balances my marker well
ASA threads need to be clean.
Needs another set screw .
no tolerance for adjustment.
This is the only drop I've ever had on my 'cocker but it does its job and does it well so I've never felt the need to replace it. Never had a problem with it leaking, just remove the on / off knob (clean the threads and lubricate with Vaseline) remove the lug and oil the "O" ring with 3 in 1 or Gold Cup and put it back together. Do that every once in a while and it'll be fine. ( thats general maintenance)
Be sure to keep ASA threads clean and well oiled ( I think 3 in 1 works best just don't get sloppy with it) if the threads dry out or get dirty your tank will get stuck and it's a b**** to get off.
Go to the hardware store and buy the second set screw ( its an 8-32 3/8" I'm pretty sure) to keep on / off from coming loose.
General rule with on / off is only screw in the knob far enough to pressurize marker. If you screw it in all the way tight, thats when you're lug gets stuck or other things screw up.
Yes sir I like it, didn't have to modify it.
Wish it had greater adjustability.
EDIT: Been using for years and still no problems.
