Anyone have a spare CO2 regulator for cheap?

Hey Guys,

I am looking for a spare CO2 regulator. I was hoping to spend much less than $100 which is the average price tag for regulators online. Preferable with a solenoid.

Let me know.

Simon

Didn't say new, and yes I am being realistic.

I think you're going to be very hard pressed to find a (safe) regulator with a solenoid for anything less than $125-150.

This is just about 60$ in my country. And the quality is really good. Easy to control there're nothing to worry about. Used it for a year.

Disagree... I have one been working for four years now ... no problems. I paid $50 for it. I do agree that you have to be a bit more careful especially when it comes to EOTDs. But those can be avoided with vigilance.

Anyways, if anyone has a lead, or an idea, I'd be more than happy to consider the options.
