Is this a good deal?

Is this a good deal? Should I get it? Its going to be for my 25 gallon tank. Don't forget that shipping is $24.

I believe the tank has a life time on it. I am not sure how long it is good for before it cannot be filled. The gauge setup with bubble counter you can buy new for 100 - 120. for both. I have seen new tanks for about 60.00.As of right now it's 121.00 with 1 1/2 days to go. Just be careful not to spend too much on used items. You would still need a reactor.

Some will say yes...some will say no....shop around, do research and decide if it is a good deal for you.

You might have to get that tank hydro tested witch shouldnt cost much and after thats done youre good for 5 years before it has to be done agian.

I would stay away from milwakee regs but some people have good experiences with them.

When you buy used things your always taking a chance but you know that.

i had that needle valve on a cheap paint ball regulator and absolutely hated it. theres was very little control. it was fairly innacurate. you might consider factoring in the cost of replacing it.

It is now priced at a fair price, but not a great deal. I'm guessing it will be overpriced by the end of the auction. I'm also not a fan of the Milwaukee regulator.
