So, it's marketed as a user serviceable and removable regulator, meaning that you don't need a certified airsmith to work on it.
The first thing I did was e-mail Smart Parts for instructions for putting the regulator onto and then removing it from the tank - 20 minutes later the reply was: "Screw it in TIGHT, the o-ring on the base of the regulator seals the gap, removing the need for locktite."
Okay, great! So I screw it in pretty tight, but I notice a small gap between the regulator and the bottle (i.e. I can see though the gap) - so it really does need to be TIGHT! Another turn or so and it was sealed and ready for the tank to be pressurized.
Took it to a friends house who has a scuba tank, and we filled it very, very slowly, finally got it to 3k and we left it at that.
Brought it back to my house, and although the tank shouldn't unscrew under pressure, I had the tank aimed at the engine block of my truck and dry fired the tank empty.
No problems, it works great and although I didn't put any paint though it - I didn't see any problems, the sound was consistent and keeping up 20bps on ramping.
So, all in all it seems like a great regulator.
However it does have a downside - it doesn't screw into an ASA, it has its own macroline attachment, so it's a direct connection - it comes with a dovetail mount and an mini drop-forward mount. But it's gonna be a pain to run it remote, if it's possible at all...
But fro me, it gets 8.5/10.
