PERFORMANCE

Make sure the plastic piece (shown
on page 20) is not missing

Turn the velocity adjustment screw
(part #29) out/counter-clockwise
until desired velocity is reached

Operating a paintball marker below 70°F (21°C) will decrease the
number of effective shots. The same is true for operating above 70°F
(21°C). Many factors affect velocity and accuracy, including brand of
paintball, type of paintball, amount of CO2 in source, lubrication, barrel
condition and temperature.

Velocity is too high

If the velocity spring (part #32) is
new it may need to be broken in;
until you are able to achieve the
desired velocity

Turn the velocity adjustment screw
in/clockwise until desired velocity is
reached

Velocity

Velocity is too low

Internal parts may be dirty or o-rings
may be damaged. Refer to
“Cleaning and Maintenance” on
page (9)
Check bolt (part #26) to make sure it
is not installed upside down. Both
holes on the bolt must face
downward

DISASSEMBLY CONTINUED

GETTING STARTED

Diagram 1-11 Cocking Lever Disassembly

IMPORTANT: Paintball approved eye and face
protection must be worn at all times when handling
this or any other marker. Always make sure that
when not actively firing the marker in a paintball
game that the marker is in ‘SAFE’ mode and the
barrel plug or barrel cover is properly inserted.

B

A— Begin by unscrewing the Cocking Lever Screw with a flat or
‘—’ screwdriver. (part # 2).

** NOTE: TAKE A CLOSE LOOK IN THE SIGHT HOUSING IN
THE ORDER OF THE COCKING LEVER SPRING (part # 5),
THE COCKING ROD (part # 3), AND THE COCKING ROD
GUIDES (parts # 4&6) AND MAKE SURE YOU PLACE THESE
BACK IN THAT SAME ORDER.**
B— Pull them out towards the direction shown.

For re-assembly on any of the previous disassemblies shown
should be done in the exact reverse order of the instructions
provided. For added support we are providing these video clips
on our website at www.ariakon.com for you to download during
anytime of need. Again, Please pay special attention to all the
***asterisks*** noted.

1) Ammo Box (Hopper):
Make sure that the feed port is clean to keep the paintballs
feeding properly and to help avoid breaking any paint. Also,
make sure there are no sharp edges or debris in your hopper.
Install the hopper into the feed. Now open the lid on the
hopper and fill with paintballs.
2) Air Source Installation:
First make sure the marker is in ‘SAFE’ mode. Next you need to
cock the marker by pulling the Cocking lever (part# 2) all the way
back until it clicks. To install the air source, insert the tank valve end
into the Air source adapter (part# 34). Twist the tank clockwise into
the marker until you hear and feel the tank ‘engage’, then give the
tank about 1/3 turn more so it does not become loose. Your marker
is ready to fire once you switch it from ‘SAFE’ mode to fire mode.
3) Adjusting the Velocity:
To adjust the velocity, use the velocity adjustment
screw (part # 29) on the rear of the marker directly under
the bolt. Turning the adjustor in or clockwise will increase the
velocity, and adjusting it out or counter-clockwise will lower
the velocity.

UNLOADING YOUR MARKER

DISASSEMBLY CONTINUED

IMPORTANT: Paintball approved eye and face
protection must be worn at all times when handling
this or any other marker. Always make sure that
when not actively firing the marker in a paintball
game that the marker is in ‘SAFE’ mode and the
barrel plug or barrel cover is properly inserted.

Diagram 1-8 Removing the Feed

CAUTION: WHEN REMOVING YOUR AIR SOURCE MAKE SURE THE
BRASS OR NICKEL PLATED VALVE IS SECURELY ATTACHED TO THE
CANISTER, ROTATES WITH THE CANISTER, AND DOES NOT UNSCREW
FROM THE CANISTER. THE CANISTER SHOULD UNSCREW FROM THE
PAINTBALL MARKER IN ABOUT THREE OR FOUR FULL TURNS; IF YOU
FINISH THE FOURTH FULL TURN AND THE CANISTER IS NOT UNSCREWED FROM THE PAINTBALL MARKER, STOP. TAKE IT TO A
PROFESSIONAL. ANY FILLING, MODIFICATIONS, OR REPAIR TO YOUR
CANISTER SHOULD BE PERFOMED BY A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL.

First make sure your marker is set in ‘SAFE’ mode and your
barrel cover, or plug, is properly installed.
2) To unload your marker remove the ammo box completely or
empty it so it is free of paintballs. Then point the marker in a
safe direction, remove the barrel cover, take the marker out of
’SAFE’ mode and fire several times to be sure there are no
paintballs lodged in the chamber, then immediately return the
marker to ‘SAFE’ mode and replace the barrel cover.
3) To remove a charged air source turn the cylinder
approximately ¾ of a turn counterclockwise. This allows the
tank pin valve to close so that no CO2 will enter the marker.
With the barrel plug, or cover, properly installed point the
marker in a safe direction and discharge the
remaining CO2 in the marker by pulling the trigger until the
marker stops firing. (This may take 5-6 shots). Make sure to
return your marker to safe mode when finished
discharging any remaining CO2.

A— Begin by removing the 2 Feed Screws (parts # 11) with a 3mm Hex
tool.
B— Pull the Feed (part # 10) towards the direction shown.

NOTE: If your marker continues to fire after you have turned the tank
then the pin valve has not closed yet and you may need to unscrew the
tank a little further. If you turn the tank ¾ of a turn and it begins to leak
before you pull the trigger then you have turned it too far and you may
have damaged the tank o-ring.

A— Begin by pulling the Front Hand Guard Retaining Pin (part #38) out.
B— Pull the Front Hand Guard (part #37) towards the direction shown.

CLEANING AND MAINTENENCE

Diagram 1-6 Removing the ASA cont...

Normal maintenance and cleaning will reduce the majority of any possible complications
with the performance of your marker. For best results we recommend cleaning your
marker after every use and replacing the o-rings after every other use. Use a damp towel
to wipe off paint, oil and any debris. Do Not use any cleaning solvents such as 409® or
Simple Green®. Use of such products on your marker may cause corrosion and/or
damage the internal parts, and WILL void your warranty. When oiling the cleaned parts
we recommend using any paintball brand paintball gun oil. Use of other lubricants such as
WD-40®, graphite, and oil designed for actual firearms may cause build up and/or damage
the internal parts or seals. Use of such products WILL void your warranty. In order to help
you maintain your marker, We have provided these following 11 steps.
WARNING: Before conducting any maintenance, remove the air source from your
marker (Refer to ‘Unloading Your Marker’). Make sure your marker is in ‘SAFE’ mode and
your barrel has either a cover or plug inserted.
