IMO 240 is WAY too much, even brand new.

http://www.concoa.com/docs/catalogs/...2%20Series.pdf
Page 153 breaks down the numbers.

You can find the 212's on thebay pretty regularly, used and in good shape, for around 50 bucks. If I were paying any where near 250 for a regulator, it'd be a much better new unit, and full stainless. The 212's are good regulators, dont get me wrong, but for what we use them for, are not worth much money.

If your willing.to spend that much for just the regulator part of your regulator, pm AlanLe and tell him what you're after. You'll spend less, end up with a better product and you'll save yourself a ton of frustration.
