The Condition of the regulator is decent. On initial "inspection" (which involved me looking at it, and you know... looking at it for a bit longer) it seems everything should work fine. Turns out the low pressure gauge actually goes up to 100 PSI which is awesome... better control. The exterior is a bit rugged, some dings, and scratches, but I used to work in a machine shop, and one of the groomsmen in my upcoming wedding still works at that shop, so he said if I plug all the ports, he will gladly buff it up for me.
Anyway... Overall condition I'd call fair. The needle valve on the other hand... that thing is a piece of art! Absolutely beautiful, brand new in a heat shrink wrapped box and all, couldn't ask for more!
