put a hopper with paint in it in the feedneck. lock the feedneck. then carefully screw your high pressure air system into the ASA. screw the on/off knob. then press the on/off button and make sure your hopper is turned on as well. then proceed to pull the trigger at a speed to your liking.

Did you buy it brand new or used? Make sure u get someone to tech it out first before u turn her on. I heard of horror stories of people cranking the Reg on other guns when they sold it, those ppl didnt know and shot out there noid when they aired it up.

just remember to lube the regs and bolt up oftenly. Also, change your orings like evry 4-5 cases. Just get a full rebuild kit from markerkits.com for like 100
(exagerated) rebuilds. They're only like $20

Not everyone thinks of it, but it is a good precaution - with a new or used marker.

Read the manual. I personaly dont like the stock feedneck, so I bought a DM7 feedneck for 10 bucks from a guy at my field. Other than that, remember to clean and lube it after every day of play. Its not like an Ion where you can clean it once a month and it will still work for you.
