This is a great reg for co2, and its only 55$, i admit its no palmer but its pretty good. I get +6/-6 and its not broken in. The reg looks damn sexy, but its really small in person, Its hard to get a good grip on it because its so small. Also, the input hole points outward for my spyder, so i have to grab the macro line when i hole the grip. oh well, also, the milling seems pretty strong to me.
or you can get red loc-tite and screw it in as much as you can and still have it lined up where you want. word of caution.... EASY on the amount of red. It'll hold well with just two or three drops. Anything beyond that and you're stepping into blowtorch territory if you have to remove your reg for any reason.
