Is this a quality set up and worth $200 US dollars? I've been looking on line but I haven't seen anything I can compare to it. It's a used set up so that's why I'm asking. Is it a quality product that's worth buying second hand?

For $200 I get the following.

Double stage re-branded Parker Hannifin Veriflo regulator
Clippard Mouse solenoid valve, with three way manifold, expandable two extra ports in 10-32 thread.
Swagelok stainless steel M series metering valve.
JBJ style inline glass bubble counter
Cross split rubber core inline check valve.
Clippard high quality industrial polyurethane air hose, 7 feet

Any and all input is appreciated.

That is a good deal indeed, plus you get that 20 lb Co2 tank. Now, I'm a kind of worry, you might want to check it out and see if it works. Some of the items you list are worth quite a bit, not to mention a 20 lb tank too.

Or maybe I'm just mad I spent way more than 200 for my set up. Either way, yes good deal if everything is in working order.

That's exactly what I was thinking flyinghellfish. It seems to good of a deal. I've been trolling Craigslist for weeks and I was first person to hit him up. He wanted to sell tank plants and everything but I offered two hundred for his rig and he said yes. I immediately thought aw crap I'm wrong about the quality or something is wrong with it all. He claims the tank is empty but Im not going to pick it up until Wednesday. Think I should Ill ask him to fill the tank and cover the cost so I can make sure it all works?
