I'm sure you can find a lot of opinions about the Milwaukee regulator by searching here, but my experience with it is this:
It is a very usable regulator. But, it is cheap, which means you may have problems with it that need to be fixed. Mine had a leaking bubble counter, that forced me to remove the bubble counter entirely. Mine also had the solenoid fail after a few months, so I had to replace it with one from Rex Grigg. It requires that I re adjust it several times over a couple of days each time I refill the CO2 tank, in order to maintain a constant bubble rate. But, once I get it stable it requires very little attention until the CO2 tank again starts to run out of CO2. Then, I have to adjust it often to avoid the bubble rate going much too high. It has two main advantages - it is cheap, and it has a pressure adjustment knob, which some cheap regulators don't have.
