Review: This gauge lasted me all of about 10 hours before the lens and faceplate blew out. Had it installed at about 3PM, and it failed at 1AM. The tank was pressurized to only 1,000psi in oder to allow the LocTite to cure. I WAS going to bring it back the next day to have the tank filled to 4,500psi.

I'm sure this is an exception, but can you imagine what would have happened if I had presurized it to 4,500psi? Hopefully, this unfortunate incident will be communicated to Bob Long, via the retailer, in a timely manner and more stringent standards will be effected at the manufacturer level.
Conclusion: I'm getting the gauge replaced, but I'm now considering switching brands. Wonder if the gauge was ever tested at the factory.
