Co2 setup

I picked this up yesterday as part of a full setup and have no plans of using it. I was wondering first if its a decent setup and second what would be a realistic asking price to sell...it has a drop checker with extra fluid and tubing as well.



Thanks, Robert

You could probably get $120 for it. Someone pieced it together. It's a Cornelius reg with a burkert solenoid and what looks like an smc needle valve and a Milwaukee bubble counter with a clippard check valve in between the two. I can't the the needle valve well enough on my phone to positively Id it.

What would Honey Badger do?

Thank you for your reply! Here's a close up of what I'm guessing is the needle valve

The needle valve is the silver object just to the left of the solenoid (using that photograph for reference of direction).

Eh - now that's I can see it better... I think(95%) it's a Clippard needle valve.

With a #10 cylinder(with current hydro test), $180. Maybe more... I quoted the $120 for the reg only. The drop checker adds no real value. It will cost a lot to ship the cylinder. I'd sell it locally if possible.

Yessir and thanks to all. I am looking to sell locally but had no clue what to ask.

Do you have the nut for the top of the bubble counter? The bc is useless without it. Regardless, if it's used, I think $120 for the reg is a bit on the high side, but not far off. I'll go with $90-110 range, though it looks very clean if it's used. You might pull off $120 with the extras.

And I agree that craigslisting the cylinder for $50 or $60 is reasonable.
