CO2 regulator question

I'm looking at buying another co2 regulator, I found a nice condition airgas 360-2-580-V-05. The owner says it was used for "nitrogen, argon, helium, and other inert gasses", so my question is, is this safe to use?
Correct me if I'm wrong but as long as the gas that was previously used was not corrosive, it would be fine to use.

Yeah, assuming the condition is good, those gases don't pose any problem I know of.

Wel, now this may only apply to Victors and its probably not a "problem" in regards to our use but there can be internal part differences..
e.g pg 3 chart 3
different part number for a CO2 seat vs inert gas..(se seat assembly)

considering the price of used regs don't consider it an issue..

Side question: Does anyone know if an Airgas 360-2-580V regulator is stainless steel? (or nickel plated, etc.).

Thanks!

Do you have a photo of the regulator? Chances are it's chrome plated brass
