Default CO2 Regulator Parts Deal Watcher

I'm starting this thread as a place for folks to post deals and other information to help others who want to build their own CO2 regulator setups. The ultimate purpose of this thread is to help people know what to look for and it should be understood this will likely not be a comprehensive list of the best possible deals out there.

Etiquette Rules:

1. Please do not post links to auctions that are indeed auctions. It can be frustrating for members who may have already found these deals and are hoping to bid. If you have a question as to whether an auction is a good deal or not please PM a knowledgeable member and ask in private until the auction has ended. This may seem silly, but it makes it fair for everyone doing the hard searching and research to get a good deal for their hard work.

2. Please only post links to auctions with "Buy It Now" and / or "Make An Offer" options. This will allow everyone a fair opportunity to make a good purchase.

3. Posting links to auctions that have already ended is okay.

APC rules:

1. Ebay links are permitted, however, please do not post links to your own ebay auctions or to auctions of friends on their behalf.

2. APC has a strict no reselling / retailing policy in their For Sale forum. Items for sale should be from your personal collection that you no longer intend to use for yourself.



I'll get it started off...

I might be inclined to shy away from that one only because the seller does not offer returns. Otherwise, it's a very nice reg. Air Products are rebranded Parkers are they not?

I'm not sure if it's a rebranded Parker or not. Air Products has nice regulators though. I know they and Airgas carry the famous IR6000.

I somewhat agree with the returns things but unless you are going expensive most sellers make you pay return shipping and that sometimes is almost the price you paid for the regulator so it's not always a good thing.

yeah pretty risky deal imo. The way the seller described it implies an "as-is" though who knows... message the seller and ask if the regulator doesn't work what his procedure is.

here's a nice rebranded hpt/sgt 500. I've never heard of an HPTC and it looks like a sgt and hpt frankenstein. the casing for the first and dual stage look to be SS though.

I think we should allow auctions that are >100 starting bid to be posted if we've contacted the seller and they're willing to let it go for lower or if we think people will have a good chance of haggling the seller down.

Is this one worth considering? It says stainless but im guessing its chrome.

The seller is listing it as-is and at 70 dollars shipped I'd pass. If you find that the regulator's internals are toasted you'd be out 70 bucks.

Make an offer on this one. it's a rebranded victor hpt/gpt 272. it's so new it's practically glowing haha

I'd offer 30 dollars and see what the seller does. http://www.ebay.com/itm/SERIES-S120-...item1e8a4c864b
