Matches clean/chrome scheme
Broke after first use
This gauge looks simple, clean, and matches my scheme pretty well. It wasn't expensive either. I got mine on eBay for under $10 shipped.
Purchased this product a month ago, and went paintballing this weekend. The gauge was working fine all day, but when I got home to clean the gun, I noticed that the spring in the gauge is out of place, and the needled is well below 0. I gassed it up, and the needle moved, but was still under 0. The gauge is now only good for telling you if there's air, or no air in the system.
If Smart Parts won't replace this defective item. I will update on the return process.
This was probably a manufacture defect, and I'll be calling Smart Parts for a replacement.
Smart Parts has acknowledged the problem with the paper backing with the measurements shifting in some of their gauges. They have agreed to send me a replacement.
4 out of 10

It sounds like the gauge probably got over pressurised, which leads to the pointer hitting a post that stops it turning any further than the end of the scale. This in turn leads to the spring that the pointer is attached to being bent out of shape. When the gauge is depressurised, the pointer will no longer point at the scale.
The pointer returned to original position, it was the paper measurement behind the needle that was shifted. There's no way I can over pressurize the gauge, since it's never over 400 psi. The gauge is for 0-700. Smart Parts has acknowledged this problem, and will be sending me a new one.
