That's the drawback with the Mini
Since they made the ASA the reg as well, it was tough for them to make it on/off, so they didn't.
All that pressure stays between the tank and the ASA, making it hard to unscrew, hence the reason Empire markets the Mini as recommended for LP tanks, to make it easier to unscrew.

Add some lube to the ASA threads, or you can get an inline On/Off ASA adapter

Not AZN level price, there's not too many electro markers priced at the same level as the Talon.

Yes, screws into ASA, tank then screws into it. There is large outer ring for turning air off/on, then if you need to remove the on/off from the marker, you simply twist from the smaller inside ring.
