Dm14 Asa lever locking up help!!

Ok i just got a dm14 and sometimes the Asa locks up and i cant turn the air on. The lever usually will turn half way and then it just locks up. I took it to my pro shop and the some what fixed it. It locks up every now and then. They couldn't find what the actual cause was but now everytime i air it up it leaks untill the lever is fully turned. It shoots now i just dont know why the lever sometimes locks up and or why it will leak untill i fully turn the lever. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I have heard this is due to the air pressure being too high. If you lower the output pressure in your tank it should make it easier to turn. I think it was in a video on YouTube by hustle paintball.

he's talking about if you look in the asa where the tank screws in. there is a piece in there with 2 holes in it. you can use the multi-tool to either turn it in or out.

If u remove the shims in your tank and convert it to low pressure it makes it so much easier gas the gun up and to turn the Asa on and off
