I just landed a brand new Concoa 432 SS for dirt cheap. :-) I will use this for my tank instead.

If you're eBay savoy and you wait for the deals, you could probably do it between $150-200 easy. It really depends on what you want to accomplish. Knowing what to look for is a must.

I look, a lot...

The Sgt500 and the stainless mathesons are a bastard to find in good condition. You have to have some serious Google-foo for those.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a brand new concoa 432 and a hpt500 for a good price. However my dream is not completed until i get the sgt500 and 3810.

3810? Same as the 3120 series except stainless steel which is a dull silver. Get the chrome brass bro, shinny stuff!

hunted down two of the same Matheson, the stainless steel version 3810 last month, and both built. unfortunately one of two complete stainless steel 3810 systems was put in the wrong package and sent away, oh well, my bad luck is another guys good luck.

3810 is not hard to find, but SGT500, rare, a SGT160, rarer.

have two SGT500 and a SGT160 currently.
