15LB CO2 with regulator...buy or not?
 
Hi,

Locally being sold...for $150. With regulator. I think a good deal eh?

It all depends on what reg you are getting and the age of it. Not to mention if the cylinder has been serviced recently or not. Its like saying "I got a TV for $150, good deal ?"

Just waiting on an email with all that info. Montreal is very problematic to find such things..and when you do, they cost a pretty penny. The chap seems to know his beans.

I didnt mean to sound like a smart a$$ , although after reading again it does sound that way.
If you are happy with the price then thats all that matters.
Although not many people like the reg i have (Milwaukee) , i have yet to have a problem with it. its cost me $90 new for the reg and $65for a 20lb C02 tank full, so we are on the same price.... but if your reg is a dual stage or a better quality reg then i would say go for it.

Lol! Posts crossed in cyberspace. I didn't feel smartassed upon at all, in fact I appreciate the concern!

As it turns out, the regulator was rusty, as if some water had fallen on there and the tank was empty. When I suggested a fair price of $80, he balked and informed me that someone would take it for $150...good luck to them!
