Marzocchi 66RC

So I just got this 66RC for an awesome price. Problem is I dont have a shock pump but I looked online and there is an adaptor for the air valve on the fork that looks like a schrader valve (however that is spelled). What do you guys know about this feature, also what do you guys know about this fork in general cuz I am curious and want it to work well for me cuz I have heard so many good things about them.

the adaptor looks like a schrader valve, could I just use a tire pump to pump up the shock?

I guess you could - just be careful you don't overinflate.
