:confused: What does it mean if the co2 tank is hard to take off? what can i do

The pressure of the air in the tank presses it against the ASA making it hard to turn. Try to turn it while firing a few dry fires and it should be a little easier to remove. That will also save your o-rings on the tank from breaking.

Then you can get an ASA with an on/off or an on/off adapter for your C02 tank.

Orrrrrrrrrr, get an on/off asa with a bleed hole in it....easiest thing in the world after that - no more blown orings or trouble unscrewing your tanks.

questin, if you get an on/off asa valve, do you ever have to remove ur air source

I guess not, except to fill it (CO2). I find it much better to remove the tank EVERY time you finish using your marker. Its safer, and your going to clean the marker so you don't want the tank on for that!

A way to stop ruining o-rings instead of getting an ASA is by slowly unscrewing the tank and when you hear it start to hiss dry fire the gun a couple of times. The ASA with the bleed would be your best option though.

Drop a little oil in the ASA, it is a spyder a little oil wont hurt anything.

Also do what the other fine fellows said.

Yeah ASA on off with bleed or i just unscrew about half way, then dry fire til all the airs out of the marker, then screw the tank off. Saves Orings and it also doesnt give you a suprise "WOOSH".
