It depends, I never buy a regulator from manufacture direct distributor/retailer.
and actually I bought that Matheson 9400 back in 2011, when I started research on what I could get to build a high quality system. People only knew Victor, Victor and Victor at the time and kept beating the dead horse.
Same as Burkert 6011 solenoid, Ideal needle valve, all dead horses that some people kept beating, never had the will to expend their sights on what they don't know.
I bought that Matheson 9400 for $35, if I remember it right.
It is rare, and a 1/4 NPT port version even rarer, for almost two years didn't touch it because just couldn't find anything suitable to go with it.
teflon and less torque right?
teflon and enough torque

Nice fitting, really cost but looks like you are going to build this system to serve your planted tank hobby for a lifetime.
