 on all outer orings (and shuttle orings if 2013) of the bolt and Dow55 in the Reg
Get spare QEV diaphragms if 2012 or 23x1 shuttle orings if 2013
Stock settings work perfect just adjust the debounce, don't try to reinvent the wheel until you have a few cases through it.

This should cover the basics.
if you run into any problems post in here first, we have quite a few guys including myself can help you work out most kinks. ACI Reaper is a certified Demon tech

Got some polished bolts for that thing^ Make it perform a bit better.

And in regards to lube, the static (non-moving) o-rings and gaskets just need to be wet. The dynamic (moving) o-rings will need to be lubed like normal. 2012s I like to use Vaseline and get rid of all the other lube.

Remember.....if the gun won't cycle change the diaphragm. They may look fine but they wear out. Keep them dry too, no lube. Lube the bolt every time you play.

I'm new to the family as well. Just got mine in Friday, used 2012 with 13 internals. Cleaned, replaced an o-ring, relubed and took to the field. Only shot a hopper through it but I love it. Was reffing a tourney and they let us play with the players on the woodball course. All I can say is Dear Lord the supply of win in this world is getting low cuz they make demons out of it! Smooth, quiet, deadly accurate and no leaks for a marker with many o-rings = incredible! 1-balled 4 players. Can't wait to unload a few pods in a match. Using GOG/smartparts SL33K but gonna get slick honey. Watched Chris Hazzard the Canadian Honey Badger on Youtube and want to get the bolt super smooth like his bolt maintenance video. Mine seems slightly stiffer than his when he pushes the bolt back and forth. Marker has 20 cases through it... do I need a complete rebuild? It is truely an amazing piece of craftsmanship and I wish I would have joined earlier.

If there are no leaks, why would you even consider rebuilding it? Polish your bolt, or buy one from me, then you'll be more slick than you could ever need.

I cannot seem to find it on your website. If you come across a purple back-cap I would buy it/ trade my chrome one for it.
