It is pretty much like a group buy locally, only for two people, but I paid for the regs in advance if all two are broken,
Ya, that's one thing that no one ever mentions when people suggest you build your own regulator. There is a failure rate on these things. For every 10 I buy, I have to toss out 3-4. Lately the number has been a little higher. I think the used stock is starting to bottom out a little.
