You need to wind it 30 times. The Star Feeder (Cyclone) loads 5 paintballs with each revolution. The stock tippmann loader is a 150rd Indian Springs "Maxi Loader", so 30x5=150. It was not designed to be wound more than that, so if you tempted to throw on a larger hopper from an A5, keep that in mind. Many of the F/A's out there have broken springs from overwinding.

You can read the complete manual at vintagerex.com

You will certainly feel when you can't go any further. Don't force it, but keep in mind 5 balls per turn.

ok so after running a hopper through it, some more questions, is it possible for the rate of fire screw to back out? i was starting to get burping (not 100% sure that the fill was great...i didnt do it ) and it was happy on HPA under 1K (which i thought sounded normal) but it looked like the screw might have moved out I backed it off a small amount and the marker seemed fine....again it might have been that he co2 tank had time to warm up.....thoughts anyone?
